Degree Requirements

  • Successful completion of 36 credits in either Health or Public Administration of core and elective credits with a G.P.A. of 3.0 or better.

Transfer Credits

Up to six transfer credits may be accepted from an accredited graduate school. The courses must be appropriate to the area of Health or Public Administration. Transfer credit will not be considered unless a grade of B or better was given for the course and the course was taken within five years. In the case of a required course, the content of the course taken at the other institution must match the content of the required course. The student must submit the published bulletin containing an appropriate course description, the course syllabus, a statement about his/her accomplishments in the course and the term paper or project completed. Transfer credits are not automatically granted. Request for transfer credits must be made within the first 30 days in the first semester of attendance at the Rockland Graduate Campus.

Students who are either full or limited matriculants or have conditional status must obtain prior approval from the Program Director to attend course(s) at other universities or at other campuses of Long Island University. Without such prior approval such courses will not be transferable. Permission and transferability for course(s) taken at another university while in residence at the Rockland Graduate Campus may be granted only in exceptional cases.
