Transfer Credit Procedure

The academic advisor, in consultation as necessary with division coordinators, is responsible for the evaluation of undergraduate transfer credit and may consult with a faculty member who teaches the specific course or in the program at issue. Studio credit involves a portfolio review from the appropriate divisional area. Questions of transfer credit for other subject areas should be referred to the College advising office via the academic advisor.

Graduate transfer credit is evaluated according to the process described in the current graduate school catalog.  Masterʼs degree transfer credit may be accepted if the criteria are met and the student's adviser, the graduate coordinator, and the dean approve the transfer credit. Kent State University policy allows up to 12 credit hours to transfer into a graduate program from another master's degree program, provided those credit hours are of “B (3.0) quality” or better and less than six years old at the time the degree is conferred at Kent State.
