Do I need to have my transcript evaluated?
If your degree is from a foreign university, it must be evaluated by an accredited service. CSU uses the following services for this purpose: World Education Services, Inc. and Josef Silny & Associates, Inc.
How long does it take to finish the Masters Degree?
All work credited towards a graduate degree must be completed within seven years. The maximum course load for any graduate student in a semester is 12 hours, so a student could complete the degree in a minimum of three semesters. However, the typical and recommended load for a fulltime graduate student is nine hours in a semester, but our online programs usually require 9-12 hours per semester. Back to Top
I have a degree from a foreign university. Any problems?
Undergraduate degrees must be 4 years in length to be considered the equivalent of a bachelor's degree. Check with the CSU admissions office for transcript evaluation instructions.
In regards to my professional background and certifications, will I be allowed to transfer credits, if yes how many?
We will accept for transfer a maximum of nine (9) credits of graduate level coursework from accredited universities. We do not accept credit for certification courses. The transfer has to be approved by a graduate student advisor in the department.
Is the CSU program a part-time or full-time program?
