Transferring to Taylor
Transferring to Taylor
Students who transfer from other recognized graduate-level institutions may receive transfer credit for courses completed with a "C-" standing or higher. Students who have taken an undergraduate course which parallels a course required in their program may apply to the Registrar to have the required course waived. If a course is waived, it must be replaced by another course in the same division or as specified by the Registrar.
The amount of credit given is based on the standards of the school previously attended and on the suitability of the courses taken to the requirements of the Taylor Seminary program. A transfer student must complete at least 32 credit hours at Taylor Seminary in order to be eligible for graduation. Normally transfer of credit is not given for undergraduate courses.

Congratulations on choosing Taylor Seminary, where faith and learning come together to build the leaders of tomorrow. At Taylor Seminary, you will prepare for life and your career, further studies or ministry as you grow within a community like no other.
The mission of Taylor Seminary is to develop Christ-minded leaders who make a difference in the world.

- to cultivate a faith in God that will sustain students in joy and sorrow, as well as attract others to a similar reliance and obedience
- to set students confidently on a path in which their knowledge, skills and faith will develop throughout a lifetime of effective and generous service to God and His Kingdom
