POLICY REGARDING TRANSFER OF CREDIT
Grace accepts credit on the basis of our semester hour standard. In accepting credits from schools using the
quarter system, the following procedure is employed: one quarter hour equals two thirds of a semester hour.
Credit from Regionally Accredited Schools
All credit for courses that satisfactorily meet the institutional requirements (grade of "C-" or above) are
transferable to Grace, provided the completed courses are comparable to courses currently offered at Grace.
In cases where more than 90 hours of work is being transferred, a minimum of 60 hours is required in
residency at Grace before a degree can be granted.
Credit from State Accredited or Non-Accredited College, Bible Institutes, and Bible College
A maximum of 60 hours of credit is acceptable from schools in this category. These 60 hours of credit are
accepted on the same basis as those from an accredited institution.
A maximum of 30 hours of Bible and 30 hours of non-Bible credit is acceptable from Bible colleges and Bible
institutes in this category.
Credit Transferred that is less in Credit Hours than the Equivalent at Grace
• The Admissions Office, the Registrar's Office, and the Academic Dean's Office are the only offices
on campus that evaluate transcripts from other institutions for the purpose of granting credit.
• These offices grant credit for course work transferred based on course titles. If more in-depth
evaluation of content is needed, departments are contacted or the transfer student is asked to produce
a catalog and/or course description describing the course content.
• For any of Grace's General Education courses and their respective credit-hour value, the office
accepts a course of one hour less in credit as fulfilling the course requirements at Grace. (e.g., if the
course at Grace is 4 semester hours but the student took an equivalent course of only 3 semester hours
credit at another school, G
