Maharishi University of Management uses a semester system with academic credits equal to standard semester credits.
MUM will accept as transfer credit toward its bachelor’s degree
programs credit earned at any institutions accredited by any of the U.S.
“regional” accrediting associations (New England, Middle States,
Southern, North Central, Western, or Northwest), or at an international
university of comparable accreditation, or at an international
university that has been specifically approved by the Registrar.
Transfer credit is always evaluated on a course-by-course basis.
Credits applied toward undergraduate major requirements usually depend
upon comparable courses being offered at MUM, though credits earned at
acceptable universities will generally be transferable as elective
credits toward MUM degrees.
Undergraduate degree students can apply to transfer credits to cover
general education requirements, and electives, and up to half the course
work in the major, for a maximum of 70 total credits. Transfer credits
are accepted for courses completed with a grade of “C” or higher.
Total transfer credits accepted from other institutions are posted on
the student’s MUM transcript. Grades earned at other institutions are
not included in calculating a student’s MUM grade point average. MUM
converts transfer credit from quarter-hour institutions using the
formula 1 quarter hour equals ¾ of 1 semester hour.
Students apply to their graduation advisor for evaluation of transfer credit.
Transfer credit may be applied to the distribution requirement.
Transfer credit may be applied to fulfill the writing and mathematics requirements.
Transfer students must apply for a transfer credit evaluation before the end of their first semester.
Mathematics requirements: Students whose transcripts on entry to MUM contain a mathematics course at the level of 100 or above, with a grade of C or above and taught by a mathematics department at an accredited university of college, are deemed to have satisfied MUM's distribution requirement in mathematics. However, transfer credit for mathematics courses equivalent to Math 051, 152, 153, 161, 162, 281, or 282 does NOT satisfy mathematics requirements of those majors that require mathematics, and also CANNOT be applied to satisfy the prerequisite requirements for any course that has a mathematics prerequisite. For major and prerequisite mathematics requirements, the knowledge must be shown to be current on MUM's Mathematics Placement Test.
