How it Works
- Enroll in any edX MicroMasters program and earn at least a B on all courses in the program.
- Apply to RIT before you’ve finished your MicroMasters program to get connected with an advisor.
- Once accepted*, you will be awarded up to 9 credits for your MicroMasters program credential toward the Professional Studies master’s degree. Credits may vary by program.**
MicroMasters programs provide ambitious learners with a flexible path to a master’s degree and help them gain deep knowledge applicable to their careers along the way. These rigorous programs allow learners to experience graduate-level coursework from top universities without filling out an application, taking a standardized test, or committing to a full master’s degree program. After completing and passing a MicroMasters program, learners can apply to a full master’s degree in an associated university program.
