A maximum of six (6) semester hours of transfer credits for graduate courses with a grade of 3.0 or higher may be accepted toward completion of a master's degree at Elizabeth City State University. The remaining hours must be earned in residence. Only courses that counted toward a degree at an accredited institution will be considered for transfer credit. Credits gained in correspondence courses at any institution will not be accepted.
Students wishing to transfer credits must submit official transcripts and other appropriate course identification information to their advisor for initial approval. The recommendations of the advisor are forwarded to the Graduate Program Coordinator, Department Chair, Dean of the School, and the Director of Graduate Education for final approval. Course work may be transferred upon the student's admission into a graduate education program. Course work transferred must not be older than six (6) years at the time the degree is awarded.
