A maximum of 12 quarter hours of graduate course credit
completed at other graduate schools may be counted toward
completion of the Master's degree at Rose-Hulman with the approval
of the student's advisory committee and the chair of the department
that would offer an equivalent course. Graduate courses (5xx)
completed at Rose-Hulman with a B or better grade and not required
toward the undergraduate degree may be accepted as transfer credit
under the same 12 quarter hour limit. Transfer credit will not
include a grade, and as such, will not impact the GPA.
Alternatively, Rose Hulman undergraduate students may elect to
have both the credit hours and grade included as part of their
graduate transcript by adhering to the following procedure:
- The courses must be included in the Department of Graduate
Studies Bulletin as approved for graduate credit. See graduate course
- The courses must not be used to satisfy the requirements for a
- They must also be a part of his/her plan of study to be
included in the required hours for the graduate degree program.
(Those not included on the plan of study would still appear
on the graduate transcript and impact the overall GPA.)
- The student must request permission to receive graduate credit
prior to enrollment in the course.
Exceptions to the allowed transfer credit as outlined above must
be approved by the Graduate Studies Committee. Any questions
concerning rules, procedures, etc., relating to graduate work
should be directed to the Associate Dean of the Faculty.
