Petition to Transfer Credit
For a graduate program of 30 credit hours (such as the MEd

Petition to Transfer Credit form
You may download a copy of the Petition to Transfer Credit
form from the Graduate College.
Transfer of credits is not an automatic process. Requests
are reviewed carefully by the program coordinator, the department chair, and
the Graduate College.
What to include with your petition
Transfers of credit may be used as substitutes for the core
courses in this program (Educational Research, Curriculum, Foundations) if they
were taken as part of a completed master’s degree and are approved by the
specific department. Please supply a course syllabus and official transcripts
where the course is listed along with your petition.
Only six hours of Northern Arizona University core courses
from a completed master’s degree may be used without time limit.
Transferring ASSET courses
Due to the strict standards and procedures that need to be
met to earn national recognition through NCATE/ISTE, students admitted into the
program from fall 2007 on will not be able to transfer any courses to
substitute Educational Technology.
