Additional Program Information

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.

An exception is the Master of Science in Nursing where other coursework is generally not accepted for transfer credit.

Financial Aid

In order to be eligible for financial aid, you must be matriculated in a degree program and enrolled in at least two courses per semester. For more information visit the Framingham State University Financial Aid Office, or call 508-626-4534.

International Students

Most Framingham State University graduate programs are part-time and therefore do not satisfy the full time requirement for the F-1 visa.

TOEFL scores are required of applicants seeking admission from non-English speaking countries. The TOEFL may be waived if the applicant has successfully completed at least two full academic years in a college/university in the United States of America, United Kingdom, Australian, New Zealand or Canada.

Foreign transcripts must be evaluated by a Credit Evaluation service and translated into English.

Application materials such as transcripts, letters of recommendation, test score reports and copies of teaching licenses should be mailed directly to:
