Transfer Credits

Pre-Evaluation

One of the most frequent questions we receive from transfer students is, “Will my credits transfer into King’s?” We are happy to complete a pre-evaluation of your college courses to see which will apply towards your intended program. Simply submit a transcript (can be unofficial) from each of the colleges or institutions of higher learning you would like reviewed, include AP scores, and let us know which major(s) you’re considering. Please note: the pre-evaluation is an estimate of the courses that are transferable into The King’s College and does not guarantee the amount of time it will take to complete the program. Changes to major, course availability, student’s choices, final grades, among other factors, contribute to changes to the graduation date. All credits are pending final official college transcripts from each institution you’ve attended. Contact Katelyn Tamm with questions about your transcript evaluation.

You or a school counselor may send unofficial or official transcripts by email to admissionsoffice@tkc.edu, by fax (877-349-0231) or by snail mail:

Preparing To Transfer

If you’re thinking about transferring to King’s in the future, you can optimize the classes you choose at your current institution by keeping the following in mind:

  • Transfer courses are evaluated on a case-by-case basis.
  • We accept a maximum of 60 transfer credits from other regionally accredited institutions as recognized by the U.S. Department of Education.
  • Credits earned at non-regionally accredited institutions may be evaluated on a case-by-case basis.
  • We accept credits from classes with grades of a “C” or higher. (We do not accept Pass or Fail credits.)
  • Before taking politics and science courses at your current institution, you should know that every King’s student is required to take “Foundations of Politics” and “Scientific Reasoning” at King’s.
  • Previous grade point averages (GPAs) will not transfer to The King’s College, but will be considered for admission.
  • We can help you pre-evaluate credits based on an unofficial transcript, but we must receive your final official college transcripts to formally transfer your credits.

You can consult the Major Maps in our college Catalog to see the types of classes offered in the program you’re considering, as well as more details regarding transferring credits into The King’s College.

Full Transfer Policy

Any student desiring to transfer to The King’s College is required to submit an official transcript from each of the colleges or institutions of higher learning he or she has attended since graduating from high school. Transcripts should indicate courses entered, in progress, or completed. Evidence of good standing should also be indicated on the transcript. It is the applicant’s responsibility to request that these transcripts be sent to The King’s College Office of Admissions. The King’s College accepts transfer credit from other regionally accredited institutions as recognized by the U.S. Department of Education. Credits earned at non-regionally accredited institutions may be evaluated on a case-by-case basis.

Credit cannot be accepted on the basis of a P (Pass) or similar grade, unless a letter or numerical grade is also provided or the transcript bears the statement that such a grade is given only if the student is doing C or better work. Credit is granted for courses in which a grade of C or higher was made. These courses must be applicable to the degree requirements of The King’s College.

The maximum number of hours that may be transferred for the Bachelor’s degree is 60. Transfer credits that are not equivalent to a course in the student’s program may transfer in as electives. Additionally, students may not apply more than 30 online credit hours to their degree program.

Transfer students who have earned less than 30 semester hours of college credit must provide high school transcripts and SAT or ACT scores. Transfer students who have not previously earned an Associate’s degree must submit proof of high school graduation. For further information regarding the transfer of courses from another institution, please consult the Registrar’s Office.
