Use of Credits from Prior EMU Coursework

EMU recognizes the value of prior graduate degree completion.
Credits earned during completion of a graduate certificate may be applied to a master's or specialist degree if in the same field of study, with the approval of the academic department.
Up to six hours of appropriate credit from a previous graduate degree may be applied to a new master's or specialist degree, with the approval of the academic department. Graduate degrees earned at Eastern Michigan University or another accredited institution may be applied (in part or in total) to a student's doctoral program of study at the discretion of the student's doctoral program adviser.
