Acceptance of transfer coursework for the credential programs is determined case-by-case basis. Coursework that has been taken more than five years prior to admission may not be accepted. The candidate may also need to retake courses if methods have changed significantly or if there has been a lapse of time out of the profession. This determination is made at the sole discretion of the TMU credential program. Candidates should provide official transcripts and course descriptions for transfer credit evaluation as part of the admissions process.
Credential program candidates may be eligible for state and federal financial aid programs. Contact the TMU Financial Aid Office for information.
In addition, TMU has two scholarships designated for the Credential Programs. The James Corcoran Scholarship is a program-specific scholarship established to help qualified candidates complete a credential program at The Master’s University. Candidates who have demonstrated Christian character, a serious commitment to teaching, and careful financial stewardship are eligible to apply for this scholarship. Applications can be found here.
