MS in Speech-Language Pathology Transfer of Credit

In order for a student to receive transfer credit of graduate courses, courses taken previously must be equivalent to those described in the HPD Catalog, must have been completed within five years prior to admission, and cannot have been used toward a prior degree.  Approval of transfer credit will be granted only after the student has submitted a written request for consideration with the program director or his or her designee. The student must provide a catalog course description and a course syllabus for each course. Only courses completed at the graduate level and from regionally accredited universities or colleges, or their foreign equivalents, will be considered for transfer credit into the master’s degree program. No more than nine semester hours of credit may be transferred into the MS-SLP. In order to be considered for transfer credit, a grade of 3.0 or better must have been recorded on the student's transcript for each course.  No clinical course credits will be transferred.

Credits earned at Nova Southeastern University are transferable only at the discretion of the receiving school. Students who wish to transfer credit are advised to contact the admissions office of the receiving school for information.

Students holding a terminal degree in audiology who are seeking a master’s degree in speech-language pathology for dual licensure or certification may exceed the maximum number of transfer credits upon approval by the program.
