Additional Information

Thesis Option

A thesis option is available. Students interested in this option should contact both the faculty member who the student wants to serve as the thesis advisor, and the Graduate Advisor in the College of Business, before completing 12 hours of graduate study. If selected, the student will register for the IS 699 Masters Thesis course for 6 credit hours in lieu of 6 credit hours of electives.

Transfer Credit

In accordance with the Graduate School transfer policy, students may transfer up to twelve (12) semester hours of acceptable graduate credit earned in an approved institution and may count it toward a master's degree. No transferred credit may be more than ten years old at the time of a student's graduation from UAH. Such credit may be transferred with the approval of the major department if completed with a grade of B or better.

The College of Business will only review business discipline course(s) for transfer credit if the institution is accredited by AACSB International. The department chair may, at their discretion, approve or reject the proposed course credit transfer. Also, coursework taken through the Defense Acquisition University (DAU) that has been evaluated to be worth graduate level credit can be considered.

Inquiries about the transferability of specific courses should be directed to the Graduate Advisor, who will consult with the department chair to determine whether the course will be accepted for transfer credit. 
In some circumstances, a student may need to take a graduate course at another institution while enrolled in a UAH degree program. The transfer of such credit back to UAH must be approved by the department and by the graduate dean prior to the student enrolling at the other institution.
