If I have my official transcript sent directly to the Office of the Registrar will the credit be automatically posted?
No, you must submit a¬† Graduate Request for Transfer Credit¬†¬†form to obtain transfer credit. To obtain pre-approval for future transfer credit or approval for a course taken in the past, please do the following:
Please note that the course numbers and titles listed on the transcript must match those submitted on the completed transfer credit request form. If, after completing the transfer credit form, you take courses that differ in course number and/or title from those originally approved, you must submit another Graduate Request for Transfer Credit form with approval signatures in order to receive transfer credit.
What is the Inter-Institutional Graduate Program Agreement and how is credit applied if I participate?
The Inter-Institutional Graduate Program is a collaborative agreement between Rice University, the University of Texas System, Baylor College of Medicine, and the University of Houston. The program allows a full-time graduate student to enroll in a course at one of the participating schools when the course is not offered at the student‚Äôs own school. The course is then transferred to the student‚Äôs home university.
Rice graduate students should follow the procedure outlined below to receive transfer credit through this program:

To receive Rice equivalent credit, you will need to submit a completed¬† Graduate Request for Transfer Credit¬†¬†form.
