Up to 12 semester hour credits (the equivalent of four (4) doctoral level courses) from a regionally accredited university are eligible to be reviewed by an admissions committee for approval of transfer. The transfer courses must have been completed in the past five (5) years with an equivalent grade of “B” or above. Courses applied toward an earned master’s degree are not eligible to be reviewed for transfer.
A Transfer Credit Petition Form and official transcripts for courses considered for transfer must be submitted as part of the Ed.D. in Educational Leadership or Higher Education application package. Union Institute & University reserves the right to apply, or not apply, acceptable transfer credit toward its degree requirements.
