Home > Admissions > Transfer & Advanced Standing


The college is pleased to give credit for prior studies in accredited colleges and universities. Those with previous college or university studies should have their previous school(s) submit a transcript and request an evaluation for transfer credit.

There are two important restrictions:

  • Courses with a grade lower than "C" will not be transferred
  • If the incoming student did not graduate from the college he or she previously attended, the transferred credits cannot amount to more than one half of the courses required to complete the program.
  • Summit Pacific Distance Education does not grant credit for life experience. By its very nature, distance education assumes adult maturity and appropriate backgrounds for all students. The college fulfills the educational portion of preparation for a more useful involvement in Christian service, but students are expected also to be preparing themselves through practical life experience. Thus, life experience receives no additional credit.
  • Because not all educators accept Distance Education, Summit Pacific Distance Education cannot guarantee transferability. In practice, however, courses are being widely accepted for transfer to other colleges that are accredited.
  • Where college transfer is important to the student, he or she should query the institution to which transfer is planned in this regard.

As illustrated in the following chart, these courses may be transferred to another of Summit Pacific's certificate, diploma or degree programs
