FAQs

We have sessions starting every five weeks so you can start whenever you are ready.

We do accept transfer credits from other accredited institutions.  We have a very liberal policy and can accept up to 84 transfer credits. Once we receive your official transcripts the program director will complete a degree audit which will indicate how many credits are awarded.

We offer ten sessions per year, so if you take one class per session you will complete thirty credits per year. Our program is structured to allow the student the flexibility to increase or decrease the number of credits taken to meet their lifestyle.

Our program is designed to take those factors into account. When a student encounters a scheduling problem we allow the student to step-out of the program temporarily without penalty.  Once the problem is solved they can re-enter.
We have a beautiful campus in suburban Philadelphia. We offer many opportunities to interact with graduate students and faculty in other programs, such as creative writing and English literature, and we regularly bring in industry professionals to speak to and meet with students.
Students can usually earn up to 6 graduate credits before applying for matriculated status.
Applicants who have completed previous graduate work may, at the time they apply for admission, make a written request to transfer a maximum of two 3-credit courses. To be acceptable in transfer, course(s) may not have been previously applied toward a graduate degree and they must provide a good "match" for Rosemont program requirements. Courses may not have been undertaken more than five years prior to the request for transfer and the student must have earned at least a "B" (3.0). Pass/Fail courses are not eligible for transfer.
Once you are accepted into one of our accelerated degree programs, you will be assigned a personal advisor who will guide you through the process of planning and registering for your courses.
Because students may elect to undertake graduate study on a full-time or part-time basis, the number of semesters required to complete all program requirements will vary. Students who pursue full-time study can usually complete their master's degree in less than two years; part-time students usually take longer. All students are permitted up to six years from the time they matriculate to complete their program requirements (extensions may be requested in writing). Commencement exercises are scheduled each year in May.
