Transfer Credits & Exemptions
If you've already completed theological studies at a graduate school that is accredited by a nationally-recognized body (i.e., equivalent to the Association of Theological Schools in the United States and Canada), you may be granted transfer credit for that work.
Such credit will be given only for courses considered relevant to Regent’s programs and of equivalent academic standard. Credit will not normally be granted for courses that are not theological in nature or have not been taught from a theological perspective.
The maximum amount of transfer credit varies according to each program:
A minimum grade of B (or a Pass in a Pass/Fail course) is required for courses to be considered for transfer.
Since credits may be defined differently at different institutions, transfer credits from some institutions will be subject to a ratio to make them equal to credits taken at Regent. Transfer credit from non-accredited institutions is not normally given. Under no circumstances will transfer credit be awarded for work or life experience.
If you intend to transfer credits from another institution, you must plan carefully to ensure that you meet the Residency Requirement.
You must direct your transfer credit request to the Registrar.
Appeals for exemptions from program requirements should be directed to the Assistant Registrar.
