Undergraduate coursework will not be considered for graduate course credit. Up to 12 semester credit hours of coursework from other universities may be used to transfer credit to the Professional Flex or Professional Online MBA degree program.

    The Full-Time MBA and Professional MBA Evening Cohort programs only allow 6 elective semester credit hours to be transferred into the program.

    Consult the UT Dallas Graduate Catalog for further details. Applications for approval of waivers and transfers may be obtained from and submitted to the JSOM Advising Office.

    Waivers of Core Courses

    Waivers of program core requirements may be granted in recognition of previous coursework completed with a grade of “B” or better within the past six years in a specific business program area. This allows a student to skip a core course in their degree plan and take a higher-level course in the same academic area meeting the core requirement with no reduction in the program credit-hour requirements. Up to 12 hours of coursework from other universities may be used to waive core courses in the Professional MBA Flex and Online programs. The Full-Time MBA and Professional MBA Evening Cohort programs do not allow waivers of program core requirements.
