Use of Master's Credits
Doctoral students may be able to apply up to 30 credits from their master’s degree. While this is the case for most students, it is not guaranteed or automatic. It is dependent on a number of factors, including alignment between the master’s field of study and the intended doctoral field of study. It is up to the department faculty to review and approve the use of master’s credits.
