Acceptance of transfer credits at the time of admission -
If the applicant has completed graduate course work prior to admission, he/she must submit a written request as part of the Application for Graduate Admission with the course description(s) and/or course syllabus and an official transcript in a sealed envelope. The College of Graduate and Professional Studies will have the course(s) evaluated along with the admission application by the Program Coordinator. Written notification of the results of the evaluation will be sent with the acceptance packet. Graduate credits used to satisfy undergraduate degree requirements cannot be reused for graduate credit.
Approval to take courses outside the institution once admitted -
Any regularly enrolled graduate student, who wishes to take graduate course work at another institution to transfer to Longwood, must secure prior permission from the College of Graduate and Professional Studies. The student should send a written request to the College of Graduate and Professional Studies accompanied by an official course description and/or course syllabus. The request will be forwarded to the appropriate Program Coordinator for evaluation and then returned to Graduate Studies. The College of Graduate and Professional Studies will provide the student with a written "Authorization for Transfer Credit" form if the course is transferable. Upon completion of the course, the student must have an official transcript sent directly to the College of Graduate and Professional Studies for processing to the Office of Registration.
