Transferring

POLICY FOR TRANSFERRING INTO THE MFA PROGRAM
The policy regarding students who wish to transfer into the MFA, whether currently enrolled at BSU or elsewhere, will be to accept up to three courses upon approval of both the advisor and program director. No writing workshops will count for transfer credit.

Those who are already accepted and enrolled in the MA in English at Boise State University and are in good standing who wish to transfer into the MFA in Creative Writing program will be required to write a letter of intent and to provide an appropriate manuscript for consideration.
