Criteria

  • They are taken at the graduate level.
  • They are applicable to the student's GGU degree objective.
  • They are taken at a regionally accredited institution with admission requirements comparable to those of GGU.
  • They are approved by the appropriate faculty member.

The following guidelines on graduate transfer credit should also be noted:

  • Courses completed with grades of B or better by students in graduate status are acceptable. (Courses with grades of B- are not acceptable for transfer).
  • The transcript shows that graduate units were given. (The units must not have been used toward completion of a bachelor's degree.)
  • Cooperative education units earned may be transferred with faculty approval.
  • Professional Military Education (PME) or training courses evaluated by the American Council on Education (ACE) may qualify for transfer credit. In considering the ACE recommendation, the university determines what level and amount of credit to accept.
  • Courses taken by correspondence are not acceptable for advanced program graduate transfer credit.

Additional Master’s degree

  • Applicants to master’s programs who have earned master’s degrees from other regionally accredited institutions may transfer-in up to 12 units of prior coursework to GGU and have it applied toward their GGU master’s degree programs, with the approval of their program directors or deans. However, the requirements for the GGU program, including academic residency, must still be satisfied.
  • Applicants to master’s programs who have earned master’s degrees from GGU may have up to 12 units of coursework waived from each additional program, with the approval of their deans. However, the requirements for subsequent programs, including academic residency, must still be satisfied.

International Transfers

Official academic documents are required to perform a full review of student’s transferability of credits. All official documents including academic transcripts must be received on or before the first day of instruction for student’s first term at GGU. To determine what official documents are required after being admitted to GGU, please visit GGU4You or contact an Enrollment Counselor. Eligibility to transfer academic credits from other institutions is dependent on a number of factors. For more details see GGU Transfer Credit Policy.
