    What is the most liberal transfer program for a MA in Interdisciplinary Studies program? 15, 18, 21 hours? Anyone have an idea.

    The following is a list of courses I will have completed by the end of this year:

    SPED 500- Exceptional Children
    SPED 660 - Behavior Interventions
    SPED 640 - Advanced Methods for Students with Mild Disablities
    SPED 637 - Assessment of Exceptional Children
    SPED 632 - Educational Procedure for Exceptional Children
    Advanced Classroom Management (2 credit hours)
    Autism & Asperger's Disorder (2 credit hours)
    Inclusion (2 credit hours)
    Learning Disabilities: Practical Information for the Classroom Teacher
    Understanding Aggression: Coping with Aggressive Behavior in the Classroom

    27 Total hours... I would like to put as many as possible toward an MA/MS.


    TEKMAN Semper Fi!

    If I am not mistaken, Mountain State University offers 18 credits in transferring. The institute offers MS/MA in Interdisciplinary Studies. So, check out with the school for more details.

    In most situations, transferring in a maximum of 25% of the credits is the case. Sometimes (as in California) mandated by the accreditors; sometimes local rules or traditions.

    However . . . the reason that I always put a "Bending the Rules" chapter in my Bear's Guide books is as a reminder that rules are often bent. Over the years, many readers wrote with stories of how they benefited from this. One of the most common ways the 'maximum transfer credit' rule is bent is through independent study courses. "We cannot give you credit toward your Master's for your course in invertebrate political science that you took elsewhere, but we suggest you take three units of independent study here, focusing on that topic, and the only requirement will be an oral examination conducted by Professor Smatherfoot over dinner at the Faculty Club."
