Degree Questions

Approval for transfer credit from another university is rare, as most students do not meet all of the criteria listed here:

  • Please make sure that you meet all criteria listed in link above, before submitting request.
  • Transfer credit is processed for use towards a Master’s Degree only. PhD programs are not course-based, therefore we do not process transfer credit for them. 
  • Follow the steps listed in the linked PDF: Transfer credit from another university. (Temporarily unavailable)

The anticipated time to degree is between 1-2 years depending on individual student academic plan and available course offerings. Per Academic Senate there is no maximum year cap; students are encouraged to graduate as soon as requirements are completed.

There is an academic residency requirement. The minimum residence requirement is three quarters. Residence is established by satisfactory completion of six units per quarter.
