A maximum of 10 (ten) semester hours of graduate credit from an appropriately accredited, degree-granting institution may be transferred to a graduate degree program at the University
of Central Oklahoma. These 10 hours must carry grades of “B-” or higher, must apply to the student’s UCO program and must appear on a UCO Plan of Study. Courses must be approved by the graduate program advisor and the Dean of the Jackson College of Graduate Studies.
If the courses have been used to satisfy degree requirements at other universities, they cannot count toward degrees at UCO. Only those courses approved by graduate program advisors for credit toward UCO degrees will count toward GPA calculations.
