MLA Transfer Credit

Graduate courses taken before applying to the MLA program will be evaluated upon request at the time of application to the MLA program. Transfer credits may not satisfy the 18-semester-credit core requirement. Up to 6 graduate semester credits may be considered for transfer into the MLA degree program, provided these courses:

  1. Were taken for graduate credit from a regionally accredited institution of higher education
  2. Received a grade of A or B
  3. Are germane to the MLA curriculum
  4. Were not used in acquiring any other degree
  5. Are not outdated in content (usually not older than six years)
  6. Were not earned through correspondence study or independent study

Additionally, a course description from the catalog in effect at the time the course was taken must be on file, and an official transcript sent directly from the granting institution must be received.  Courses taken prior to starting the degree program that were offered through Baker University’s continuing education program may also be requested to apply toward education electives. The total number of transfer credits from another institution, Baker continuing education, or a combination of the two may not exceed 6 credits.
