Graduate Transfer Credit


Credit earned at other institutions of higher education can only be credited toward graduate degrees at WVU if the institution is accredited at the graduate level. The maximum transfer credit permitted is 12 semester hours for Master's programs. Transfer credit is not restricted for doctoral students as doctoral degrees are not credit hours accumulation degrees. The student is responsible for having an official transcript sent to the Office of the Graduate Admissions. Transfer of credit is applicable for active students pursuing a Master's or Doctoral degree ONLY.

NOTE: Completion of doctoral degree requirements through work at other institutions can be entered as exceptions into DegreeWorks by a student’s program with or without formal transfer of credits.
