Transfer Credit Evaluation

For consideration of transfer credit in REL, students must 

  1. Fill out the “Equivalency Evaluation Form” (College of Arts and Sciences) or, if in another college or school, the appropriate transfer credit form. Be sure to provide the transferring course number and title.
  2. Provide a formal bulletin description of the course.
  3. Provide evidence that the instructor has an earned Ph.D. (a Doctor of Ministry degree [D.Min.] is not acceptable). A photocopy of the relevant portion of the school’s bulletin or the departmental website noting the credentials of the instructor will constitute proof.
  4. Provide an email address so that you can be informed when your request has been evaluated (plan on several days).
  5. Fill out this online form. For further assistance, contact transfer credit advisor Dr. Nebil Husayn.


The Department does not accept college-level religious studies courses taught by a high school instructor in a dual enrollment program.
