Transfer Credit

Requests for a waiver of a program prerequisite or approval of transfer credit of an equivalent graduate course completed at another accredited college or university will be considered at the time of admission based on course descriptions and documentation submitted with the student’s application. Courses accepted in transfer must meet the academic criteria established by Framingham State University. A maximum of two (2) graduate courses may be accepted in transfer and applied toward a Framingham State University degree program.

Candidates are expected to have 3+ years of professional work experience, and a minimum of a 2.8 Undergraduate G.P.A. Candidates that do not meet these minimums are still encouraged to apply, and may be invited to an interview with the admissions committee.
