Transfer of Credit

Prospective students requesting transfer of credit earned from previous training at another postsecondary institution should apply during the admissions process. Credit transfer will be evaluated on an individual course basis. If a credit transfer request is successful, students will be credited the tuition amount for course(s) transferred. For credit to be considered, the credit must be earned from an institution accredited by an agency recognized by the United States Department of Education (USDE) or the Council for Higher Education Accreditation (CHEA). CALIMT does not accept credit earned through challenge examinations, achievement tests, experiential learning or for courses completed in the military, in the workplace, through apprenticeships or training programs.

Courses requested for transfer credit must have been completed within the previous five years. Transfer credit toward the MBA program at CALIMT may be awarded only for master-level courses completed by the student at other institutions if such courses meet the standards of CALIMT and the requirements of the MBA program. Only courses comparable in content to those offered by CALIMT will be eligible for transfer credit. To receive credit, students must have earned a grade of “B” or higher. Official transcripts as well as a course description from the school catalog, or a syllabus for each course considered for credit must be provided to the Program Chair. Transcripts from non-U.S. institutions must be evaluated by an appropriate third party and translated into English. CALIMT reserves the right to request additional course documentation as needed to complete a thorough evaluation. The maximum allowable transfer credit that can be awarded is 20% of the total credits required to complete the degree.
