Before the conclusion of the first year of study, master’s students may, with the approval of both departments or degree programs, request a transfer from one master’s program to another within The Graduate School.

  • This request should not be sent to The Graduate School before the student has consulted with the directors of graduate studies of both departments or programs.
  • Approval of a departmental transfer does not extend the time limit for completion of a master’s degree.
  • Any financial aid arrangement in the original master’s program does not transfer to the new program.
