Crown College is a special purpose institution. Students should be aware that transfer of credit is always the responsibility of the receiving institution. Whether or not credits transfer is solely dependent upon the evaluation policies of the receiving institution. Any student interested in transferring credit hours should check with the receiving institution directly to determine how many, if any, credit hours can be transferred.

Course credits with a minimum grade of “C-” earned at other institutions are eligible for transfer to a degree program to the extent that the courses are comparable to Crown College of the Bible’s stated requirements. An official transcript from the institution attended, showing satisfactory course completion, is required. The institution from which credits are being transferred must be considered of comparable academic quality. Evaluation will be made by the academic administration, and consideration will be given to academic function, faculty, and curricula used at the institution. Courses taken at Bible institutes, etc. are subject to review by the academic administration. No more than 12 credit hours from an approved correspondence school will be accepted toward an undergraduate degree.

Undergraduate transfer students must complete their last 36 hours in residence before graduation. Graduate transfer students must complete their last 50% of a program at Crown Graduate School or Crown Seminary.

For reasons of doctrinal distinctiveness or emphasis, certain courses must be taken exclusively at Crown College of the Bible, although the student may have completed a similar course with a passing grade elsewhere. This applies to the following courses:

  • CM121 – Personal Evangelism
  • CM132 – Living the Christian Life
  • BI211 – Bible Doctrine I
  • BI212 – Bible Doctrine II
  • ED322 – Theology of Christian Education (if required in the student’s degree program)
  • Biological Science courses (if required in the student’s degree program, and if not completed at an institution holding a biblical view of creation)

All questions regarding the transfer of credits should be directed to the dean of the program of study in which the student is enrolled.

Crown College of the Bible students are not required to take college entrance exams, but those students who have completed such exams having earned a minimum required score are eligible for transfer credit. The following credit is awarded:
