You may transfer a maximum of (15) eligible credit hours from CU Boulder or CU Continuing Education.
Outside Institution Credits
You may transfer a maximum of (9) eligible credit hours from an outside institution and must have been issued by an accredited institution.
Furthermore, it is highly encouraged that transfer credits are completed prior to applying to the program. (Example, completed by Summer, 2020 if applying for Spring, 2021) Failure to do so may result in a delay of matriculation into the program.
As part of the admissions process, the Office of the Registrar will officially evaluate your credits approximately 2 weeks after acceptance into the program.
To determine if your credits are eligible to be transferred, please review the CU Admissions guidelines. Their office handles all transfer credit eligibility.
