Transfer of Graduate Program

Section 2.9 of the Graduate School Handbook

Students may transfer from one graduate program to another by applying to that program via the Graduate and Professional Admissions website and selecting the Intra-University transfer application. This application requires the approval of the Graduate Studies Committee in the receiving program. Current students or students who have not been enrolled in a graduate program for one calendar year, or less, are required to have approval from the Graduate Studies Committee in the current program.

The Graduate School will verify student-provided information pertaining to the student’s academic performance to the Graduate Studies Committee of the proposed graduate program. The Graduate Studies Committee may require additional material from the student before review. If the Graduate Studies Committee approves the transfer, it will specify the admission classification and the courses already completed that will count toward its graduate degree program.

The Graduate Studies Committee must notify the Graduate School of the admission classification and courses to count prior to the effective semester or term of transfer. Graduate School Fellowships do not automatically transfer with students who are approved for transfer into a different graduate program. Doctoral candidacy status does not generally transfer to a new graduate program.
