The Master’s College 2015-2016 Catalog



(32 units max.), IB HL exams (32 units max.), CLEP

exams (18 units max.), and DSST (18 units max.). If

a student takes a college course for which he or she

has already received AP or CLEP credit, then he or

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/IB/DSST 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 “5”. CLEP examination credit

may be granted for all courses based on a score of

55 or higher. The college will grant credit for IB

examinations with scores of “5”, “6” or “7”. The

College will grant credit for DSST examinations on

an ACE recommened basis.

For students entering TMC as freshmen or

sophomores, CLEP credit will only be awarded up

to the end of the student’s first semester of his/her

senior year. For transfer juniors or seniors, CLEP

credit will be awarded up to the fourth week of the

final semester of the senior year.


The Master’s College has been designated as

a national testing facility for the CLEP examination.

If CLEP examinations have already been taken,

contact the Office of the Registrar for information

regarding acceptance of CLEP scores. For testing

information, contact the Office of Career Services.


The College sets aside a period at the beginning

of the Fall semester for reception, registration and

orientation. During these days the new students

become acquainted with programs and facilities

provided for their instruction.

1. All students will be notified regarding the Fall

orientation and check-in information. A schedule

of classes is published and is available before


2. All continuing students are required to have an

interview with their academic advisor at least

once per semester prior to registration.

3. An evaluation of credits is made of all transfer

college work, and new transfer students, in

addition to their advisor, will receive a copy of

this evaluation. A student may contact the Office

of the Registrar or refer to the bottom of their

student schedule on Self-Service for the name

of his/her advisor.

4. Late check-in continues one week following the

priority check-in day.

5. Check-in is completed only after financial

arrangements have been made with the Director

of Student Accounts.



Adding Courses


Courses may be added

electronically only during the first two weeks of

a semester.


Dropping Courses

. Courses may be dropped

electronically during the first two weeks of a

semester and will not appear on the student’s

permanent transcript. Courses dropped from the

third to the thirteenth week of a semester will

appear on the transcript with a grade of “W.”

Courses may not be dropped after the thirteenth

week of class except in the case of serious illness.


Repeating Courses.

Students may repeat

courses in which grades of ‘D’ or ‘F’ are earned.

Repeats of ‘D-’ courses or above earn no units.

When a course is repeated where a ‘D’ or ‘F’

grade was earned, only the repeated grade will

count in the computation of the GPA. The

course and grade of ‘D’ or ‘F’ will, however,

remain on the student’s academic record. Some

departments may demand the repeat of a course

within the major that was credited with a ‘C-’.


Changes in Course Schedule.

If a student

desires to drop a course following the first two

weeks of a semester, he/she must have the

permission of his/her instructor, academic

advisor, and the Office of the Registrar to make

changes. Forms are available in the Office of

the Registrar.


Course and Lab Fees.

These fees will be

refunded if a student drops a course during the

first two weeks of the semester. After that time,
