- Courses that are online or in hybrid format are subject to careful review.
- Only courses completed with a B or better will be eligible for transfer.
- Prior to matriculation, courses will be considered for core course equivalency (PEMBA only) or otherwise are awarded as general elective credits. Students may transfer no more than 3 courses as core equivalents.
- Transfer credits may not count toward the requirements of a concentration, or toward the requirements of either the HSM or Social Impact program.
- Except under extenuating circumstances, transfer courses taken while enrolled at Questrom will not be eligible if they are equivalent to those offered at Questrom in the Spring or Fall Semester.
- Students interested in taking courses through the University Consortium should refer to the Registrar’s website.
