IDEAL FOR UNCOMPLETED BIBLE RELATED DOCTORATES
The D.P.Th. Transfer program allows up to twenty-one (21) approved doctoral credits to be transferred into the program making it possible to earn the D.P.Th. with as few as eleven (11) credits.
Doctoral study is a highly academic, scholastic endeavor. There are times when one has earned credits in doctoral study, but due to circumstances has not completed the degree program requirements.
The Doctor of Practical Theology 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 Doctor of Practical Theology degree study program.*
If the credits are validated, the learner will complete a two (2) credit orientation, and nine (9) credits of course work to satisfy the 32 credits required for the Degree.
The process of evaluation is straightforward...
1. Documentation of previously completed Bible-related doctoral 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 FREE Personalized Evaluation is used to determine 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 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.
