Am I eligible for course waivers/transfers for the Online MBA?

You may be eligible for Online MBA course waivers if you took courses that were used to satisfy another degree or you have reached the 6 credits transfer allowance. Waived courses do not reduce the credit requirement to fulfill your MBA.

Transfers: will reduce the number of credits required to complete your Isenberg MBA degree
Waivers: do not reduce the credit requirement to fulfill your MBA

Classes that are eligible for waivers must meet these criteria:

  • A graduate level course
  • Taken at an accredited institution
  • The course curriculum mirrors an Isenberg core course
  • You earned a grade of "B" or better
  • The course was taken within three years of acceptance into the Isenberg program

In order for courses to be considered, please send us a description, a syllabus, and an official transcript for each course. Please be specific about which Isenberg course you are requesting to have reviewed.
We prefer to receive these requests via email, grad@isenberg.umass.edu, but we also accept them by fax: (413) 577-2234 or mail to:
