Transfer Credit

Students pursuing an MA in Curriculum & Instruction Language and Culture may transfer up to 6 units of master’s level coursework from accredited institutions and 12 units from the University of Redlands core teaching courses as long as the units will not be in obsolescence (older than six years) by the student’s anticipated date of program completion.
Courses that will be obsolete by the anticipated date of completion will not be counted toward a graduate degree and cannot be transferred. Students work with their designated advisor on their request. Syllabi are required for consideration of non-University of Redlands courses.
The Program Chair reviews the candidate's transcripts and syllabi to determine if the units can be applied to the master's degree. Depending on the number of transfer credits applied, the student’s program length may be altered.
