Admission

21

THE COLLEGE

earlier age than their public or private high school

counterparts. The College retains the right to

defer an applicant’s entrance until such a time

as it deems appropriate.

Transfer Applicants

An individual will be classified as a transfer student

if he/she has completed 24 or more semester units

(36 or more quarter units) of transferable college

coursework at the time of application to TMC.

College-level units earned prior to high school

graduation (including dual enrollment units and

credit-by-examination) are not counted toward

this total. Students desiring to transfer must file an

application for admission and submit official copies

of all college transcripts regardless of their intent

to receive credit. Students desiring to transfer from

Christian colleges should also provide a completed

Christian College Transfer Recommendation Form

(available at

www.masters.edu/downloads

).

Students who wish to transfer to TMC from another

college or university, but will not have completed 24

post-high school semester units (36 quarter units) at

the time of application, will be considered freshman

with prior college credit. This will not affect such

students’ eligibility for admission; however, it will

require them to submit their official high school

transcript containing their high school GPA, along

with ACT or SAT test scores.

College transcripts from other institutions are

evaluated and credit is awarded prior to the student’s

first semester at The Master’s College. For financial

aid and degree planning purposes, this evaluation is

made available to both the student and the academic

advisor. Any additional transcripts received after the

semester has begun will be evaluated immediately and

credit awarded within four weeks of their receipt by

the Registrar’s Office.

degree or the equivalent. All transcripts must

be translated into English and must be official

copies.

2. All applicants to The Master’s College must

If the student’s first language is English, he or

she may submit the SAT I (school code 4411) or
