Transfer Credits

A maximum of 30 (which may include a maximum of 14 elective credits) semester hours of transfer credit may be applied to the Psy.D. Program (including any transfer credit applied to the M.A. degrees in Clinical Psychology or Theological Studies). The only exception to this is for those obtaining the terminal M.A. in clinical psychology from Wheaton College, in which case 36 hours may be transferred. Courses with grades lower than B cannot be transferred. Wheaton uses semester credit hours. A quarter hour from other institutions is equivalent to .67 of a semester hour. Where and how the credit is to be specifically applied in transfer will need to be petitioned and negotiated after matriculation. The sole exception to this will be that transfer credits that may affect first semester course enrollment will be negotiated by correspondence with the chair of the Admissions and Academic Requirements Committee before or during orientation. No transfer of credit will be granted for previous graduate practicum or field placement courses. Equivalencies for credit from the Wheaton M.A. are listed on the "Approved Credit Transfers from Wheaton M.A." listing. All transfer of credit requests should be submitted by October 1 of each year.

Program data indicate that the vast majority of students entering the program with a transfer credits complete the Wheaton College Psy.D. program in time slightly longer than those students entering the program with a bachelor's degree only.
