Transfer Credits

Master's Students Transfer Credits Policy

Qualified, accepted Master’s degree seeking students may transfer up to 12 master’s level credits earned from an accredited college or university and must be equivalent to the relevant Keiser University courses.

  • Credits for courses from a non-accredited institution which are substantially equivalent in content to Keiser University and are applicable to the applicant’s program of study may be granted on a course-by-course basis.
  • Transfer credits from a non-U.S. college or university are evaluated and granted on a course equivalency basis. The Graduate School must receive an official transcript evaluated by an approved educational evaluator service attesting that the course/s are equivalent to course/s earned at an accredited institution of higher education in the United States.
  • Acceptable courses will be equivalent to a B grade or higher. Those course/s represented with a Pass or Satisfactory grade may be transferrable at the discretion of the program chair and/or appropriate program Dean.

Doctoral Students Transfer Credits Policy

Qualified, accepted Doctoral degree seeking students may transfer up to 18 graduate-level credits earned from an accredited college or university and must be equivalent to the relevant Keiser University courses.

  • Credits for courses from a non-accredited institution which are substantially equivalent in content to Keiser University and are applicable to the applicant’s program of study may be granted on a course-by-course basis.
  • Transfer credits from a non-U.S. college or university are evaluated and granted on a course equivalency basis. The Graduate School must receive an official transcript evaluated by an approved educational evaluator service attesting that the course/s are equivalent to course/s earned at an accredited institution of higher education in the United States.
  • Acceptable courses will be equivalent to a B grade or higher. Those course/s represented with a Pass or Satisfactory grade may be transferrable at the discretion of the program chair and/or appropriate program Dean.

Additional Policies

  • Requests for Military Transfer Credit will be evaluated through the existing Keiser University policy (SEE POLICY on Transfer Credit for Military Training and Education) and should be submitted through the JST portal preferably with ACE review and recommendations for transfer credit equivalency.
  • Requests for Life, Work or Experiential Learning Credit will be evaluated through the existing Keiser University policy (SEE POLICY on Credit for Life Experience) through the College Credit by Portfolio Process.
  • Students who are interested in continuing their education at an institution other than Keiser University Graduate School should first make inquiry at the institution they plan to attend to determine credits and requirements needed for entrance to that institution. Transferability of credit is up to the discretion of the receiving institution. Keiser University Graduate School cannot assure transfer of credit.

Procedure(s)

Accepted graduate students wishing to have their credits evaluated for transfer to Keiser University Graduate School must submit the following:

An unofficial copy of their transcript (s) from an accredited college or university or JST. An official transcript must be received by the end of the first semester, or no transfer credits will be officially granted.

A copy of the course syllabus or course description for any course/s they wish to have reviewed for transfer. Courses in the student’s major must meet the same general course objectives as Keiser University Graduate School courses.

Approved articulation agreements with other colleges, universities or entities will also be considered and recognized for transfer of credit when applicable.

Transcripts will be evaluated by a member of the Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs’ team and will be communicated to the applicant thereafter. It is our goal to provide transfer credit evaluations in a timely and responsive manner; however, volume may impact our timeline for completion.

It may be necessary for students to forfeit some previously earned credit in the transfer process since college philosophies, objectives and programs may vary and change from year to year. Therefore, Keiser University makes no blanket statement or promise of acceptance of credits from any other institution.

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.
