Students who are accepted for an accelerated 4+1 program may apply or transfer a maximum of 12 graduate credit hours taken while an undergraduate provided a grade of B or higher is earned in the course. No additional graduate credit hours taken as an undergraduate may be applied or transferred to the graduate record.
