Can credits from another institution be transferred to the MPM degree?
Transfer of graduate credit is at the discretion of the academic department. Request for transfer of credit requires approval from both the department and Penn State Graduate School. You must submit an official graduate transcript along with the course syllabus to Dr. Jeffrey Pinto at [email protected] and to Alice Puzarowski at [email protected]. Read more about the criteria on the Transfer Students page.
What is the format of the online courses in this program?
View the How Online Learning Works page of the website to learn about the format of online courses in the Master's in Project Management.
May I retake the GMAT or GRE if I'm unsatisfied with my score?
Individuals who do not obtain the minimum score needed may retake the GMAT. Please contact the program office at [email protected] if you intend to retake an exam so that we are aware a new score will be sent, and we can ensure adequate time to review it before the application deadline.
Does PMP® certification qualify me for a GMAT waiver?
Having the PMP® certification by itself is not a substitute for the GMAT. Individuals with significant, demonstrable project-based work experience (minimum of 5 years) would constitute grounds for a GMAT waiver.
What will my diploma and transcript actually say?
Your diploma will state that The Pennsylvania State University grants you the Degree of Master of Project Management in recognition of the completion of advanced study in project management. Additionally, your transcript will be a Penn State transcript. Neither the diploma nor the transcript will differentiate the mode (online or otherwise) in which the courses or degree were completed.
