Once admitted into the MA in Labor Studies, students may transfer from 3 to 12 academic credits from previous graduate programs into the degree, provided that the courses were completed with a grade of B or higher within five years of the time of application and are equivalent to comparable courses in the program.
Newly-enrolled students should work with their academic advisor in the first semester to complete the transferal process. Students applying to transfer credits must provide a course description and syllabus. The Department Chair of Labor Studies will review these materials and evaluate transfer credits for their equivalence to specific courses and consistency with program learning objectives, standards, and norms.
Exceptions to these requirements may be considered under special circumstances, but students must present authoritative evidence of sufficient and current competence in the learning objectives of the courses whose credits the student wishes to transfer.
Prospective students wishing to discuss previous graduate credits and transfer eligibility should contact Irene Garcia-Mathes, Academic Advisor for the MA in Labor Studies, at Irene.Garcia-Mathes@slu.cuny.edu.
