from an approved and accredited college or university as long as they meet all of
the requirements identified in the University-wide Transfer Creditssection of the
Graduate Bulletin and the specific criteria below. Transfer credits are limited to
six credits per student not per degree at Wilkes University. The Chair of Master's
Department will make the final determination regarding transfer credits and whether
they will count as elective credits or qualify to replace required courses. In order
for courses to count as electives, they must (in general) meet the academic intent
of the student’s masters program or be aligned to their respective professional assignment.
Each transfer request is handled on a case-by-case basis and the student must complete
the Request for Transfer Credit form. Wilkes reserves the right to periodically review
courses that have been previously approved as transfer credits to determine if they
continue to align with our current curriculum.
Permission Request – For degree seeking candidates in a Wilkes University graduate program who would like to transfer credit(s) already completed at another accredited institution.

the student cannot be approved for graduation until all transfer credits are approved by the department, an "official" transcript has been received at Wilkes from the institution granting the credit, and the approved transfer credits are posted to your Wilkes University transcript. All paperwork must be received before each semester's Wilkes graduation clearance deadline.
