Consideration for transfer credits is program specific. The acceptance of credit earned at Holmes Institute for transfer credit into another institution is up to the discretion of the receiving institution. For consideration of transfer credit by Holmes Institute®, courses must have been taken within a seven-year period of time from the date of submission and submitted within one year of beginning courses. Students must provide a transcript from an accredited university, course syllabus and, if possible, any course work that was submitted to the original faculty. Each course being considered must meet or exceed the outcomes assessments for the requested Holmes Institute course. Holmes Institute does not transfer credits for life experience.

Holmes Institute students may request transfer credits as follows:

  • Master’s in Consciousness Studies – maximum of 6 credits (up to 2 Holmes Institute courses)
  • Certificate in Spiritual Education – maximum of 3 credits (1 Holmes Institute course)

Students must submit a completed Transfer Credit Request Form with all supporting documentation and payment of $150 evaluation fee for all courses submitted on that Transfer Credit Request form. In addition, there will be a $100 fee for every 3 credits approved for transfer.
