No more than a total of eight graduate credits earned at another institution and/or graduate credit earned as a special student (see above) may be counted toward the M.S. in Accounting at Rhodes. A minimum grade of B- must be earned for any course credit to be transferred.
Transfer Credit Guidelines. The following guidelines are used in evaluating academic work from other institutions for graduate transfer credit.
- The institution at which the course work is taken must be an accredited college or university.
- Correspondence courses and distance learning (Internet) courses will not be accepted for meeting the program’s prerequisites, area courses, or degree requirements.
- To be accepted for credit, each course must be judged comparable in terms of content and quality to a course in the graduate curriculum at Rhodes. The Program Director makes these judgments.
- All course work taken at other institutions for which Rhodes receives a transcript will be evaluated for transfer credit, and if acceptable, will be posted to the student’s record.
- A maximum of 4 credits (1 credit = 1 semester hour) will be accepted toward the Rhodes M.S. in Accounting degree. Transfer credits based on a quarter system are converted to the Rhodes credit basis using the formula that one quarter hour equals two-thirds credit. Fractional transfer credits will be credited.
- Transfer credits are not accepted if the grade is C+ or below. Transfer credits are credited to the Rhodes transcript as credits only; they are not used to determine the grade point average.
- Transfer credit may be used to satisfy M.S. degree requirements.
