Maximum “Transfer” Hours

Posted by Joyce on July 28, 2009

After a few years of queries, I’ve learned definitively that at least 30 new hours must be taken by doctoral students. Why is this important? If you got your master’s from Texas Tech, and perhaps have 36 good hours that plausibly ought to apply to the doctorate, we’re only going to be able to take 30 of those hours. In other words, whether you transfer in to Texas Tech or transfer within Texas Tech, you will take at least 30 new hours of doctoral coursework, and perhaps more, depending on the quality and grades of prior graduate work.
