Transfer Credits/courses to other University
You can change your University after completing a semester...
Most of the Universities allows transfer of credit from one University to other.
But there are some requirements:
- Only credit hours associated with graduate courses for which a grade of B or better were obtained may be eligible for transfer.
A copy of the catalog description of the course and an official transcript showing completion of the course(s) and the grade received in the course (s) must be submitted with the plan of study.
- For transfer credit, students should refer to the general policies of the University Graduate School. No more than 6/9(Some universities allow 6 and some 9 ) credits towards the Master of Science in Engineering may be earned at another university.
- Credit must have been granted by a regionally accredited, U.S. institution or foreign university.
- The credit must not have been used to satisfy the requirements for any other degree.
- You must furnish an official transcript to the Graduate Records Office.
These are most common requirements and may vary with Universities.

Transfer of Credit:
All graduate study credits
offered as transfer credit must meet the following criteria:
- No more than six credit
hours of graduate work may be transferred from another institution, unless the
program has special approval by the Graduate Council. When changing programs
within UMCP, the student may request inclusion of credits earned at UMCP.
When moving from non-degree to degree-seeking status, however, Advanced
Special Students may not include more than six (6) credits.
- The advisor and
Director of Graduate Studies will need to certify that any courses listed are
applicable to the student's program and, for non-UMCP courses, that the
courses have been re-validated.
- Credit must have been
granted by a regionally accredited, U.S. institution or foreign university. If
the latter, evaluation by International Educational Services and the Graduate
School is required.
- The courses must be at
the graduate level and have been taken for graduate credit at the original
- The student must have
earned a grade of "B" or better in the course and have a "B" or better average
on all the graduate course work taken at the institution from which the
transfer is requested.
- The credit must not
have been used to satisfy the requirements for any other degree.
- The student must
furnish an official transcript to the Graduate Records Office.
- Transfer work satisfies
only the 400-level requirements for the master's degree and does not apply to
the upper-level requirements.
- The transfer course
work must have been taken within seven years of the award of UMCP's master's
degree for which the student is currently enrolled. All other course work
must be taken within five years of the master's degree.
According to Michigan State University (CS
Graduate credits earned in another graduate program may be accepted by the
Department up to a maximum of 9 credits (excluding research, thesis and
independent study credits). Students from the MCEE institutions are allowed up
to 14 credits. In such a case, the completed ?Credit Evaluation: Graduate
Program? form is to be included with the program. Transfer credit will be given
only for courses in which a grade of 3.0 (out of 4) or better was earned and
whose content is still relevant and timely.
