Transfer Policies

  • Up to 6 credits may be transferred from an accredited MS in Hospitality program (subject to the director’s approval).
  • Up to 9 additional credits may be waived if the coursework matches exactly with our MSH.  However, this will not reduce the number of credits needed to graduate. Students may elect to take different MSH courses in their place, but the total number of credits needed to graduate will not be reduced. All transfers are subject to approval.
  • Non-Matriculated Option: If you wish to apply as a non-matriculated student, simply check off "non-degree" on the MSH application. You may take up to 6 graduate credits as a non-matriculated student.
