    Family Education Rights and Privacy Act of 1974 as Amended

    The Family Education Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA; also known as the “Buckley Amendment”) and provisions of the California Education Code set out requirements designed to govern the access to, and release of, educational records, to establish the right of students to inspect and review their records, and to provide guidelines for the correction of inaccurate or misleading data through informal and formal hearings. Students also have the right to file complaints with the FERPA Office at the United States Department of Education concerning alleged failures by The Master’s University to comply with provisions of FERPA.

    In accordance with the regulations of FERPA, as amended, The Master’s University has adopted policies and procedures concerning the implementation of FERPA on campus. Copies of the policy are available in the Office of the registrar. The Department of Education offers a copy of the FERPA regulations online.

    Directory Information

    Certain information designated as “Directory Information” may be disclosed without the consent or knowledge of the student unless the student has notified The Master’s University in advance that such information is not to be released. “Directory Information” at The Master’s University is defined as:

    • Name

    • Address

    • Telephone listing

    • E-mail Address

    • Date of birth (verification only)

    • Major field of study

    • Participation in officially recognized activities and sports

    • Height and weight of members of athletic teams

    • Dates of attendance at the university

    • Degrees and honors received

    • Enrollment status (undergraduate or graduate, full-time or part-time)

    • Year in school

    • Photographs

    • The most recent educational agency or institution attended

    The purpose of establishing this definition of Directory Information is to notify the student of the types of personally identifiable information included with this definition of “Directory Information” and to allow the student to prevent the disclosure of this information should he or she wish to do so.

    The student may request that his or her information remain confidential by checking the “No” option under the “Contact Information” section of the Student Registration Form.

    Implications of Specifying Confidentiality to Student Records

    Students requesting that their records remain confidential should be aware that no information will be given out to anyone, including immediate family members and potential employers, regarding any information about the student. Students with confidentiality are not able to obtain information concerning their own records unless they inquire in person or by writing a request which includes their signature.

    Students who have requested that their information remain confidential and who withdraw or graduate from the university should be aware that their information will remain confidential and will not be released without the signature and expressed consent of that student.


    The university does not permit access to, or the release of, personally identifiable information or educational records, to any individual without the written consent of the student, with the following exceptions:

    • To administrators, faculty, or staff of the university, having legitimate educational concerns.

    • To medical personnel when the health of the student or others would be endangered by the withholding of information.

    • To financial aid personnel in connection with an application for such aid.

    • To the parents of dependent children.

    • To the governmental officials designated by law, or in compliance with a judicial order.

  • Media Ethics

    I. Philosophy

    Learning to grow in the knowledge and grace of the Lord Jesus Christ is the mission of Christian higher education. We want to educate the heart as well as the mind, desiring to maintain an atmosphere that will be conducive to the development of spiritual maturity and discernment. Because each student coming to The Master’s University professes faith in Jesus Christ, we expect students to grow in that faith through the work of the Holy Spirit.

    The Master’s University is committed to developing its students into people who obey biblical mandates because they are personally accountable to God and His Word rather than to man alone. University policies are designed by the administration to facilitate an educational environment which honors the Lord.

    The student, by virtue of their signature on the application for admission, agrees to live within the framework of the standards of the university both on and off campus while each semester is in session. Though one’s personal convictions may differ with these standards, a student’s choice to become a part of The Master’s University community implies a commitment to abide by the established policies.

    God calls all believers to submit to the governing authorities (this includes federal, state, and/or local governments and their respective legislation). Romans 13 directs, “Let every person be in subjection to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God, and those which exist are established by God…render to all what is due them: tax to whom tax is due; custom to whom custom; fear to whom fear; honor to whom honor” (vv. 1, 7). Current laws governing the use of technology require students to honor these laws as a mandate regardless of personal opinion. Students who are in violation of such laws will face the consequences of campus discipline, as well as, legal liability.

    II. Definitions

    Electronic Media – Any electronic medium, including but not limited to: email text, chat, email attachments, gaming, web page viewing, video files, audio files, or computer/program files.

    TMU Network – Any TMU computer, server, software, program, facility or the hardware/equipment involved in the interconnection and interoperation of these items, or any said device connected to any such device at TMU (for example, any laptop/PC connected to the TMU wired/wireless network).

    Hacking – Defined as attempting to gain unauthorized access to systems, networks, or data – this includes any unauthorized attempt to incapacitate, interrupt, view, alter, copy or delete systems, networks or data.

    “Video” – Defined as watching audio/visual content (or files of such) via PC, DVD player, Blu-ray player, Television, or any other equipment.

    “Foreign” Media – Defined as data, images, programs, games, viruses, etc. which did not originally reside on the TMU network.

    Texting – Refers to the exchange of brief written messages between fixed-line phone or mobile phone and fixed or portable devices over a network.

    III. Guidelines

    Any “unwholesome” [i.e. actions inconsistent with our profession as Christ’s followers committed to holiness, truth, and the proper stewardship of His blessings (possessions, time, etc.)] use of Electronic Media which may include, but not be limited to: email text, chat, email attachments, video files, audio files, electronic/internet gaming, web page viewing or file transfers is expressly forbidden.


    Electronic mail which meets the following criteria is prohibited:

    Spamming – An attempt by any student(s) to issue unsolicited bulk email to other students, or to anyone outside of The Master’s University.

    Spoofing – Any attempt to send an email which appears to have originated from someone other than the actual sender. Unrelated to email, prohibited “spoofing” also includes any attempt to impersonate/borrow another user’s login.

    Internet/TMU Network

    Internet/TMU Network/MasterNet use is restricted in the following ways:

    Web Page viewing – Viewing http, https, ftp, or any Internet site regardless of protocol with illegal, pornographic, or any other immoral material is prohibited.

    Chat – Any application used for “Internet Messaging” or “Instant Messaging” cannot be used for illegal file trading (including, but not limited to audio/video files) or to send illicit messages to anyone.

    Uploading & Downloading of any type of electronic media file – The use of the Internet or the TMU Network for uploading and/or downloading files which contain unwholesome or illegal content is prohibited. THIS INCLUDES, BUT IS NOT LIMITED TO: ANY CONTENT WHICH IS PROTECTED BY COPYRIGHT LAW. Therefore, any file sharing involving music, video, audio, computer programs, etc. in which the distributor of the media (web page/site or server) is not a legal and officially licensed distributor of the media is PROHIBITED. Stated alternately, all “pirated” material is clearly prohibited. Simply because media is accessible, or free of charge, does not make it legal. Whether an individual “thinks” such a file transfer/download is legal is irrelevant; Copyright Law indicates it is stealing.

    The illegal distribution of copyrighted materials, including unauthorized peer-to-peer file sharing, may subject students to criminal and civil penalties. A summary of the penalties for violation of Federal copyright laws can be found at Any student found to be in violation of these policies could be subject to institutional discipline in addition to criminal and civil penalties.

    Hacking – Any usage of the TMU Network for activities that are directly or indirectly, advertently or inadvertently considered “hacking” are prohibited. Any attempt to bypass security or content restrictions (such as web page filtering) is considered “hacking.”

    Foreign Media – Any attempt to introduce “foreign”, harmful, and/or inappropriate media to The Master’s University Network is clearly prohibited (this includes, but is not limited to: viruses, worms, etc.). Complete responsibility for such actions lies with the student(s) who introduce it. Intentional introduction will be treated as hacking and the destruction of property.

    Usage for Internet/Server-The TMU network is not to be used to set up a personal “server.” The server prohibition includes, but is not limited to: file sharing, DCHP, WINS, DNS, Directory Services and Web Services. For an extended definition, see the Network Use Policy (NetworkPolicy).

    Phone Usage

    Illicit or harassing phone calls are prohibited. This includes calls to phone services with sexual content, or any type of inappropriate calls with/to other students.

    Texting – Illicit or harassing texting is prohibited. This includes texts with sexual content, or any type of inappropriate texts with/to other students.

    Printing/Scanning – Printing or scanning or illegal, pornographic, or any other immoral material is prohibited.

    IV. Consequences

    Each student bears full responsibility for his/her actions as they relate to the use of the TMU Network or any electronic media. Discipline for all infractions of the Media Ethics Policy will be under the direction of Student Life. This may include, but is not limited to, the suspension and/or revocation of network and Internet access and services.

    1. All legal consequences involving the use/misuse of the TMU Network or equipment lie solely with the user.

    2. The cost of damages caused by any student(s) enrolled at TMU will be born solely by the student(s) responsible individually; they shall not hold the university responsible in any way for their use/misuse of the Network whatever the ramifications of that use/misuse.

    3. Departures from the Media Ethics policy or any misuse of the TMU Network which may by “technicality” fall outside of this policy but which remain within the moral, ethical, and spiritual guidelines intended by the “spirit” of this policy are subject to discipline.

    July 23, 2010 (Ver. 1.3)

  • Policies


    The add/drop period (the first two weeks of each semester) allows students to make changes to their class schedules. We strongly recommend that students work with their academic advisor to ensure that they are on track to meet their degree requirements.

    Classes may be added during the first two weeks of each semester. Between the 3rd and 13th weeks of each semester, students may withdraw from classes without a grade penalty by completing an add/drop form and submitting it to the Registrar’s Office to make the changes. The student will receive a W (withdrawal) grade in that course. A student who never attends (or stops attending) a course for which he is officially registered without following the accepted procedures will be awarded the grade earned in that course.

    Directed Studies

    A Directed Studies (DS) course is a course that does not meet as a regularly scheduled class. A DS course may be appropriate to resolve a scheduling conflict, to complete a course not offered in a given academic term, or to study an academic topic or subject matter not offered by TMU.

    Note: Effective Fall 2016, new procedures and deadlines apply to DS courses. New DS courses must comply with all TMU procedures and deadlines that apply to non-DS courses, unless specifically stated otherwise.

    A “Directed Studies Course Contract” is used to enroll in a DS course. A completed Contract may be submitted to the Registrar’s Office as soon as the registration period opens for a given academic term and must be submitted no later than the end of the add/drop period for the academic term in which the DS course is to be added. For Spring 2017, a DS course may not be added after Monday, January 30, 2017. Drop/withdrawal procedures are identical to those for non-DS courses.

    A DS course taken in either the Fall or Spring term must be completed by the end of that academic term. A DS course taken in either the Winter or Summer term must be completed by the Friday before the start of the subsequent academic term. If a student does not compete the DS work on time, the Registrar’s Office will assign a grade of “F” to the student for the DS course.

    For tuition purposes, there is no distinction between units from DS and non-DS courses. Tuition refunds for dropping a DS course will be calculated and processed in accordance with normal Student Accounts procedures. A DS course fee of $50 per unit may be assessed in addition to tuition. The DS course fee is non-refundable after the end of the add/drop period.

    A student may enroll in no more than two DS courses in any one academic term, and a maximum of 13 units of TMU DS coursework may be used to complete a bachelor’s degree program.

    Repeated Courses

    A student may repeat any course which was previously attempted. No additional credits may be earned, however, by repeating a course which a student has already passed (grade of D- or higher) unless the course is designated as repeatable for credit. When a course is repeated at The Master’s University, the subsequent grade replaces the previous grade for GPA purposes (even if lower), but the previous grade remains on the student’s academic record and transcript.

    Grade Changes

    It is the student’s responsibility to immediately bring any error in grades to the attention of the instructor. Grade changes are made at the discretion of the instructor and will be posted to the student’s permanent record when the instructor completes a Grade Change Form and returns it to the Registrar’s Office.

    Non-Term Courses

    Non-term courses are identified as those not taken during the fall or spring semesters. Non-term at The Master’s University is considered as winterim and post-session.

    Winterim takes place during the second week of January. Course registration for winterim takes place simultaneously with spring course registration and extends until the first day of the winterim class. Tuition and fees are included on the student’s spring bill. A student may take no more than three total units during winterim.

    Post-session takes place during two time periods: 1) the final three weeks of May and 2) the first three weeks of June. Course registration for post-session begins during spring course registration and extends until the first day of the post-session class. Tuition and fees must be paid before the first day of class. A student may take no more than six units during each post-session.

    Awarding of Credit by Examination

    The Master’s University, as a member of the College Entrance Examination Board (CEEB), recognizes the merits of the Advanced Placement (AP), the College Level Examination Program (CLEP), and the International Baccalaureate (IB), and will grant credit for passing scores in certain tests offered through these programs. A student may earn a maximum of 32 semester units of AP/CLEP/IB exam transfer credit. If a student takes a college course for which he has already received AP/CLEP/IB credit, then he forfeits that transfer credit.

    The amount and type of credit awarded for each examination and the minimum passing score has been determined by the various academic departments. A list of acceptable AP/CLEP courses and credit granted for courses is available in the Registrar’s Office. If AP/CLEP examinations have been taken, contact the Registrar’s Office for information regarding acceptance of CLEP scores.

    Note: The Master’s University has been designated as a national testing facility for the CLEP examination. For testing information, click here or contact the Center for Career Services at ext. 3002.

    Verification of Enrollment

    Written verification of enrollment may be requested by a student at any time during the semester. Verification of enrollment may be released to any party: for student loan deferment, good student discounts on auto insurance, health insurance, scholarships, etc. A copy of the verification is kept in the student’s file. The Master’s University can verify enrollment for current and previous semesters, not for future semesters.

    Change of Name/Contact Information

    Should you need to update your information for our student records, please forward the pertinent information (preferably in writing) to our office via email or post office.

    Scholastic Probation

    Any student whose cumulative grade point average falls below 2.00 will be placed on academic probation for one semester. Any student entering on probation is limited to 15 units per semester. They must earn a minimum GPA of 2.00 at the end of the first semester to be removed from probation.

    Any student whose cumulative GPA remains below 2.00 for two consecutive semesters will be subject to academic disqualification. A student subject to disqualification may appeal by submitting a letter to the Vice President for Academic Affairs stating why he/she should not be disqualified. The student’s request will then be reviewed by the Academic Affairs Council for final decision.

    The procedure for readmission of an academically disqualified student includes: (1) a minimum of one semester of academic suspension, (2) attendance at another accredited institution and achievement of a 2.50 cumulative GPA on a minimum of twelve semester units of transferable coursework with no course grade lower than a “C”, and (3) review of the student’s application for readmission by the admissions committee.

    Any student whose GPA falls below 2.00 may not participate in extracurricular activities such as student government, athletics, music and mission teams.

    Complete Withdrawal from The Master’s University

    A student who, for any reason, finds it necessary to withdraw from the university during the course of the semester must do so through the Registrar’s Office. The student must complete the Complete Withdrawal form. Failure to comply with these regulations will result in failing grades entered on the student’s record. Any refund due the student is according to the refund policy available in the Student Accounts Center.

  • Transfer Policy

    Transfer Students

    Transfer Credit Policies

    TMU grants credit for college level coursework from other colleges and universities based on the following criteria:

    1. The student must have good standing at the institution(s) previously attended. Students who have been dismissed or suspended from another college for disciplinary reasons must request that a letter be sent by the dean of the college involved, detailing the reasons for such dismissal.

    2. No courses will be transferred in which the grade earned was less than C (2.0). Credit will be given for accepted courses which will apply toward the student’s course of study at The Master’s University.

    3. No more than 70 units of credit will be accepted from a junior/community college. Courses for which credit is allowed toward the bachelor’s degree must be university transfer level.

    4. No more than 94 units from other accredited institutions may apply toward fulfillment of degree requirements at The Master’s University. Transfer students must take at least 12 semester units of upper division work in their major at TMU.

    5. Students who are transferring from an accredited institution and who have completed a lower division course which had content comparable to an upper division course at The Master’s University may: (a) choose to retake the course at TMU to earn upper division credit for the course; or (b) choose to pass a competency exam to verify that the lower division course was comparable in rigor to the upper division course at TMU. Passing the competency exam entitles the student to enroll in another upper division course to earn sufficient upper division credits.

    6. Transfer credit may be granted to students from unaccredited schools of collegiate rank upon approval of the Vice-President for Academic Affairs.

    7. The Master’s University will grant credit for transferable college coursework taken before high school graduation if taken from an accredited college. Official transcripts must be submitted and all other transfer requirements met.

    8. The maximum number of transfer credits which will be awarded for various types of “non-traditional” college coursework from accredited institutions are as follows:

      • 32 units of Advanced Placement (maximum of 32 units), CLEP examinations (maximum of 18 units), or credit by TMU assessment (maximum of 12 units).

      • 45 units of transfer credit from military transcript with maximum of 30 units applicable toward meeting TMU general education requirements.

      • 36 units of non-traditional course work including: directed studies courses, correspondence courses, computer and WWW-based distance education courses, or video/ITV-based courses.

    Credit Limits for Non-Traditional TMU Coursework

    The maximum number of semester units from non-traditional format TMU courses that a student may count toward a degree program is as follows:

    • 13 units of TMU Directed Studies courses.

    • 24 units of intensive format TMU courses (Post-session, Winterim, or GE school).

    • 24 units of credit for life experience assessment.

    Credit by Examination

    The Master’s University, as a member of the College Entrance Examination Board, recognizes the merits of the Advanced Placement (AP), College Level Examination Program (CLEP), and the International Baccalaureate (IB), and will grant credit for passing scores in certain tests offered through these programs. A student may earn a maximum of 32 semester units of AP/CLEP exam transfer credit. If a student takes a college course for which he/she has already received AP/CLEP credit, then he/she forfeits that transfer credit.

    The Master’s University reserves the right to determine the amount of credit that will be awarded for all AP/CLEP transfer credit examinations. Credit for all AP courses other than Math and Science, is awarded based on a score of “3”, “4”, or “5”. Credit for Math and 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 CLEP score of 55 or above. The university will grant credit for IB examinations with scores of “5”, “6”, or “7”.

    Note: The Master’s University has been designated as a national testing facility for the CLEP examination. If CLEP examinations have already been taken, contact the Registrar’s Office for information regarding acceptance of CLEP scores. For testing information, see our CLEP Testing pages.

    The Master’s University

    AP Information & Policies

    High school students may receive advanced collegiate standing by participating in the Advanced Placement (AP) program. Up to 32 credits may be earned through this program or by other test-out procedures. Hours earned through Advanced Placement do not count as hours in residence toward graduation with honors.

    To earn credit through Advanced Placement, students must enroll in specific AP courses offered by their respective high schools. Upon completing these courses, students take individual Advanced Placement examinations in each Advanced Placement course. Students may earn college credit for AP scores of three, four, or five. Students should request that scores from these examinations be sent directly to The Master’s University by entering code number 4411 on their registration forms. Upon receiving these scores, the university awards the appropriate amount and type of credit for each examination as determined by each academic department. No fees other than the fees accompanying the examinations, must be paid in order to receive the college credit. In some cases, sophomore standing in particular subject areas may be earned through these examinations. Students should contact their local high schools to obtain Advanced Placement course and registration information.

    The Master’s University

    CLEP Information & Policies

    The Master’s University participates in the College-Level Examination Program (CLEP) sponsored by The College Board and administered nationally by Educational Testing Services through participating colleges and universities. This program is designed to provide the opportunity for students to earn college credit by passing examinations in subject areas in which they have already developed college-level knowledge and understanding. The examinations are composed of various multiple-choice questions and are administered in timed segments totaling 90 minutes.

    The Master’s University offers CLEP tests to current TMU students, as well as to individuals who have been accepted for admission to the university. For information on CLEP testing, click here.

    CLEP examinations and the scores required to qualify for credit at The Master’s University are reviewed annually are effective from July 1 through the following June. Score reports are evaluated by the standards being utilized at the time the exam was taken.

    Students may not pursue credit by CLEP examination for any course in which they have been enrolled. Additionally, students may not CLEP a course if they have taken a more advanced level course in that discipline. Hours earned through CLEP examinations do not count as hours in residence toward graduation with honors.

    Note: For students entering TMU 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.

    A maximum of 32 semester units of test-out credit (including CLEP, AP, IB, and other department-approved test outs) may be earned toward a degree at The Master’s University.

    The CLEP program requires a minimum 6-month waiting period before repeating any test. CLEP exam results for high school students will be applied to the student’s TMU transcript upon matriculation at the university.

    Students may take CLEP exams at other institutions and request the scores be sent to The Master’s University. This is done by designating The Master’s University in the appropriate place when taking the exam. The Master’s CLEP number is 4411. A complete list of test centers throughout the country is available from The College Board in Princeton, New Jersey, or can be referenced in the Career Services Center at The Master’s University.

Registration for the fall semester is held during the months of March and April for the spring semester and during the months of October and November for the fall semester. All students are required to register if they plan to return to school the following semester.

Students register online with their advisors during their scheduled registration days. Registration is completed when students have completed Pre-Registration and have registered for classes using their Self-Service account.


The purpose of Check-In is to verify the enrollment of students and enable them to complete the processes in a one-stop format. New Student Check-In for the fall is held on the Monday of Week of Welcome while in the spring it is held in conjunction with Continuing Student Check-In. Continuing Student Check-In in the fall is held the Saturday prior to the first day of classes and on the Wednesday before the first day of classes in the spring. Late Check-In begins the first day of classes following the final scheduled day of regular check-in and continues for five days.


When do I register?

Every fall and spring semester, the University sets a specific date and time for current students to enroll in their classes for the following semester. You can view your registration time on the Self-Service Reminder Box. Registration times are determined by the number of units the student has completed at the time of registration. Units the student is taking in the current semester do not count for this purpose.

When is ADD/DROP period?

This is the last day a student can register for classes. View the Academic Calendar to see the ADD/DROP period.

How do I complete Pre-Registration?

  1. Open your internet browser and access
  2. Select the Students link and go to Self-Service.
  3. Click the link on the home page titled “Pre-Registration.”


 4. Click on the link labeled “Register for The Master’s University as a traditionalUndergraduate Student.”


 5. Complete/verify the information on each page until you reach the “Confirmation and Signature” section. Review the displayed summary of your selections on this page and read the terms of the Student Agreement. Type your Self-Service username/password in the Electronic Signature portion of this page. Select “Sign and Submit” to submit your Pre-Registration. You should see a “Congratulations” message. You will not be allowed to register for classes until you have completed this step.

We recommend that you talk with your parents and seek their support, advice or answers before completing these sections:

  • Emergency Contact
  • Billing and Payment
  • Housing Preferences
  • Meal Plan
  • Health Insurance
  • Vehicle

How do I add classes to my cart?

You will need to use the Self-Service section of the University’s website to “shop” for classes.  Using the steps outlined below, you will be able to select as many courses as you would like to place in your electronic “shopping cart.”  Placing a course in your cart DOES NOT reserve a seat for you in that class.  It does, however, give you a “short list” of classes so that you can be more efficient in finalizing your schedule when you meet with your advisor.  You may shop for courses at any time.  However, you must complete Pre-Registration & Course Shopping before you meet with your advisor.  Please use the following steps to shop for classes: 

 1. Open your internet browser, and access Click on the Students tab, then select the Self-Service icon.

  1. Log in to Self-Service using your student username and password. If you cannot log in, please click “Forgot your password?” under the login area. If you still cannot log in, please contact the IT Service Desk at and/or (661)362-2876.


 3. On the home page, under the column labeled Students, click on Find Courses.

 4. You can enter various information to find your classes. In the Section Search, enter a keyword such as “Bible.” Or, you can enter the Course Code such as “B” or “B101”.  You do not have to enter information into both the Keywords and the Course Code boxes.

    The period is the semester you wish to add classes in, i.e Fall 2017.
    The Registration Type is Traditional.
    The Session is Traditional.

*Please select session according to your program. For example, if you are an MABC/S student, please select MABC/S session; or if you are an Online Degree Program student, you should select Online Degree Program. 

Click “Search” and a list of classes meeting your specifications will show up.

 5. Click “Add” to add classes to your cart. The class may already be full before you add it to your cart. If it is, select “Wait.” It will still be added to your cart.



A box will appear after you click “Add” or “Wait.” Simply hide this box and continue to make your selections. An inventory of your cart can be seen on the right side of the screen.



Note:  Your cart has an unlimited holding capacity.  You can place as many classes in it as you want.  However, you won’t be able to empty your cart until you meet with your advisor.  The more courses you place in it, the longer the list will be that you will need to sort through every time you try to find the classes you actually want.  If you need assistance in the procedure to shop for classes, the Registrar’s Office will be available to help you at (661) 362-2813 or (661) 362-2812.

 6. To start a new search, click on the “New Search” link on the left of the screen.


  1. If you want to see the weekly schedule of the classes in your cart, click on “View Schedule.”




This will open up a new window. Classes listed in Blue are Registered courses. Classes listed in Orange    are Waitlisted/Pending classes, and classes in Green are classes in your shopping cart. 

Close this window to go back to the standard view of your cart.

8. When you have completed shopping, log out of Self-Service or simply exit your browser. 

     Note:  The classes you place in your shopping cart will stay there until you empty them (when you meet with your advisor).  You are free      to access the class shopping option as many times as you want.  You do NOT need to complete all of your shopping in one sitting. 

How do I complete class registration?

You MUST complete Pre-Registration and Course Shopping BEFORE you meet with your faculty advisor.  He/she will NOT be able to register you for classes unless you have completed pre-registration and shopped for classes.  Also, your advisor will NOT be able to register you for classes until your registration period begins.  The registration schedule is as follows for Fall 2017:


 You may schedule an advising appointment as early as possible, however, you will not be able to process your course selections until the date(s) listed above.

  •  If you have a laptop, you are encouraged to bring it and log into Self-Service as soon as you arrive for your advising appointment.  If you do not have a laptop, your advisor will still be able to register you.  Advising and Class Selection will proceed as follows: 
  1. BEFORE you register for classes, please make sure you do not have any stops on your account. To see if you have any stops on your account, log in to Self-Service. Then, click on the “Register” tab. Click “Traditional Courses.” This will show you a list of stops (if any) on your account.

Note: If you have a stop on your account, you will not be able to register for classes. The reason(s) for your stop will be displayed if you click on “Register.” Please correct the issues and make another advising appointment.


  1. Your advisor will access Self-Service on his/her computer and authorize you to select classes.

 3. Using your laptop (or logging into a separate session on your advisor’s computer), log in to Self-Service (if you have not already done so.)

4. Click “Cart” at the top of the screen to view classes added to your cart.

5. Click the Register box at the top of the screen.

6. All classes will have check marks in boxes next to the course name. Click on boxes next to courses that you do not want to register for and the check mark will disappear. Verify the classes you want to register for are selected and the classes you don’t want to register for are not selected.


Note:  If you need to register for a course that is not in your shopping cart, click on the Section Search icon to return to the Section Search screen.  Find and add the class(es) you need to your cart & then click on the Registration link on the left of the page to return to the Registration screen.

 7. After all selections are made, click “Next.”  This shows your “Updated Schedule.” The system will check to see if the classes you’ve selected are open and have no time conflicts.  If the classes you’ve selected meet these criteria, you will be added to each of the classes.  At this point, you have a reserved seat in the class.  If any of the criteria are not met for any of the classes, the system will NOT process any of your requests.   

Note: If you do not see your updated schedule, click the “Previous” button.

  1. Once the updated schedule is confirmed, click the “Next” button.
  2. Once you are finished, the following screen will appear:


How do I drop classes?

At this point, you may add additional classes (from your shopping cart) and/or drop classes you didn’t want.  Continue to work with your advisor to add and drop classes until you get the schedule you want.  If you do not need to make any changes, please proceed to number 8.

1. Click on the “Register” tab.

2. Click the “Traditional Courses” link.

3. Click the semester, i.e. Fall 2017, link.

4. Under the section labeled “Registered Courses” click on the box to check the course you want to drop.

5. After all selections are made, click “Next.” This shows your “Updated Schedule.”

Note: If you do not see your updated schedule, click the “Previous” button.

6. Once the updated schedule is confirmed, click the “Next” button.

7. After you are finished, the following screen will appear:

8. When you and your advisor have arrived at a mutually acceptable schedule, we recommend that you print out your copy of the class schedule by clicking on the Print option at the top of the screen.  This will open up a new “printable” window. To begin printing, click on the Print icon in the Microsoft tool bar.  You may then close this window.

9. At this point, you should empty your shopping cart of all the extra courses that will not be needed. 

    To empty the shopping cart, you should:  

  • Click on the “Cart” link.
  • Click “Remove” next to the classes that you will not be adding to your schedule. This will remove them from your cart.



How does the waitlist work?

Students are notified by email to their TMU email at 6pm for openings. You must reply by 5pm the following day (weekends excepted). Otherwise, your seat will be given to the next student on the waitlist.

Senior/Graduate Contract

Students intending to graduate must make a Graduation Contract appointment with the Registrar to start a “Senior Contract and Application for Graduation”. The contract declares intent to graduate on a certain date, and allows the Registrar’s Office to collect the necessary graduation information from the student. It also provides a method to specify exactly what coursework will be required of the student during his/her final year/semester. Once completed and signed, this form is a contract between the student, his/her advisor and the Registrar’s Office. This form should be completed during the student’s next-to-last semester before graduation.

Undergraduate Graduation Requirements

The Master’s University grants bachelor’s degrees to students who satisfy the graduation requirements described below:

  1. Complete a minimum of 122 semester units of credit.

  2. Complete a minimum of 40 semester units in upper division courses.

  3. Satisfy all General Education requirements.

  4. Complete the required curriculum for the chosen major field(s) of study.

  5. Maintain a minimum GPA of 2.00 (cumulative) in all TMU courses and in one’s major(s).

  6. Complete a minimum of 32 semester units of non-Directed Studies coursework at TMU or 32 semester units of TMU Degree Completion Program major courses.

  7. Complete at least 12 of the final 24 semester units at TMU.

Please note that degree requirements within each major are determined by the departmental faculty. Many majors feature a variety of emphases which may have different unit requirements for graduation. Progress toward fulfillment of these major requirements is monitored by departmental faculty and by the Registrar through senior contracts.

Students are held to the unit requirements within general education and their major/emphasis according to the Academic Catalog under which they initially enter The Master’s University. This applies, as well, to those students whose continuous enrollment is interrupted and then return to the university.

Graduation ceremonies are held once a year with the conclusion of the spring semester, usually in May. Students who finish their degree in the fall semester will receive their degree immediately and are invited to walk in commencement exercises the following May.

Undergraduate Graduation Honors

Honors at graduation for baccalaureate recipients are granted to students who have completed at least 60 semester units at The Master’s University and have attained the following cumulative grade point average:

Cum Laude………………..3.50-3.64 Magna Cum Laude………3.65-3.84 Summa Cum Laude……..3.85-4.00

Honors recognized in the graduation ceremony may be changed based on the processing of final grades.
