Can I transfer any courses from other colleges or universities?
The transfer of certain courses in Educational Administration from another university is possible with the approval of an advising professor. Approval is based on the advising professor's analysis of how the proposed course compares with the offerings at Kent State University along with a review of the course syllabus. Up to 12 hours (four classes) can be approved for transfer if the number of credits and curriculum offerings are equal from the outside institution to Kent State University. Courses in other areas such as curriculum and instruction, counseling, and general education are generally not transferable. This procedure also applies to candidates for the Educational Specialist and Doctor of Philosophy degrees
I almost have a Master's degree in secondary curriculum and instruction; can I transfer some of that work into a degree in educational administration?
In general, courses in educational administration are the only ones considered for transfer. Occasionally, one course (three credit hours) outside of educational administration core requirements can be considered by advising faculty for transfer. This is on a case-by-case basis and the requirements for consideration are rigid. For more specific questions, see your advisor.
