Successful Transfer of Credit into the MSLIS program
Graduate students in the iSchool may seek to transfer into their program of study up to six credits from another ALA accredited graduate institution. For those credits to be considered, it is required that they relate to the student’s program of study and be within 7 years of the student’s anticipated graduation from the MSLIS program. It is our experience that few students transfer in credits, because of those requirements. However, we encourage any prospective student who is interested in this option to talk with an admissions counselor about the process.

Students who do not pass the test on their first try are able to retake the test until they receive a passing score or, if available, use the Safety Net provided by the New York State Education Department.
The edTPA assessment was removed from New York State Education Department requirements in April 2022.
