    Can anyone think of doctoral programs in education (any letters- not important) that accept transfer credit?

    The path I'm looking at would be one that uses VESI and Annenberg EDU credit in some way. Just musing of course....

    EDIT to add that I did look at University of the Cumberlands, but I am a bit confused by their wording regarding transfer credit earned after the masters. I can't figure out if they mean "after" in terms of "this is the next step after your master's" or if they mean "after" in terms of "the calendar according to when your master's was conferred" or "after" in terms of level - being "after" 600 - which all of their courses seem to be.....

    I'd be surprised if there's any transfer credit at the doctoral level.

    Really, Ted? All I did is Google "Transfer credit at doctoral level" and I got PAGES of rules, recommendations etc. from all kinds of legit schools. Here's a sample:

    Here's a sample specifically on transfer credit for Doctorates in Education from Indiana U.:

    Transfer of Graduate Credit: Policies for All Graduate Students: Graduate Student Portal: Student Portal : School of Education: Indiana University

    Again, Googling "Transfer credit for Doctorate in Education" brought up many pages from well-known, reliable schools.

    It's not Rocket Science. Ask Kim Jong-Un! :smile:

    At many institutions the master degree is not necessary to be admitted into a doctorate. Thus having any relevant graduate courses will make ones phd journey much lighter.

    It means you can potentially transfer up to 18 semester-hours of any postgraduate credit that wasn't used for your first Master's degree. So since you have one, any other postgraduate credit you did or will earn could potentially transfer. Whether that includes VESI and Annenberg EDU credit is something you'll have to ask them, but hey, they're friendly.

    I would 100% love to see you in this program!

    Well, I have some random PSY and BIO grad credit from HES, but the VESI and Annenberg credit (all EDU) are so dang affordable, that I'm considering that as a project in 2018. But, being the perpetual planner, I would hate to have them and be unable to use them anywhere.... not that a master's is out of the question (Amberton's would be fine) but...well...the idea of another masters that ISN'T from Harvard isn't on my bucket list.

    On second thought...if you and Matt let me copy off your papers, I might consider it. :wiggle:
