Credit Transfer Policy

Note that acceptance of transfer credit from one school to another is at the discretion of individual colleges and universities. Some colleges and universities are liberal in their credit transfer policies, offering credit transfer for any appropriate courses taken at institutions with government-recognized accreditation, while others offer no transfer credit. When applying to other colleges and universities, students are advised to study those schools' transfer credit policies.

Undergraduate Programs

Up to 75% of credit-hour requirements may be transferred:
  • 45 credit-hours for Associate Degree Programs
  • 90 credit-hours for Bachelor Degree Programs
Within the maximum allowed credit transfer, any credits based on relevant professional training as defined by American Council on Education are limited to:
  • 15 credit-hours for Associate Degree Programs
  • 30 credit-hours for Bachelor Degree Programs
For all core, major, or required general education courses, transfer credits are only granted when it is clear that the courses being transferred contain equivalent content to the UMT courses; other transfer credits may be applied to elective courses where they are deemed to be of equal educational value. For all academic courses offered for credit transfer consideration, the applicant must have earned a grade of "C" or better at an appropriately accredited institution. The decision to award transfer credit will be made by the Admissions Committee, consisting of Academic Advisor(s) and the Admissions Office.

Graduate Programs

Nearly half of the Master's level course work may be transferred. Transfer credits will be evaluated on a course-by-course basis for its equivalency in course content, education level and scope of work offered at UMT. For all academic courses offered for credit transfer consideration, the applicant must have earned a grade of "B" or better at an appropriately accredited institution. The decision to award transfer credit will be made by the Admissions Committee, consisting of Academic Advisor(s) and the Admissions Office.
