Transfer Policy and Residency Requirement
Once admitted and enrolled in a graduate program at Bay Path University, students are not allowed to take and transfer in credit from other institutions. To qualify for any graduate degree, students must complete a minimum of two-thirds of degree credits at Bay Path in order to meet the residency requirement.
Transfer Credit Approval Process
- Credits transferring from other institutions: For courses taken at other institutions prior to matriculation in Bay Path University’s Graduate School, only courses with a grade of “B” or better will be considered for transfer approval. Students seeking transfer credit approval for courses taken prior to matriculation must submit official copies of their transcript to the admissions office and must meet with their graduate program director for review and approval. The graduate program director makes the ultimate decision about the acceptance of transfer credit. The Graduate School transfer credit approval form must be completed and signed by the graduate program director and submitted to the registrar’s office.
- Credits transferring from a Bay Path University graduate degree program: Graduate students who have completed one Bay Path University graduate degree and wish to transfer credit from this program into another Bay Path University graduate degree program may do so pending the approval of the graduate program director for the additional degree program. Students seeking an additional graduate degree must complete a minimum of two-thirds of degree credits at Bay Path in this additional program (in addition to credit already earned in previous Bay Path University graduate programs) in order to meet the residency requirement for the additional degree.
