For applicants transferring from other graduate programs into the MSME program, no more than six (6) graduate semester credit hours may be transferred, and these must be from an accredited MSME program. Any exceptions to this policy must be approved by the MSME Graduate Admissions Committee. A minimum grade of 3.0 must have been achieved in all transfer courses. Credit for courses taken in a graduate program other than mechanical engineering will be reviewed to determine whether they may be substituted within the MSME program. A request for transfer courses to be considered must be made in writing at the time of application to the MSME program and must be accompanied by transcripts, course descriptions, and syllabi for each proposed transfer course. For some transfer courses, the MSME Graduate Admissions Committee may require the applicant to demonstrate proficiency in the subject through interviews with faculty members who have expertise in the subject.
