Transfer credits are approved at the university level. Thus, we are unable to make guarantees about which credits will transfer. Upon acceptance to a program, you will work with your advisor on this issue. Grades in these courses must be a B or better. Transfer credits are more likely accepted when they have been earned recently, are from an accredited institution and are clearly related to the program in which you are currently enrolled.
Credits earned at other institutions must be approved by your program and then by the Graduate School after admission. In all cases, these credits are limited to a maximum of 9 credits toward the master’s degree and 30 credits toward the doctorate. You will be asked to provide the course name and number, course description and proof of your grade. In some cases advisors may also ask to see syllabi.
Up to 15 credits of graduate-level coursework earned at UF with a letter grade of B or better may be applied toward a graduate degree at UF if credit for the course has not been used for an undergraduate degree, and if the transfer is approved by the academic unit and the Graduate School. Once again, this process does not start until a student is admitted.
