Transferring Credits

BU Wheelock may accept transfer credits into a graduate program if those credits have not already been used for a completed degree. After you are admitted, you can transfer credits for evaluation. Only up to 8 credits may be transferred to BU Wheelock. For more information, view our full transfer credit policy.

Field-Based Experiences

BU Wheelock students routinely participate in field-based experiences as part of their program curriculum and requirements. Most field sites require criminal background checks to determine students’ eligibility for participation. History of a criminal record may disqualify you from participating in these required experiences, which in turn may impede the successful completion of your degree program.
