Transferring Credits into a Graduate Program

BU Wheelock may accept transfer credits into a graduate program if those credits were not used toward a previously conferred degree. Credits can be transferred for evaluation after a student is admitted to a graduate program. To view our full transfer credit policy please see the bulletin here.

Please note: Students who are admitted into BU Wheelock routinely participate in field experiences as a part of their respective program curriculum and requirements. Most field sites require criminal background checks to determine students’ eligibility for participation. History of a criminal background may disqualify students from participating in these required experiences, which in turn may impede the successful completion of one’s degree program.
