Transfer Credit

Students who have completed graduate coursework at a regionally accredited institution prior to attending Saint Louis University may request an evaluation for transfer credit by submitting the Petition for Transfer of Graduate Credit.  

Transfer credit may not exceed 20% of total credits required for the degree program. Exception: The School of Law allows up to 33% transfer credits toward the Juris Doctor.

Coursework may be considered for transfer credit if all of the following conditions are met:

  • The coursework is completed at a regionally accredited institution or at an international institution verified to be equivalent to regionally accredited.
  • The final grade received must have been "B" or higher.
  • The coursework did not count towards the graduation requirements of an awarded degree.
