Transfer Credit Policy

Graduate courses taken prior to matriculation are considered “Transfer of Credit.”

Students may request transfer credit for relevant graduate courses taken at regionally accredited institutions, including courses taken at Hunter College while matriculated in another degree program, whether or not the master’s degree was awarded.

  • Application for transfer and approval of course credits taken prior to matriculation may be made after registering for the first semester of matriculation.
