Graduate Transfer Information

Transfer credits are limited to six credits per student 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. 

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.

Pre-Approval Request – For degree seeking candidates in a Wilkes University graduate program who wish to complete a course at another accredited institution for transfer credits.

Permission to Transfer Graduate Credits for previous graduate academic work from another college must have been completed within six years prior to the date of your admission to Wilkes and must have a grade of B or better; pass/fail grades are not transferrable unless the "Pass" can be substantiated in writing as a grade by the former institution.
Currently enrolled Wilkes students who want to take a graduate course at another institution while matriculating at Wilkes and transfer these credits toward their Wilkes MS degree must get pre-approval before enrolling in a course at another institution.
If a student is transferring credits to Wilkes to complete the master's degree 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.
