I started my Master degree at the Colorado University of Denver on Spring 2008; after taking 3 classes there, I applied to continue my studies at the University of Colorado at Boulder. I was accepted into the Masters program, and transferred 9 credit hours that I earned from the previous institution. I began my work at Boulder in Spring 2009, and since that time I have taken all necessary classes to complete with the program, up to this current semester where I am taking my last two classes.
Three weeks ago, I got an email about the graduation application deadline, filling out all applications in order to be able to graduate this spring. However, one week later, I received another e-mail informing me that the grade of one of the classes (B-) is not acceptable as a transfer credit, something which not made aware to me until today; this places me at risk to not graduate in the spring.
I am writing this letter in order to formally petition to be allowed to transfer the credit of Information Theory EE5220 Class from the University of Colorado at Denver, which I already passed with a B-. While I have worked very hard and have very concrete plans about my future after my work at this university, I need to have that credit count towards my requirements in order to graduate; if this credit can be counted, I will be able to graduate in the spring and carry on with the beginning of my career.
One of the main reasons I am requesting to graduate so soon is the fact that, once I finish my Master’s degree, I have a very good chance at getting a fantastic job that will enable me to start a long a fruitful career in my field – however, it is out of state, and I need to be available to start work as soon as possible, lest the opportunity be taken away and given to someone else. As the head of a family and a father, it is imperative for me to be able to provide the support my family needs.
I beg you to exercise incredible generosity in allowing that credit to transfer over to my work here, giving me the ability to graduate in the spring. This act would allow me to embark on a great start to a career I am very passionate about, thanks in no small part to the efforts of this school and its staff.
