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 and Online Programs 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/undergrad.

yet to be established, a mid-semester grade report

is acceptable.

on Critical Reading and Math sub-tests. For those

an application on file to participate and a meeting is

not required for admission. Members of the

Admissions Team are available throughout the

calendar year with the exception of Winter Break.

Please check the TMC website for school holidays,

closures, or conflicts.

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.
