Transferring Credit

Transferring Credit

Upon applying to the program, an applicant may request to transfer up to 6 credits toward fulfillment of the degree requirements. Transferred credits must meet certain criteria:

  1. The credits were completed within five years of enrolling at St. Catherine University.
  2. The credits were earned at a program accredited by the American Library Association.
  3. The credits were awarded a grade of B or better.

The MLIS Department does not award graduate credit for work experience. Additionally, credits from such programs as Credit for Academically Relevant Learning (CARL) or College-Level Examination Program (CLEP) cannot be applied to the MLIS degree.

Note that official transcripts listing the completed course work must be on file in the Office of Graduate Admission or in the Student Records Office. Make sure to submit these as part of the admissions application.
