Bible College Transfer Admission Requirements

Transfer students from a Bible College can be admitted into King’s with:

Transferring Credit:

King’s will assess transcripts on a course-by-course basis.  The following are important considerations:

  • Transfer credit is granted only for courses taken at an institution accredited by the Association for Biblical Higher Education.  This list of schools can be found online here.
  • A maximum of 60 credits can be transferred to King’s
  • 50% of major and minor credits must be completed at King’s
  • Courses must be relevant to the student’s program requirements at King’s and may be assigned less credit than that granted by the issuing institution.

Considerations in Course Transfer Assessments:

Below are the considerations for course transfer assessments.

  • Instructor Qualifications:  Instructors must have an advanced degree in the subject being taught.  A Masters degree is expected for introductory courses; a PhD for upper-level courses.
  • Grades:  Only courses with a minimum of 5 (9-point scale) or C+ in the applicant’s concentration will be considered for transfer.  A 4 (9-point scale) or a C- minimum is required for elective course transfers.
  • Core Courses:  Core requirements in theology must be met by King’s core courses or close equivalents.
  • Course Type:  Courses of a professional nature (e.g., missions, counselling, personal development) or restricted denominational nature will not be transferable.
  • Course Credit:  Courses with 3 or 4 credit hours will transfer as 3-credit courses.  Courses with 2 credit hours may be combined to grant credit (4=3 credits).  Where different disciplines are combined, unassigned credits may be granted.
