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 list.
- The courses must not be used to satisfy the requirements for a BS degree.
- 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.
