Transfer of Credit
An official determination of transfer credit will be considered after the student has been accepted into a degree program at Redeemer. After a student registers, requests for transfer credit should be reviewed with the Registrar’s Office. Approval for transfers must be secured from faculty department heads.
The transfer credit granted will reduce accordingly the number of hours required at Redeemer. If the student has not received a Master’s degree from another institution, to obtain an M.Div. degree the student must take at least 40 credit hours of study at Redeemer. The Greek, Hebrew, English Bible Survey, and Advanced Theological Writing courses may not be included in these 40 credit hours.
Ordinarily, the Seminary may accept up to one-half of credits earned for a first theological degree awarded by another institution toward a degree at Redeemer, not to exceed one-half of the credits required for the degree at Redeemer. In the case of the M.Div. program, at least 46 credit hours of study at Redeemer will be required and at least 28 credit hours for the M.A.R. or M.A. program. In all the cases cited above, the credits required at Redeemer will normally include the final 24 hours of study.
Only courses in which a grade of C- or above was received will be considered for transfer credit to an M.Div., M.A.R., or M.A. degree program. Only courses in which a grade of B or above was received will be considered for transfer credit to a Th.M. or Ph.D. degree program.
Upon approval by the Registrar, credit earned for course work completed at The Christian Counseling & Educational Foundation is transferable to the M.Div., M.A.R., or M.A. programs. Normally, up to two courses may be transferred without tuition payment. Students may request approval for two additional courses to be transferred. Full Redeemer tuition is required for these additional courses. No more than four courses will be taken as transfer credit. For any coursework to be considered for transfer from CCEF, the courses must be completed (including having been graded) prior to beginning any coursework at Redeemer.
