THE COLLEGE
Transfer Credit Policies
TMC grants credit for college level course work
from other colleges and universities based on the
following criteria:
1. The student must have good standing at the
institutions previously attended. Students who
have been dismissed or suspended from another
college for disciplinary reasons must request
that a letter be sent by the dean of the college
involved, detailing the reasons for such dismissal.
2. No courses will be transferred in which the grade
earned was less than C (2.0). Credit will be given
for accepted courses which will apply toward the
student’s course of study at The Master’s College.
3. No more than 70 units of credit will be accepted
from a community college. Courses for which
credit is allowed toward the bachelor’s degree
must be university transfer level.
4. No more than 94 units from other accredited
institutions may apply toward fulfillment of
degree requirements at The Master’s College.
Transfer students must take at least 12 semester
units of upper division work in their major at
TMC.
5. Students who are transferring from an accredited
institution and who have completed a lower
division course which had content comparable to
an upper division course at The Master’s College
may: (a) choose to retake the course at TMC to
earn upper division credit for the course; or (b)
choose to pass a competency exam to verify that
the lower division course was comparable in rigor
to the upper division course at TMC. Passing the
competency exam entitles the student to enroll in
another upper division course to earn sufficient
upper division credits.
6. Transfer credit may be granted to students from
unaccredited schools of collegiate rank upon
approval of the Vice President of Academic
Affairs or the Registrar.
7. The Master’s College will grant credit for
transferable college coursework taken before
high school graduation if taken from an
accredited college. Official transcripts must be
submitted and all other transfer requirements
met.
8. The maximum number of transfer credits
which will be awarded for various types of “non
traditional” college course work from accredited
institutions are as follows:
32 units
of Advanced Placement (maximum
of 32 units), College Level Examination
Program (maximum of 18 units), and credit
by TMC assessment (maximum of 12 units).
•

Credit by Examination
The Master’s College, as a member of the College
Entrance Examination Board, recognizes the merits
of the Advanced Placement (AP), College Level
Examination Program (CLEP) and the International
Baccalaureate (IB), and will grant credit for passing
scores in certain tests offered through these programs.
A student may earn a maximum of 32 semester units
of transfer credit across the combination of AP
exams (32 units max.), IB exams (32 units max.), and
CLEP exams (18 units max.). If a student takes a
college course for which he/she has already received
AP credit, then he/she forfeits that transfer credit.
The Master’s College reserves the right to determine
the amount of credit that will be awarded for all
AP/CLEP transfer credit examinations. Credit for
all AP courses other than science, is awarded based
on a score of “3”, “4” or “5”. Credit for science
AP courses is awarded based on a score of “4” or
