On a case-by-case basis, students may receive approval for up to 27 graduate transfer credits. Previously earned graduate credits in standardized core content areas (e.g., statistics, research methods, biological bases) are more likely to be approved than program-specific clinical courses. Due to carefully sequenced clinical training, students with transfer credits will not be able to reduce the overall number of semesters of required training.

Transfer credits are not reviewed prior to program admission. Transfer credits of admitted students are approved by the program after review by the student’s advisor and the instructor of the relevant course. Incoming students should petition their advisors for such credits early in their first semester. Approval of a large number of credit hours in transfer credits, i.e., approaching 27 credits, is likely to occur only in cases of previously earned doctoral degrees.
