Transfer Credit

The Cullen College of Engineering only allows a maximum of six credit hours of graduate transfer credit (with a grade of A or B) toward a Master’s or PhD degree, upon approval of your departmental Graduate Advisor and the Associate Dean of Graduate Studies and Research of the College.  For further transfer credit guidelines, visit the Transfer Credit  section of the Graduate Catalog. 

Credit Level Changes

  • A graduate student may apply up to six semester credit hours taken as a post-baccalaureate (PB) student toward a Master’s degree with departmental and college approval.  No course applied to complete the requirements for a prior degree can be used to satisfy the requirements for a later degree.  A written request to change credit-level must be submitted through the departmental Graduate Advisor to the departmental Graduate Admissions Assistant for approval within one year after receiving notice of acceptance into the graduate program.
  • Courses taken by a PB student who does not qualify for admission to graduate school because of a deficient GPA cannot be transferred to graduate credit after the PB student has been admitted to a graduate program.
