Up to nine credits of relevant coursework may be transferred into
the MEd. program with the permission of the student’s advisor and the
Graduate College. Courses must be completed within five years and
related to the overall goals of the Leadership Program. This includes
courses taken prior to admission in the Leadership Program either at
another institution, or at UVM (Continuing Ed.). There is the
possibility of transferring an extra six credits if they are at UVM the
immediate preceding semester to matriculation.
Most of our students attend on a part-time basis (one or two courses
per semester), completing their core courses and electives within two

The maximum number of years to complete the MEd is five years.
