Transfer Credit Policies

Transfer Credit Policies

Transfer credit is limited to six hours at the master’s level and 12 hours at the doctoral level. Only credit hours are transferable; any grades associated with transferred credit hours will not transfer and will not be included when computing the student’s GPA at the University of Tulsa.

The major program advisor is responsible for determining the applicability of transfer work to the student’s program. Any such graduate credit must have been earned at an accredited graduate school and completed within the six-year statute of limitations. Transfer credit will not be granted for any course work with a grade below B. Credit for transfer work will be recommended by the major program advisor to the Graduate School only after the student has completed the same number of credit hours at The University of Tulsa with at least a 3.0 grade-point average.

Transfer Credit forms are available in the Graduate School. Course work used to satisfy requirements for one graduate degree may not be used to meet the requirements for a second graduate degree. Credits earned under the Study Abroad program will appear on the University of Tulsa transcript with grades of either “P” or “F”. All transfer credit is subject to final approval by the Dean of the Graduate School.
