Requests for the transfer of graduate credits completed at other accredited institutions of higher learning towards completion of a graduate program at AUD will be evaluated by the appropriate Admissions Committee on a case-by-case basis. The number of graduate courses transferred or accepted for credit towards a graduate degree at AUD may not exceed two (2) courses or six (6) credit hours.
As a rule, such transfer or acceptance will be highly restricted and may only be granted in cases where there is ample evidence that the graduate coursework in question is at least equal in scope and quality to comparable graduate coursework at AUD. In assessing such evidence, the appropriate Admissions Committee will make use of a wide variety of instruments and information sources, such as recognized guides to post-secondary institutions and programs, the other institutions’ catalogs and/or web sites, course syllabi, and letters from instructors at those other institutions describing in detail the applicant’s work in these courses.
In all cases, students must earn the majority of their final year credits towards the graduate program at AUD.
