You can transfer up to 12 credits – a 30% cost savings – toward your degree, through certifications, previous coursework or a combination.
Because the M.S in Information Technology-Management coursework is aligned with industry competencies, you can get credit toward the degree for prior learning. A current (ISC)2 CISSP certification has been evaluated to be equivalent to Information Assurance (ISEC 610), which translates into 4 credit hours toward your degree and $2,680 in tuition savings.
If you have taken graduate-level IT courses, Franklin offers course-for-course credit to satisfy elective and core course requirements. To see if your previous coursework can be used to satisfy degree requirements, you’ll need to submit a transcript as well as a syllabus for the course(s) you’d like to have evaluated for transfer credit.
