The majority of credits toward any graduate or post-graduate degree program must be earned at South University. Credit for transfer work will be given if the courses were taken at an accredited collegiate institution, the course is equivalent to courses offered at South University, and the course carries a grade of “B” or better. All transfer credit will be reviewed and approved by the Dean, College of Business, and the Department Chair of the respective academic department. The maximum number of classes to transfer is four courses or 16 quarter hours.

NOTE: Capstone courses may not be transferred in from another institution. Credits earned at any South University campus will be accepted at all campuses. These credits will not be considered transfer credit; they will be included as credits earned at South University. If a campus should close a program in any state, students in good standing will be accepted at any South University campus having the same or a similar authorized degree program. The credits earned in the students’ original degree program will be applied to the degree program at the new location.
