Transfer credits may be granted by the director of the MSITM graduate program when a student has earned grades of B or better in graduate courses substantially similar in content and equivalent in number of credit hours to those offered by St. Ambrose. These graduate courses must have been completed within the last five years in order to be considered.

Students may be required to secure additional documentation such as course descriptions or syllabi used, where necessary. Transfer credit grades are not included in the MSITM grade point average.
