Additional Information

Transfer Credits

No more than eight semester hours, the equivalent of two Bucknell graduate-level course credits, from other institutions may be credited toward a degree. Graduate students at Bucknell who wish to take special courses at other institutions and apply these credits toward a Bucknell degree must have permission from their advisers and the dean of graduate studies. Only courses with a grade of B or above are acceptable for transfer credit.

Non-degree Applications

Non-degree students wishing to enroll in graduate courses may request an application from the Office of Graduate Studies. Individuals who are admitted as non-degree students and who are later admitted to become candidates for a degree may receive credit for no more than two course credits of graduate work taken previously.
