Credit Transfer is a mechanism that ensures the easy transfer of students between higher education institutions in the United States and throughout the world.

- Students with a total of 15-20 credit hours from an authorized university/college may transfer their credits.
- Concerned faculty or institution will examine all prior university/college transcripts to see which credits may be transferable.
- Every course taken by a student to another university/college will be reviewed by the dean’s office.
- To be eligible for credit transfer, the student must complete at least 50% of the program’s credit hours.
- The student must have received at least a ‘B’ in each subject.
- A student who has completed a portion of the master’s degree but wishes to quit studies may also withdraw from the program. In such circumstances, a certificate detailing the student’s program credit must be issued.
