Dear Ariel: Can I transfer into the MALD?
While Fletcher does not formally accept “transfer” students, students who apply, are admitted, and matriculate at Fletcher may petition to have a certain number of courses taken at another institution accepted for credit. The courses must be relevant to your academic program at Fletcher and transfer credit will not be granted if the courses are part of a degree that has already been completed. Students must submit a petition to the Committee on Student Academic Programs to have these courses accepted for credit once they matriculate at Fletcher. Transfer credit is not an option for MA, LLM, MIB, and PhD candidates. Fletcher will allow a maximum of four courses of transfer credit for our MALD program, only.
