  2. Previously taken courses that are exempted by the registered program should have “B" as the minimum grade and should be taken within five academic years preceding the semester of the graduate program registration in EMU.
  3. Total credits of exempted courses transferred to the registered program can only be equivalent to half of the credits necessary to complete the program (For example, if the program consists 7 courses, exemption can be given to at most 3 courses).
