Degree Partnerships

Credit Transfers to Accredited Institutions

Students who wish to transfer FAES academic credits to other institutions in the U.S. or worldwide should not assume that courses taken at FAES will be automatically accepted in transfer, although FAES courses may be accepted in transfer by U.S. colleges or universities. Students who wish to work for an undergraduate, graduate, or higher degree should consult, in advance, with the institution from which they expect to receive their future degree, and, if applicable, receive approval for any courses at FAES at NIH that they plan to use toward their degree.
