Transfer Students

Graduate credits earned at other regionally accredited institutions may be transferrable to Huntington University's graduate programs. Only graduate courses with a grade of B- (2.67) or above are transferable. Generally, such credits must be no older than 10 years and must represent courses that can reasonably substitute for courses in the Huntington University graduate program. Individual program directors determine the suitability of such courses for transfer credit and may deny transfer credit. Students who have been admitted to the Graduate School who wish to take courses at other graduate institutions must receive prior approval from the director of the Graduate Clinical Mental Health Counseling Program before enrolling in a course to ensure that credits will be transferred. Students will be asked to provide relevant materials for their transfer courses. Students in the clinical mental health counseling program may transfer in a maximum of 12 credit hours. Although credits may transfer, no transfer grades are recorded nor counted in the cumulative grade point average. No transfer credits will be accepted for the credentialing programs.

Licensure Completion Students

Huntington University's graduate clinical mental health counseling program offers assistance to individuals with previously earned masters degrees (in counseling or a closely related discipline) who are seeking Indiana state licensure. This assistance is offered on a limited basis dependent upon the individual's need, course enrollment and supervision availability.
