Students who have been awarded a master’s degree from an institutionally accredited institution recognized under the TESU Transfer Credit Policy and Guidelines and wish to earn an additional master’s degree must:

  • Complete an additional number of credits equivalent to two-thirds of the total number of credits required for the additional master’s degree (24 credits in a 36 credit degree, 28 credits in a 42 credit program, etc.) These credits must be earned after the date the most recent degree, regardless of academic level, was conferred.
  • Adhere to any additional degree and transfer credit policies required by the School in which their degree is to be earned.
  • Graduate credits earned previously are transferable and applicable to a TESU graduate degree at the discretion of the dean of the School in which the student is enrolled.
