Transfer Credit Policy

TRANSFER CREDIT POLICY

MI evaluates applicable transfer credits any time a student submits official post-secondary transcripts. Courses accepted for transfer credit must be relevant to the program of study and equivalent in both content and degree level. Transfer credit decisions are made by qualified subject matter professors with the approval of the academic vice president.

MAXIMUM ALLOWABLE TRANSFER CREDITS

MI may award a maximum of 50 percent of the credits required for the Master of Arts degree program through transfer credit, which is thus limited to fifteen semester hours.

SOURCES OF ACADEMIC CREDIT

At MI’s sole discretion, MI only accepts transfer academic credit from institutions accredited by agencies recognized by the US Secretary of Education and/or the Council for Higher Education Accreditation (CHEA). For prior academic credit to be eligible for transfer at the master’s degree or certificate level, grades earned must be a B minus or higher.

Transcripts that are not in English must be evaluated by an appropriate third party, and translated into English or evaluated by a trained transcript evaluator, fluent in the language on the transcript. All translated materials must be official, with payment for such services to be paid by the applicant.

TRANSFER CREDIT DECISION APPEAL

Students may appeal transfer credit decisions by submitting the Transfer Credit Decision Appeal Form to the Office of the Registrar, which escalates the appeal to a second academic authority for consideration. Appeals may be submitted to provost@mises.org.

TRANSFERRING CREDITS TO ANOTHER INSTITUTION

Almost all institutions of higher learning, including MI, restrict the acceptance of credits from other colleges and universities. It is, therefore, highly recommended that you seek prior approval of your MI credits if you want to transfer them later, or if you anticipate using them for credentialing, reimbursement, additional graduate studies, or any other purposes.
