Transfer Credit Policy
Students who have recently completed comparable non-degree courses at an accredited two- or four-year college or university with a grade of B or higher may request approval to apply those courses toward the completion of a professional certificate at the Fordham Real Estate Institute. Students are encouraged to seek approval from the program director prior to the start of their first course at Fordham. With prior approval, students may transfer up to two courses toward a six-course professional certificate at the Fordham Real Estate Institute.

Students may enroll in individual courses at the Fordham Real Estate Institute without pursuing a certificate.
