Transfer Credit

Requests for advanced standing or transfer credit must be submitted to the registrar with official
transcripts and course descriptions when applying for admission. (See specific degree programs for more information.)

Advanced Standing

Advanced standing is interpreted as those courses brought in at the beginning of the degree program. Life experience does not qualify for advanced standing. (See specific degree programs for more information.)

From Other Graduate Schools

Transfer credit may be granted for approved courses completed at accredited graduate institutions other than AGTS.

Concurrent enrollment in other graduate institutions for the purpose of transferring credits into the
AGTS program must be approved in advance by the AGTS registrar and/or academic dean.

Cumulative transfer credits may not exceed one-half of the M.Div., one-half of the professional M.A., nor up to one-half of the academic M.A. (See Residency Requirement.)

Courses accepted for transfer credit are expected to be equivalent to the course descriptions in the AGTS catalog and to appropriately fit the degree program being pursued.

The minimum grade acceptable is C from accredited schools (B from nonaccredited schools if
approved by the seminary).

From Completed AGTS Degree

Shared credit may be granted for a degree completed at AGTS to be applied toward another degree at the seminary.

• M.A. to M.Div.: Up to 24 of an academic M.A.; up to 30 of the professional M.A.
• M.Div. to M.A.: Up to 24 toward the academic M.A.; up to 30 toward the professional   M.A.

The courses must be applicable toward the degree being pursued to be approved.

Toward M.Div. Equivalency for Doctoral Studies

See M.Div. Equivalency for more information.

Toward Doctor of Ministry

Up to six of the doctoral transfer credits may be accepted from ATS/CHEA accredited institutions or those recognized by an approved foreign accrediting body. Students must have earned a grade of “B” or higher.

Toward Doctor of Missiology and Ph.D. in Intercultural Studies

Up to eight of the doctoral transfer credits may be accepted from ATS/CHEA accredited institutions of those recognized by an approved foreign accrediting body. Students must have earned a grade “B” or higher. If a person holds an earned doctorate in a related field (e.g. Doctor of Ministry), a maximum of 12 credits may be transferred to the Ph.D.

Advanced Standing Limitation

In preparing for graduation, the student must satisfy the residency requirement. The combined total of credits received for transfer credit, advanced standing (if applicable) and credit earned through distance learning courses or directed research cannot exceed the limitations imposed by the residency requirement

Transfer of Credits to Other Institutions

Accredited seminaries and graduate schools normally reciprocate in the transfer of credits that satisfy requirements of their respective degree programs. Students should remember; however, that transfer of credit is always at the discretion of the receiving institution. It is the student’s responsibility to confirm whether or not credits will be accepted by another institution of the student’s choice.
