of transfer credit from approved institutions is often
dependent on the pertinence of the work to the degree
program being pursued. Coursework that lies outside
the scope of the degree program is not necessarily applicable
for degree credit. Transfer students should confer with
their program of study departments at an early date
to insure that no misunderstanding occurs with regard
to the use of transfer credits in their degree plans.
transfer credits must be approved by the Vice Provost
for Research and Graduate Studies and may be subject
to the following restrictions:
least 30 graduate term credits (equivalent to 20 semester
credits) of any master's degree program must be taken
transfer credits must have a grade of B or higher,
and the student's overall average in all prior graduate
work must be a minimum of B.
graduate credit will not be taken unless it is within
the general time limit of seven years prior to the
receipt of a degree.
who take a course off-campus and who would like to have
it approved should submit a syllabus to their Drexel
advisor. If the course can be included in the plan of
study, the student may take the course off-campus, and
submit a copy of the transcript to the advisor once
again for final approval. No credit will be allowed
for correspondence or extension work.
