Transfer Credit, Dual Credit, and Course Waivers

Students seeking to transfer a course from another university, have a course credited to more than one Rutgers degree program, or waive a course requirement should read the following information carefully.

Transfer Credit

A Mathematical Finance master's degree student can apply to transfer up to 12 credits for graduate courses completed at another university, with a grade of B or better, provided they replace equivalent courses in the Mathematical Finance program, and credit for such courses was not used to earn a previous undergraduate degree. Acceptance for credit towards the Mathematical Finance degree is subject to approval by the Mathematical Finance Program Director and is not automatic.Please complete the Graduate School-New Brunswick Transfer Credit Form (pdf) and consult their general rules for transfer of credit, as well as the rules for transfer of credit for doctoral candidates for full details.

Students may request that courses they wish to transfer be evaluated by the Mathematical Finance Program Director after they have registered for at least one course in our program by submitting the following to the Mathematical Finance Program Assistant:
- A completed Transfer Credit Form with
- A detailed syllabus and primary textbook information for each course to be evaluated.
It is not necessary to wait until 12 credits have been completed in our program before requesting a transfer credit evaluation.

Dual Credit

A student who has completed Mathematical Finance program courses at Rutgers while a candidate for a second Rutgers graduate degree or while a non-degree graduate student, may apply to count up to 12 credits for those graduate courses completed in the second degree program or as a non-degree student, with a grade B or higher, towards the Mathematical Finance degree. Acceptance is subject to approval by the Mathematical Finance Program Director and is not automatic and, in the case of courses completed while a non-degree student, only considered after the student has completed an additional 12 credits as a Mathematical Finance degree candidate.
