New students wishing to transfer into one of our degree programs must go through the regular application process. A maximum of 30 percent of the didactic hours required for a graduate degree may be transferred from another VCU program or outside institution and, if not applied previously toward another degree, may be applied toward a degree. Prerequisite course work that does not count toward the VCU degree may not be transferred.
Once a student has matriculated into one of our engineering graduate degree programs, they may submit a request to transfer course credits. Recommendations regarding transfer credit are initiated at the program level and then submitted to the engineering graduate office for review. Final review and approval is completed by the Graduate School.
