Knowledge Area Modules (KAMs) Transfer Credit

 Return to: Transfer of Credit 

The Curriculum and Academic Policy committee of each school or college reviews criteria for accepting transfer credit for KAMs. An example of factors to be considered is the nature of the master’s degree and how it relates to the student’s chosen specialization. Transfer credit for KAMs will be evaluated, approved, and recorded on the student’s transcript for whole KAMs (i.e., in 12-quarter-credit blocks), not for individual components of KAMs. The number and titles of KAMs that are replaced with transfer credits may be determined during the admission process or as a part of the development or revision of the student’s Professional Development Plan and Program of Study form. Transfer credit is not awarded for partially completed KAMs.
