Prerequisites for Admission

There are no prerequisites required for admission to the program. There will be a course required prior to the start of the program in order to provide foundational knowledge and enhance the learning experience. After you start the program, additional foundational coursework may be required as you advance.

Course Transfer and Waiver Policy

We do not accept transfer credits for our online programs, however we do allow for course waivers, which are intended to let students avoid redundant study of subjects already mastered. Waivers do not reduce the number of credits required to earn the degree. In our online programs, no more than three credits can be waived across the graduate certificate, advanced graduate certificate and degree.

This policy applies to courses that will be taken for fulfilling requirements to complete the graduate certificate, advanced graduate certificate and degree. This policy does not apply to foundations courses which have their own waiver policies.
