Only credits for which students have earned a grade of “B-” or higher within a two-year period immediately prior to the effective term of admission are transferable from an accredited institution, including credits earned at Worcester State University. A maximum of 12 such graduate credits may be accepted. Acceptance of transfer credits is the responsibility of the full-time faculty in the relevant discipline in conjunction with the Graduate Council. Faculty may request syllabi to determine equivalencies. In all instances, no more than 12 semester hours of credit may be earned at any other institution other than Worcester State.
