Transfer of Graduate Credit (Available to Part-time Students Only)

Transfer with Replacement

The maximum number of credits earned at another regionally accredited college or university that may be transferred with replacement into a graduate degree program in the Carey Business School in no case can exceed four credits or two classes. Any request for transfer credit must be submitted within the first semester. Coursework must be completed within the last 5 years and the student must have a “B+” or better in the completed coursework. Faculty Course Leads make the final decision on course equivalencies, but student should start the process with their academic advisor. The Waiver Exam policy is separate from the Transfer of Graduate Credit policy. See the Waiver Exam policy for more information.

Full-time degree programs at the Carey Business School do not allow transfer credits.

Transfer from Another JHU School

The maximum number of credits earned at another school within Johns Hopkins University that may be transferred into a graduate degree program in the Carey Business School in no case can exceed four credits or two classes as long as each course transferred counts toward one two-credit course. Academic Program Directors make the final decision on how transfer credits will be applied to specific degree requirements, but students should start the process with their academic advisor. Dual degree students may not apply transfer credits from other divisions of Johns Hopkins towards completion of their Carey degree. All credits earned towards the Carey portion of a dual degree must be earned in the Carey Business School.

Students in full-time academic programs at other Johns Hopkins University divisions may take classes at the Carey Business School as a graduate level, non-degree seeking student. These interdivisional requests for enrollment will be processed the week before the semester starts to allow degree-seeking students ample time to register for classes.

Only six credits earned as a non-degree student may be counted toward an MBA, MS or Graduate Certificate from the Carey Business School.
