Graduate Transfer Credit Criteria

College graduate credits completed are acceptable for transfer under the following conditions:

  • Transfer of credits requests are not granted until students have been accepted into a program of study.
  • The course must have been a graduate-level course, taken for equivalent or greater credit at a regionally accredited college or university or nationally accrediting agency recognized by the USDE and CHEA. In the case of institutions outside the United States, the appropriate equivalent accreditation is required. Unless otherwise approved by the College Dean, “Equivalent graduate-level credit” refers to both content and degree level of the course.
  • Students must have earned a grade of “B” or better for any course submitted.

  • Programs may determine that certain courses are not eligible for transfer of credit.
  • Argosy University does not accept for graduate credit any credits earned as military credit, credit by examination, credit by correspondence, credit for life experience, or graduate credit from non-accredited schools unless offered in an approved program or under an arrangement approved by the dean of the appropriate college of Argosy University or otherwise provided for in this catalog.
  • Official transcripts are required for transfer credit to be considered.
  • Students may be required to provide a copy of the catalog description and/or the course syllabus from the institution where the credit was awarded to validate that the course satisfies the transfer credit criteria.
  • Argosy University will accept a maximum of 6 credit hours of graduate-level continuing education toward elective credit in a master’s degree program if offered through The Connecting Link, an approved partner of Argosy University, and approved as transfer credit by the dean of the degree program (see Section Thirteen, Graduate Course Listings for available courses).
  • Final decisions on accepting graduate-level continuing education coursework as transfer credit are made by the program in which the student is enrolled; therefore, students are not guaranteed that coursework will be accepted for transfer until they have applied for and received approval from the program chair of their program.
