Transfer Credit

A maximum of 6 approved credits of graduate work can be transferred to Missouri Western from another regionally accredited university and counted toward a Missouri Western graduate degree. Upon approval of the graduate program director and Graduate Dean, more than 6 hours can be transferred under special circumstances (e.g., student already has a Master’s degree, or coursework was taken at another Missouri state funded institution). All transfer credits will be counted toward the graduate overall GPA. 

To request acceptance of graduate credit from another college or university a Graduate Transfer Credit Form must be submitted to the Graduate School Office for approval.

The intent of transfer credits is to allow students who have completed coursework at other institutions prior to attending Missouri Western to count those credits. Courses taken at other institutions after admission to a Missouri Western graduate program generally will not be approved.
