  1. Do Engineering Online's master's degree programs accept transfer credits from other institutions?

  • A course that was completed at another regionally accredited US college or university may be considered for transfer to a master's program provided that:

    • The course is classified as a graduate course
    • It was completed while the student was in a graduate or post-baccalaureate classification
    • It was not taken as a part of a previous master's degree program at another institution
    • The grade in the course is "B" (3.00 on a 4.00 scale) or better

    In rare instances, students may be allowed to transfer credits from international institutions. No more than 12 credit hours may be transferred from another institution into a master's degree program at NC State University. Transferring credits is dependent on both the academic department's acknowledgement that the courses are relevant to the degree program, and that department's willingness to incorporate those credits into the student's plan of work.

  1. When it is time for me to graduate, can I participate in the commencement ceremony?

  • Engineering Online strongly encourages graduating students who are able to come to campus to participate in commencement ceremonies. Commencement ceremonies are held at the end of each Fall and Spring semester. Summer graduates may participate in the Fall ceremony. Both NC State University and your academic department will host a commencement ceremony. Graduating students can choose to participate in either (or both) events. As graduation nears, the Graduate School provides all graduating Engineering Online students specific instructions regarding University commencement procedures. Students must review and follow these procedures to participate in the University commencement. Students planning to participate in the ceremony hosted by their academic department should contact their academic department's graduate studies office for guidance.
