Evaluation of International Notes

Metropolitan International University evaluates and accepts the transfer of credits based on the philosophy that students will not be required to repeat courses in which competencies are already mastered. The credits to be transferred must be official, the transfer credit (s) for the use of an unofficial transcript will not be valid until it becomes an official transcript and is received by MIU.

An official transcript is sent directly to the Registrar’s MIU of the issuing educational institution. The Issuing Institution must be accredited by an agency recognized by the United States Secretariat of Education or the Council for the Accreditation of Higher Education (CHEA), or its equivalent abroad.

Metropolitan International University receives credit transfer on a course-by-course basis, for courses with equivalent content and value matched to the corresponding MIU course (s). After the evaluation has been successfully completed, an Evaluation Representative will prepare a personalized curriculum of the remaining courses that are necessary for graduation, known as the Degree Plan, based on the documents received at the time of the evaluation .

Academic Requirements for Transfers

A future student can use:

  • The credit transfer must come from an institution accredited by an agency recognized by the United States Secretariat of Education or the Council for the Accreditation of Higher Education (CHEA), or its foreign equivalent.
  • Transcripts must be in English. Transcripts that come from Foreign Relations will require an equivalence evaluation before the evaluation in the MIU.
  • Transfer Applicants who wish to complete their program in English and whose mother tongue is not English; and who have not earned a degree from a duly accredited institution where English is not the primary language of instruction, they must demonstrate mastery of the university level in English.
  • Averages of “C” or better will be accepted for undergraduate level courses.
  • Averages of “C” or better will be accepted for postgraduate courses.
  • Courses to be transferred must have been completed within the last ten (10) years.

  • A maximum of 60 credit hours can be applied to the MIU program, for studies of two years or more at an accredited university.
  • A maximum of 9 credit hours can be applied to a MIU master’s program.
