In general, students entering a master's level program in the School of Theology and Religious Studies may transfer up to six credit hours from courses taken at other institutions toward completion of their degree requirements. Students entering into doctoral studies may transfer up to 24 credit hours from courses taken at other institutions toward completion of their degree programs. The University requires that such courses be relevant to the degree program requirements, and that the courses be taken at institutions with accreditation from regional associations. Ordinarily, courses taken as part of a previously completed degree program will not be accepted for transfer.
Individual degree programs within the School of Theology and Religious Studies may have different policies, and all transfer courses must be approved by the director of the student's academic area, so prospective students are encouraged to consult with the area director to find out whether or not their proposed transfer courses will be approved.
