Only graduate-level (5000-7999) work with a grade of “B” or better is eligible for transfer of credit. A maximum of 15 transfer credits is allowed. These can include no more than 9 credits from institutions approved by the University of Florida, with the balance obtained from post-baccalaureate work at UF. Transfer credits apply toward the degree requirements, but grades earned do not factor into the student’s grade point average in the Master of Sport Management program.
Acceptance of transfer of credit requires approval of the student’s supervisory committee and the Dean of the UF Graduate School. The supervisory committee is responsible for using established criteria to ensure the academic integrity of coursework before accepting graduate transfer credits. Transfer of credit requests for a master’s degree must be made during the student’s first term of enrollment in the Graduate School to ensure a complete transfer.
