Policy on Matriculated Students Taking Courses Elsewhere

After degree-seeking students have matriculated at Stevenson University's School of Graduate and Professional Studies, transfer of courses from other institutions requires advanced approval on the form entitled Request To Take Courses At Another Institution. Approval of these requests is based on clear evidence that such courses are comparable to the Stevenson University description.

Approval of these requests is made by the Dean of the School of Graduate and Professional Studies. The following guidelines apply:

  1. All major requirements must be taken at Stevenson University.
  2. Because the curriculum is based on a special commitment to writing, all writing courses must be taken at Stevenson University.
  3. The last 30 credits must be taken at Stevenson University.
  4. Courses may not be taken elsewhere during a semester (Summer terms) in which they are being offered at Stevenson.

Exceptions for any of these guidelines can be made only by the Dean of the School of Graduate and Professional Studies.
