 Transfer Credit

As an applicant, you may be able to transfer a limited number of graduate-level credits into your program under certain conditions:

  • Courses must be taken within the past five years from a regionally accredited institution or an equivalent international degree
  • Grades in the courses must be B or better
  • Plus, other program specific criteria must be met
  • Transfer credit is not guaranteed and may not be awarded retroactively once you are a student

Requesting to Transfer Credit to Fielding coursework

  1. Read your program’s specific transfer credit policy carefully. The policy details how many units and what type of units may be considered for transfer credits.
  2. Read your program’s course descriptions. You will use them to match your previous course(s) to the relevant Fielding elective courses.  The following Fielding programs offer the possibility of transfer credit:

  3. Take note of the credit units. Some Fielding courses have as many as 10 credit units. This means that you may need to apply multiple previous courses to achieve transfer credit for one Fielding course.
  4. Complete one transfer credit request form per Fielding course, listing the previous courses, credit hours, grade, completion date, and general course content.
  5. Ensure your original transcripts for all courses submitted have been received by Fielding. If your transcripts are from an institution outside of the US, you will need to provide a detailed evaluation.

The Registrar’s Office will notify you by email of transfer credit granted, usually around the time of acceptance.  Applicants to the Clinical Psychology and Media Psychology PhD programs will be notified of transfer credit eligibility during the New Student Orientation.
