Transfer and Extension Credit

Up to six semester hours of LSU extension and/or non-matriculating credit, and up to 12 semester hours of transfer credit from other U.S. universities may, in some cases, be applied to a Master's degree program if approved by the department and the Dean of the Graduate School . To petition for acceptance for transfer credit, the student must have completed at least nine hours of graduate residence credit at LSU and have no grade lower than a "B" on graduate work at any institution. Transfer work must have been taken for a graduate residence credit, must have been a part of an otherwise satisfactory graduate program, must be judged appropriate to the student's program by the IE Department faculty, must be taught by a professor whose credentials are comparable to those of graduate faculty members at LSU, and must in terms of time invested be comparable to graduate courses at LSU.
