Transfer of Credits

Applicants or matriculated students of the NSU-KPCOM M.P.H. program may petition for transfer of a maximum of 12 semester hours of elective or core courses toward their M.P.H. degree from a regionally accredited graduate program. Please note that

  • Any core courses to be transferred must have been taken at a program, school, or college accredited by the Council on Education for Public Health (CEPH).
  • While enrolled in NSU’s M.P.H. program, any courses taken at another academic program or institution that the student desires to transfer credit to the NSU-KPCOM M.P.H. program from, must have prior approval by the NSU program director.
  • All courses considered for transfer into the program must have been successfully completed with a grade of B or better and must not have been applied to another awarded degree.
  • Transfer course grades are not calculated toward the student’s grade point average.
  • The applicant must submit a written request to the NSU-KPCOM program director, along with the appropriate verification of documents (e.g., official transcripts, syllabi, and catalogs).
  • The program does not give course credits for prior work experience.

The Curriculum Committee will review the documents provided for all applications for transfer of credits and will submit recommendations to the program director. The dean makes the final decision.
