From MWSU Graduate School Policy Portal
A maximum of 6 approved credits of graduate work can be transferred to MWSU from another regionally accredited university and counted toward a Missouri Western graduate degree. Upon approval of the graduate program and graduate dean, more than 6 hours can be transferred under special circumstances (e.g., student already has a Master’s degree, or coursework was taken at another Missouri state funded institution). All transfer credits must be approved by the graduate program director to which the student is applying and Graduate Dean and will be counted toward the graduate GPA.
Please use the Graduate Transfer Credit Form
The intent of transfer credits is to allow students who have completed coursework at other institutions prior to attending Missouri Western to count those credits. Courses taken at other institutions after admission to a Western graduate program generally will not be approved.
Courses Taken While Non Degree Seeking
Additionally, a maximum of 6 graduate credits taken at MWSU while at non-degree seeking status may be counted toward a graduate degree.
For certificate programs, a maximum of 6 credits, either transferred or taken while at non-degree seeking status, may be counted toward the program. Additional transfer credits or other exceptions to these rules must receive approval by the department/ program director and Graduate Dean
