Master of Arts Degree Transfer Program
IDEAL FOR UNCOMPLETED BIBLE RELATED MASTER'S DEGREES
The Transfer program allows up to twenty-one (21) approved master's level credits to be transferred into the program making it possible to earn the M.A. in Interdisciplinary Studies with as few as fifteen (15) credits.
Master's level study is a noble endeavor. However, there are times when one has earned credits in a graduate program, but due to circumstances has not completed the degree program requirements.
The M.A. in Interdisciplinary Studies course transfer program offers an ideal degree completion option for just such a situation. This approach provides the potential for transfer of up to 21 approved course credits applied to the M.A. in Interdisciplinary Studies degree study program.*
If the credits are validated, the learner will complete a two (2) credit orientation, and thirteen (13) credits of course work to satisfy the 36 credits required for the M.A. degree.
The process of evaluation is straightforward...
1. Documentation of previously completed Bible-related master's level courses is submitted to the University for evaluation. The evaluation may involve official transcript review or in some cases, the course work completed, and/or the study guides may be required.
From the materials supplied, the Academic Committee will make one of the following determinations:
a. Course work is accepted at full credit;
b. Course work is accepted at full credit with probation;
c. Course work is accepted with partial credit;
d. Course work is not accepted.
2. There is no fee for transcript evaluation. However, there is a $300 fee if study guide, and course work evaluation is required. If the course work is accepted, the $300 Coursework Evaluation Fee will be credited toward the program tuition. If the course work is not accepted, 50% of this fee will be refunded. An Initial Request for Informaiton is used to start the process of determining if study guide and course work evaluation will be required.
3. Upon credit or course acceptance, the student will complete the orientation course, and the remaining courses required for graduation. The number of courses required for completion will be determined by the credits accepted via the evaluation process. The student will select elective courses based upon personal interest, and ministry needs.
*Qualifying courses must meet the University's academic requirements. Qualifying courses may not have been used previoulsy for the awarding of a degree at another institution.
