Can I transfer credits from another program or institution to count toward my master of science in anatomy degree?
A maximum of 10 semester hours may be transferred from another accredited (or equivalent) institution, pending the review and approval of the College of Osteopathic Medicine graduate faculty. Grades earned on transferred courses must be equivalent to B or better. The request to transfer credit must be submitted in writing to the director of the Anatomy program.
