Transfer Student Admission

Transfer of Credit for Master's Programs

Students may transfer master's level courses from another regionally accredited institution provided:

  1. A minimum grade of “B” was earned on all courses under consideration.
  2. The courses are equivalent to courses in the applicable degree program at Dallas Baptist University.
  3. Courses were completed within a six-year period prior to enrollment in a master’s degree program at DBU.
  4. None of the transfer work consists of correspondence or workshop courses not transcribed by a regionally accredited university, or credit earned through life and work experience.

Students may petition for transfer credit completed prior to the initial enrollment, thereby reducing the number of credit hours required to be taken at DBU for the degree. Evaluation and approval of transfer of credit shall be made by the director of the appropriate master's program and the Assistant Director of Graduate Admissions. A DBU graduate student may not apply for transfer of credit for classes taken at another institution after the initial enrollment at DBU except under mitigating circumstances and with evaluation and approval of the Assistant Director of Graduate Admissions, the Associate Vice President for Graduate & Corporate Affairs, and the director of the appropriate master's program.
