Transfer Policy

The CBU ATP does not accept transfer courses from other institutions to be substituted for courses required in the ATP. Transcripts will be used to ascertain prerequisite courses required for admission into the program. These courses are not counted in the number of units required to complete the Master of Science degree. Due to the rigorous standards (competencies and proficiencies) set by the national accreditation agency (the CAATE), the short two year degree completion time, and integrity of the program design, it is important that students complete all required courses at CBU.
