Glendale, AZ Campus Catalog / College of Graduate Studies / Master of Public Health / Coursework Completed in other Midwestern University Professional Programs

Dual-degree students enrolled in the M.P.H. program and a health professional degree program at Midwestern University, or recent (within the past 10 years) Midwestern University alumnus of one of these programs may be awarded up to 18 quarter-credit hours towards the M.P.H. degree for approved courses taken in their professional programs. These courses are preapproved by the M.P.H. Program Director with input from the respective health professional degree program Dean, and courses are identified in the course Catalog to indicate eligibility for elective credit in the M.P.H. program. Dual-degree students enroll in the course designated for their primary professional degree program and are awarded credit for both programs upon successful completion of the course. Transcripts for the M.P.H. program reflect the transfer credit from the primary professional degree program. Typically, dual credit in the M.P.H. program is only considered for coursework in which a minimum letter grade of "B" has been earned. A letter grade lower than “B” is not acceptable for dual-credit consideration.
