Transfer of Credit

Students may transfer up to 15 credits to an MS degree. Only 9 of those credits may come from institutions approved by UF. All transfer credits must have been taken in the last seven years before the start of a student’s first term, be graduate level courses, and have been earned with a grade of “B” or better. Grades with a “B-“ or below will not transfer.

The University of Florida does not accept transfer credits for the Veterinary Forensic Sciences Graduate Certificate. However, credits from the graduate certificate or non-degree courses can be transferred toward the master’s degree program, if students earned a grade of “B” or higher in the course and if they are accepted into the program.

To transfer credits, email jhbyrd@ufl.edu with the following information:

  • A copy of the student’s transcript, including the transcript key (usually found on the back)
  • A list of courses to be considered for transfer and the courses they will replace in the veterinary forensic science program
  • A course syllabus for each course to be considered

The Supervisory Committee for the student’s major will make a decision on whether or not it will accept the transfer. Students must ensure their official transcripts are already on file with the Office of Admissions . If it is not, please send it to:
