Course credits with a minimum grade of “C” earned at other accredited seminaries and graduate theological schools are eligible for transfer to the extent that the courses are comparable to Denver Seminary’s stated requirements. Courses must have been completed within the last ten years. All students must take at least one course in New Testament, Old Testament, and theology from Denver Seminary faculty. Transfer hours are limited to a maximum of eight hours in the major or concentration (nine hours in the MA in Counseling program). The final twelve hours of any degree program must be taken in residence at Denver Seminary. No transfer credit may apply to a certificate program. Only transfer credit that applies to a student’s degree program will be accepted.
The following number of semester hours may be transferred:
- A maximum of forty-five hours toward the MDiv degree
- A maximum of thirty hours toward the MA degree (thirty-six hours toward the MA in chaplaincy degree)
When a degree has been conferred at another institution, no more than one-half of the hours applied to that earned degree (not to exceed the maximums noted above) may be transferred to a Denver Seminary degree program.
An official transcript from the institution attended showing satisfactory course completion is required. Transfer hours are not accepted for nondegree students. Questions regarding the transfer of credits should be directed to the Registrar’s Office.
