Transferring Credits

Transferring Credits

Course credits with a minimum grade of “C” (“B” in the Doctor of Ministry program) earned at other accredited seminaries and graduate theological schools are eligible for transfer to the extent that the courses are comparable to Denver Seminary’s stated requirements. Transferred courses must have been completed within the listed time frame below at the time the Denver Seminary degree is awarded:

  • MA programs — eight years
  • MDiv program — ten years
  • ThM program — five years
  • DMin program — six years

All master's-level students must take at least one course in New Testament, Old Testament, and theology from Denver Seminary faculty. Transfer hours are limited to a maximum of eight hours in the major or concentration (nine hours in the MA in Counseling program). No transfer credit may apply to a certificate program. Only transfer credit that applies to a student’s degree program will be accepted.

The following number of semester hours may be transferred:

  • A maximum of six hours toward the DMin degree
  • A maximum of thirty-nine hours toward the MDiv degree
  • A maximum of twenty-five hours toward the MA degree
  • A maximum of six hours toward the ThM degree

When a degree has been conferred at another institution, no more than one-half of the hours applied to that earned degree (not to exceed the maximums noted above) may be transferred to a Denver Seminary degree program.

An official transcript from the institution attended showing satisfactory course completion is required. Transfer hours are not accepted for non-degree students. Questions regarding the transfer of credits should be directed to the Registrar’s Office.

Transfer Credit Disclaimer

Transfer of credit from Denver Seminary to another institution is at the discretion of the receiving institution to determine which courses taken at Denver Seminary are eligible for transfer.
