Transfer Credit Policy:

  • The program will accept up to 30 credit hours of previous graduate work
  • The Director of Graduate Training and/or Director of Clinical Training must approve all transfer credit. Transfer credit is given only for course work with a grade of B or higher at the graduate level from regionally accredited institutions.
  • Transfer credit is given only for courses that are equivalent in sophistication and content/skills to courses at Spalding University.
  • Transfer credit may not be awarded for an equivalent course if, in the judgment of the evaluator, the course was taken too long ago to be of current value.
  • Transfer credit may be denied, if in the judgment of the evaluator, the course would not be acceptable to state boards of psychology.
  • Ordinarily, credit is given for course work taken in psychology programs. However, credit may be given for work in closely related programs provided the above criteria are met.
  • Students coming from MA programs in clinical psychology have typically earned enough transfer credits to reduce their program time by a full year.  All course credit transfers are evaluated on a case-by-case basis.
