The Dean of the Graduate School evaluates transcripts and determines potential transfer credit granted to students. The following guidelines are used in evaluating transcripts received from other accredited institutions:
- Official transcripts must be received directly from the former institution within a student’s first semester or no transfer credits are officially granted.
- Course descriptions from a former institution’s catalog are analyzed and credit is accepted for those successfully completed courses that parallel course content and duration of Keiser University courses. Courses in a student’s major must meet the same general course objectives as Keiser University courses.
- Only courses with a grade of "B" or higher are considered for transfer credit.
- Graduate students may transfer no more than six semester credit hours to the graduate program at Keiser University and must meet graduate residency requirements.
Transfer from International Institutions
Upon receipt of an official transcript, transfer credits from non-U.S. colleges/universities are evaluated and granted on a course equivalency basis. The Dean must receive an evaluation of official transcripts by an approved educational evaluator service attesting that the courses are equivalent to courses earned at a regionally accredited institution of higher education in the United States. Transfer credits are granted only for courses in which a grade of "B" or higher was earned (3.0 on a 4.0 scale).
Transfer of Credits from Keiser University
Students who are interested in continuing their education at an institution other than Keiser University should first make inquiry at the institution they plan to attend to determine credits and requirements needed for entrance to that institution. Transferability of credits is at the discretion of a receiving institution. Keiser University cannot assure transfer of credit. Students should contact the Dean of the Graduate School for specific information.
