For each transfer course listed below there should be a corresponding UNC-CH course it is replacing. In the case that there is

After thorough evaluation, I recommend the following courses for transfer credit.

Transfer Credit Hours
Master’s Students: Up to six of the 30 minimum credit hours, or up to 20% of the total credit hours required for programs
with more than 30 hour requirements, may be transferred from accredited institutions or from other graduate programs
within this institution. Grades earned on transferred work must be equivalent to B or better. Transfer credit does not satisfy
semesters in residence credit.
Doctoral Students: No credit hour limitation. Graduate coursework must be from accredited institutions or from other
graduate programs within this institution and cannot be dissertation enrollment credit. Grades earned on transferred work
must be equivalent to B or better. Transfer credit does not satisfy semesters in residence credit.
Credit received for graduate-level courses taken as an undergraduate may be transferred into either degree above with the
program’s approval provided the course did not count toward the requirements of the undergraduate degree.
