Equivalent coursework completed at other institutions of recognized standing may be transferred to a master's degree program after evaluation and approval. Transferred courses do not appear on the UT Arlington Official Transcript and grades earned in transferred courses are not included in calculating a student's UT Arlington graduate grade-point average.
No more than nine hours of transfer credit will be granted except in the professional master's programs that require more than 36 hours of coursework. In such programs, the number of transfer hours is limited to 25 percent of the total program hours. This rule does not invalidate written agreements between graduate programs and the Graduate School or agreements that are stated elsewhere in this catalog. Transfer credit will be accepted only for organized courses in which the student received a letter grade of B or higher and an official transcript showing the course(s) and grade(s) is required.
Courses from other universities taken after a student has been admitted into a master's program at UT Arlington must be approved in advance by the appropriate Committee on Graduate Studies and is reviewed by the Graduate School. All work submitted for transfer credit must have been completed no more than six years before completion of a graduate program at UT Arlington.
To request transfer credit, students must complete the Transfer of Graduate Credit form and obtain approvals from the appropriate graduate advisor and chair of the Committee on Graduate Studies and final approval from the Graduate Dean.
