In order to prevent any unnecessary course duplication, the College attempts to transfer as many credits as possible for each student including credits earned in various military programs. The College does not transfer grades or GPA from previous institutions. Transfer credits will show on transcripts with a grade of TR and list the number of credit hours earned. The College makes no promises concerning transfer of credit until the Office of Registrar conducts an evaluation and communicates the results to the student. Students may schedule a review of their transfer credits by contacting the Enrollment Services.
All applicants must meet all of the application requirements which include the receipt of official transcripts from all post‐secondary institutions. Baptist Bible College follows the general transfer guidelines as found in the American Association of Collegiate Registrars and Admissions Officers (AACRAO) publication Transfer Credit Practices of Designated Educational Institutions.
Basic guidelines of Baptist Bible College for transferring credits are as follows:
- The post‐secondary institution must be regionally or nationally accredited;
- Transfer courses must be similar in content taught at BBC;
- Course credit value must be of equal or greater value to the course taught at BBC;
- Minimum transcript grade of C for course credit;
- Course must be required in major or minor;
- International Students must meet the guidelines found in The International Academic Credentials Handbook.
Students from non‐accredited institutions may file a written appeal to the Academic Committee requesting consideration for their transfer credit. The student will need to supply the College with the following documentation prior to the meeting of the Committee:
- Course syllabus including credit hours, course description and assignments;
- Credentials for the professor.
The student is encouraged to contact the Office of the Registrar if there are questions or concerns. Students may appeal a decision if they follow the guidelines published in the Student Handbook. (See Appeals concerning Actions Taken with Reference To Academics.)
