THE COLLEGE
Admission
The following admission policies and procedures
apply to candidates seeking admission to any of
the college’s residential undergraduate programs.
Requirements for all graduate programs and the
Degree Completion Program are referred to later
in this catalog.
The Master’s College welcomes applications from
students who are on a curriculum plan to complete
their secondary (high school) education within
the next twelve months. High school graduates
and college students intending to transfer are also
encouraged to apply. In selecting students, the college
is drawn to those who present a strong academic
record, show evidence for graduation, articulate
a clear testimony of faith in Jesus Christ, share a
common theological perspective, and offer potential
to contribute positively to the college community.
To assist in the admission and financial aid process
(commonly referred to as Enrollment), each
student is assigned to an Admissions Counselor.
Counselors are geographically assigned to prospective
students and an interactive territory map along with
biographical information is available online at www.
masters.edu/admissions.

Grade Point Average
To determine admission and financial aid eligibility,
The Master’s College uses both Grade Point Averages
(GPA) and College Test scores (SAT I or ACT). The
Master’s College maintains a policy of utilizing an
applicant’s GPA as it is reported on their official high
school transcript. The college encourages applicants
to pursue the most challenging courses possible.
When multiple Grade Point Averages are presented,
the college selects the academic (non-elective) GPA
that best favors the student. By request, The Master’s
College will calculate a student’s weighted GPA using
the UC/CSU GPA guidelines.
