Students may receive transfer credit for studies completed at recognized graduate institutions. The work must be comparable to that listed in the catalog of Central Seminary. Grades from transferred courses will not be used in computing the Grade Point Average.
Transfer credits will be applied toward required courses when possible; otherwise, they will be counted toward electives. Transfer work applied to a required course may be evaluated to determine whether additional work is needed to meet in full particular course requirements. For example, one credit of independent study may be needed when a two-credit transfer course is applied to a three-credit required course. No credits from another completed masters degree may be transferred into the Master of Arts in Theology program.
Transfer of credits earned through correspondence or distance education is considered on a class-by-class basis. The applicant or student desiring to transfer credits must submit to the registrar a copy of the course syllabus that includes the course description, objectives, and requirements. The decision to transfer the credits is based on the amount of time the student spends on coursework and the level of the assignments required. As a rule, for a two-credit correspondence course, the student should complete 90 hours of coursework. Assignments should approximate 1,000 pages of reading and 15 pages of written work.
