Reduction of Credits
University graduate credit policy does not allow for a direct transfer of credits toward the Ph.D.; however, the department’s requirement of 39 credit hours of acceptable graduate work for the Ph.D. may be reduced by departmental petition depending on the amount and quality of equivalent graduate work completed at another institution. At minimum, 24 hours of acceptable graduate work must be taken in the Department of Philosophy at KU.
