Transfer credits are graduate-level courses taken by a student prior to admission into a MS or PhD program. This is the case even if the courses were taken at OSU as a non-degree graduate student, professional degree-seeking student, graduate certificate student, or undergraduate student. Graduate-level courses that were taken while enrolled as an undergraduate student cannot be used in an MS or PhD program of study if they were used to fulfill any requirements for a baccalaureate degree (i.e., the credits must have been taken as elective credits).
To begin the process of transferring graduate credits for use in an MS or PhD program of study submit a Transfer Credit Request to the Graduate School. After the Graduate School has processed this request they will communicate which courses they deem appropriate for transfer. Students must then work with their Fisheries and Wildlife Graduate Committee to determine which of the courses approved by the graduate school are also acceptable for use in the final program of study.
