How do I transfer credit to my degree?

Graduate credit may be transferred from graduate schools of regionally accredited institutions.  Transfer credit is not automatic and is made upon the recommendation of the chairperson of the major department, the academic college dean or designee and approval of the Dean of the Division of Graduate Studies.  Credits are usually transferred during or at the end of the student's first semester of enrollment.  Students should not assume that all graduate credits earned at other institutions will be transferred.  
    
Only those hours in which the student has achieved a grade of "B"  will be considered for transfer..  These credits must be in an area that is the same as, or closely related to, the major field of concentration.   Students should consult with the specific degree program for regulations pertaining to the program.  Time limits apply to transfer credit.  All master's and specialist students must complete their programs within eight years of starting coursework at Jackson State or elsewhere. 

A maximum of 15 semester hours of  transfer may be applied toward the doctoral degree.  Students should consult with the specific degree program for regulations pertaining to the program. Time limits apply to transfer credit.
