Transfer of Credit

A maximum of 9 semester hours of credit obtained at another institution may be accepted toward the degree, provided the credits meet the following criteria:

  • Work is completed at the graduate level for graduate credit
  • Student received a grade of 3.000 or better
  • Credits were earned at an accredited institution
  • Credits have not been used toward any other degree

Transfer credit will be offered only for courses that match a course offered at Northeastern University and that have been approved by the graduate committee. However, no transfer credit will be given for courses listed as Interdisciplinary courses.

Students can submit a request for transfer of credit after they have begun taking courses in the College of Computer and Information Science (CCIS). Please see your academic advisor for the procedure to submit a request.
