  • Up to 6 credits may be transferred from an Accredited MS in Construction management program (subject to the REI Director’s approval), reducing the number of credits needed to graduate
  • Up to 9 additional credits may be waived if the coursework matches exactly with our MSCM. However, this will not reduce the number of credits needed to graduate. Students may elect to take different MSCM courses in their place, but the total number of credits needed to graduate will not be reduced. All transfers are subject to approval.
