3 easy steps to transfer credit
Step 1: Complete the Online Application

Begin the transfer process by completing an online application.

Step 2: Request Your Transcripts

Contact your former school and request that an official transcript be sent to JWMI’s Registrar's Office. It can take two to four weeks for us to receive your transcripts, so you should do it as soon as possible.

Step 3: Wait for Approval

JWMI will review your transcript and contact you as soon as possible (usually within 20 days) with a complete list of approved credits. While you wait, connect with your admissions officer to finalize MBA enrollment.

certifications and licenses

Through your professional or personal work, you may have earned a certification or license that can translate into MBA-level credit. Incoming students who are Chartered Financial Analysts (CFAs), Certified Public Accountants (CPAs) or Certified Management Accountant (CMA) might be eligible for transfer credit for the following JWMI courses: Economics (JW515), Financial Management I (JWI530), and Financial Management II (JWI531). To be considered for credit, students must obtain proof that they are current charter-holders in good standing. JWMI will only accept credits for up to four classes in total. Other eligibility criteria may apply. Please speak with an admissions officer for more information.

The Life Credit Portfolio (LCP) provides qualified students who have relevant professional experience with an affordable alternative to taking the full course.
