Transfer of Credits into the University

Transfer of credit acceptance is always the decision of the individual college or university and is at the sole discretion of the receiving institution. Accreditation does not guarantee transfer of credits. Students interested in transferring credits earned at MUST University should check with the receiving institution directly to determine to what extent, if any, credits can be transferred. The request to transfer credit into MUST University must be initiated by the applicant or student. Requests for transfer credit should be submitted prior to enrollment, and only under extenuating circumstances may an exception be made with the approval of the University President, in which case all necessary documents must be received no later than 45 calendar days after the start date or re-entry date of the student’s program.


To apply for consideration of credits previously earned, students must request official transcripts be sent directly to the University to the attention of the Registrar. Students may be required to provide a relevant catalog and/or other relevant documents regarding the course(s) to be considered. Foreign Transcripts shall be translated by a third-party agency authorized to perform official translations.

NON-MATRICULATED STUDENTS

This status is for students who are not seeking a degree or certificate at the time of admission, are not interested in receiving financial support, and who wish to waive placement testing and academic advisement which would normally determine the suitability of their courses for degree fulfillment or transfer credit. These students will comply with steps 1-4 of the admission requirements only. However, if they later desire to become an enrolled student, must then apply through the General Admission process.

  • In addition to the General Admissions Requirements, students pursuing an Associate’s Degree at MUST University must successfully complete a minimum of 60 semester credit hours. The total credit hours for the Associate of Science Degree include: 15 credit hours (mandatory) of prescribed general education courses, and 45 credit hours of prescribed major courses (including 12 credits of Elective Courses).
  • In addition to the General Admissions Requirements, students pursuing a Bachelor’s Degree at MUST University must successfully complete a minimum of 120 semester credit hours. The total credit hours for the Bachelor of Science Degree include: 30 credit hours (mandatory) of prescribed general education courses, and 90 credit hours of prescribed major courses.

ADDITIONAL GRADUATE ADMISSION REQUIREMENTS

  • Provide official transcripts showing the bachelor’s degree or equivalent credential was earned from an institution accredited by an agency recognized by the U.S. Department of Education or its international equivalent.

  • An undergraduate degree in a specific field is not a requirement; qualified students from all backgrounds are encouraged to apply.
