Graduate work done in other institutions will not be accepted towards fulfilling the requirements for the master's degree or the licentiate. Graduate work done in other institutions of approved standing, and not used to fulfill the requirements for the doctoral degree elsewhere, may be offered in partial fulfillment of the requirements for the doctoral degree in the School of Philosophy provided this work is approved by the dean.
At least four semesters of full-time graduate work toward the doctoral degree must be done in residence at The Catholic University of America. One of these years must be the last year.
A candidate for the doctoral degree who applies for credit for graduate work done at other institutions may be granted such credit as, in the judgment of the dean, is deemed suitable. Judgment will be passed only after the student has studied at The Catholic University of America for a time sufficient to give adequate opportunity to evaluate the student's grasp of the subject taken elsewhere.
