Transfer of Credit Policy
Students transferring from other colleges or universities will follow the admissions checklist and in addition:
- Arrange for all official college/university transcripts to be sent to Trinity Bible College. Students with college credit earned elsewhere will be classified as transfer students. Up to 95 semester credits may be transferred into a Bachelor of Arts degree program at Trinity. Up to 30 semester credits may be transferred into an Associate of Arts program at Trinity.
- Grades of “C” or better will be considered for transfer credit, and courses must be similar to those taught at Trinity in order to be accepted in transfer.
- Students transferring from a non-accredited institution may transfer a limited number of credits. Such credits will be transferred after students have successfully completed one academic year with a cumulative GPA of 2.00 or higher. Students meeting the GPA criteria will have credits approved for transfer and the credits will be placed on the academic transcript at that time. Students failing to meet the GPA criteria after the year-long grace period will no longer be eligible to receive those credits in transfer and they will then need to take those courses at Trinity.
For any students who have attended Trinity, an academic transcript of credit may be obtained from the Academic Records office. A Transcript Request form is available and must be accompanied by a hand written signature in order to be processed. Requests normally take three to five working days for processing. However, the processing time can take up to three weeks during periods of peak activity (registration, graduation, final exams, etc.).
Students will not be issued official transcripts if they have outstanding bills with any office of the college or if student loans are in default. Official transcripts will not be issued via fax or email. Questions may be directed to the Academic Records office via phone at 701-349-5796 or email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
