Finance courses may not be transferred (the foundation courses may, however, be waived). Students who have completed appropriate courses in previous graduate course work may transfer a maximum of nine semester credit hours as non-finance electives.
The transfer of coursework is based on the following guidelines:
Students who have a degree plan of 36 semester hours or fewer must complete the degree program within five years. Any transferred course to be included in the MS Finance degree may not be more than five years old at the time of graduation from UH. Students who have a degree plan of more than 36 semester hours must complete the degree program within seven years; however, the last 36 semester hours must be completed within the five-year period preceding graduation.
Unless students petition for a leave of absence, they must maintain continuous enrollment during the fall and spring semesters. Students who are out of the program for more than one calendar year will be under the jurisdiction of the catalog in effect at the time of reentry.
Students who fail to maintain continuous enrollment for more than two calendar years must reapply for admission to the program and must meet admission requirements in effect at that time.
Admission is granted for a specific semester. If students wish to postpone enrollment, they must secure approval from the graduate advisor. The first semester in which students, as graduate students, complete graduate-level work that applies toward a degree is the effective semester of admission.
