Transfer Credits

Transfer in Previous College Credits

It is our goal to transfer in as many previous credits possible for every student in accordance with the Luther Rice Transfer Credit policy.  Transfer credits are evaluated on an individual basis for each applicant.

Students enrolling in bachelor’s or master’s programs may transfer comparable work  (academic and theological) of the same degree level for which they received a grade of “C” or better from an institution with accreditation recognized by the Council of Higher Education Accreditation (CHEA) or the U.S. Department of Education. 

Luther Rice may also recognize transferable credits from non-accredited institutions based on an evaluation of their academic catalog, faculty credentials, course offerings, and degree requirements. 


Maximum number of transfer credits possible in each degree program:

hhhh Bachelor of Arts          90 hours 
  Master of Arts     6 hours
  Master of Divinity   45 hours
  Doctor of Ministry    0  hours


Transcripts are evaluated under guidelines agreed upon by the Vice President for Academic Affairs.  Life experience, CEU’s, remedial courses, workshops, and seminars are not transferable.  Luther Rice does not currently maintain articulation agreements with any other institutions.
