Transfer Credit

Students who have completed relevant graduate-level studies at another institution with a course grade of B or higher may be eligible for transfer credit. Normally, transfer credits are accepted from schools accredited by the Association of Theological Schools.

For credit to be granted, the student must be admitted to a degree program, and the previous work must be approximately parallel (80% or higher equivalence) to the content of a Western Seminary course.

If you believe you may be eligible for transfer credit, please review transfer credit policy, listed with your degree program description in the current Academic Catalog, and then submit a Transfer Credit Request form. Please note, new students must apply for transfer credit prior to or concurrent with their first semester of enrollment.

Once we receive your request, the Registrar will review your transcript and Western Seminary degree requirements and then respond in writing within approximately eight weeks or less. If you have any questions about your specific request, or would like more information about the process, please contact Assistant Registrar This email address is being protected from spambots.

If, during the course of your education, you would like to enroll at another institution with the purpose of transferring credit to Western Seminary, please submit the Transfer Credit Request form prior to enrolling at the other institution.
