Graduate-Level Transfer Credits and Advanced Standing Status

Applicants who have completed professional doctoral programs may be considered for advanced standing status. Applicants who have attended, but not graduated from, similar graduate or professional programs may receive transfer credit for individual courses but are not considered advanced standing candidates. For transfer consideration, credits must be earned from an institution accredited by a regional accrediting agency that is recognized by the American Council on Education Commission on Recognition of Postsecondary Accreditation or from an institution accredited by the CNME, ACAOM or MEAC. Graduate and professional students must complete at least two-thirds of their credits at Bastyr University. Specific information regarding transfer and advanced standing status policies for the naturopathic medicine program is included here. Specific information regarding transfer policies for AOM programs is included here. Midwifery transfer policies are available under the midwifery master's program.
