Academic Advisors

Academic advisors are available to help students begin a graduate program at WashU. Advisors meet with students to discuss the application process and curriculum options that best meet their academic and career goals. Students maintain contact with their academic advisor throughout their program to stay informed about school-wide policies and information needed to successfully complete their degree.

Transfer Credit

A Request for Transfer Credit form, including a course description for each, must be completed by the student and submitted to an academic advisor. A maximum of six units of graduate credit obtained at another accredited institution may be applied toward Construction Management, Cybersecurity Management, Engineering Management, Health Care Operational Excellence, Information Management or Project Management degree offerings. Requested course work must be in addition to any graduate course work taken to complete your undergraduate degree. Transfer credit must be approved by the Program Director. No graduate courses carrying grades lower than “B” can be accepted for transfer toward any graduate degree.
