Course Equivalents

The equivalent courses listed below are examples of what is most often transferred from the partner institution. In determining transfer credits, the MIS program director will work closely with a student to determine the most appropriate use of transfer credits towards the degree requirements. If core equivalent courses were not offered at the student's home institution, or if the student did not take equivalent courses, the equivalent of up to 9 GW credits will be transferred into the MIS program either as major field classes or as electives.
