    Online Masters: Who accepts the most transfer credits?

    I have 30 graduate level credits from a regionally accredited university that is on the other side of the country (I recently moved)!

    Which online graduate program accepts the most transfer credits? I haven't been able to find any that take more than 9 transfer credits.

    My credits are all in Education and Instruction (I'm a teacher ), but my final earned Masters could be Interdisciplinary or anything else.

    Oh, and the school has to be RA.

    Thanks!

    Try to get Original University to let you take the rest of the credits you'd need towards their degree from another school on a letter of permission, from themselves by distance or through customized reading courses or practica, etc.

    This is excellent advice! I did the first 30 credits for my Master's at my home institution, then the final six somewhere else (where I was working and courses were therefore free) for transfer back there to finish up. I cleared it ahead of time, and it was fine with them, they just wanted to compare syllabi to ensure the courses were comparable.
