DISCONTINUED PROGRAM TEACH-OUT POLICY
If, at any time, the decision is made to discontinue offering a degree and/or major/emphasis program, The Master’s
University and Seminary (TMUS) administration will make financial and curricular arrangements to ensure that any
student who has completed 50% of the required program coursework at TMUS will be able to complete his/her degree
program. This may be accomplished through a variety of strategies, including offering directed studies of discontinued
courses, substituting appropriate alternative elective course opportunities, and/or accepting a larger than normal amount
of transfer units to meet degree requirements.
Students will be charged the same tuition and fee rates for completing a discontinued program as are being charged to
students in comparable ongoing TMUS degree/major/emphasis programs.
