I know the program I went to, basically no credits would transfer anywhere after the first semester, which was all the basics. It really depends on your program, and the program you’re looking to go into- if you can get ahold of course descriptions and compare, it may help you get some ideas about which courses may transfer.

I am not too sure if I would transfer at this point.  I am an FSU grad and Tallahassee is a very different place from Miami, not sure I would move there again. Mind you, I loved Tally as an undergrad but as a Grad student I would not be able to cope there. There really is not much going on and it is not near any ‘cities’.  Mostly things in Tally are geared towards undergrads to be honest.As of UCF, I personally think Orlando is hell on Earth… but to each their own.

I have heard of people transferring graduate schools, but usually something like they entered a program for a PhD during which one would acquire the Master’s on the way, and then they transfer after the Master’s portion to get the actual PhD elsewhere. I think in your case it would be best to just call the schools and ask them; it can’t hurt. Also, I would imagine you’d need to have a really good, explainable reason for transferring.

I would call the director of the program and ask what they think about it.

 @WifeofBath: I went to FSU for undergrad and grad school. I agree that it’s not a huge city with tons to do, but for a good education that wouldn’t stop me from going and living there for a few years. I really enjoyed all of my time up there, especially during grad school.

I agree with @artbee:.  Talk with the directors of both programs.  You want to make sure that you getting an “apples to apples” comparison of both programs.  Look at what your goals would be post-master’s and see which program best achieves those goals.  Because a Master’s is usually 18 months-2 ys (full-time), I wouldn’t switch after the first semester.  Some Master’s programs only admit in fall, but I don’t know if that applies to transferring.
