To be considered for admission, transfer candidates must meet all general entrance requirements, and be in good standing with the most recently attended educational institution (eligible to return and not on any form of probation).
Applicants must request that official transcripts be sent to Moody Bible Institute from the most recent college or university attended. Unless applicants have already earned a bachelor’s degree, students must ask their secondary school to send an official transcript as well. Final transcripts of all college work must be in the student’s file prior to enrollment at Moody.
Credits from regionally accredited colleges and members of the Commission on Accreditation of the Association for Biblical Higher Education (ABHE) are fully transferable provided that they apply to the student’s course of study at Moody. Courses in which less than a C is earned (2.0 on a 4.0 scale) are not transferable. Upon matriculation an official evaluation of all transfer credits will determine each student’s projected graduation date.
It is not academically acceptable to apply credit used to fulfill the requirements of one bachelor’s degree towards the completion of a second bachelor’s degree at Moody. Therefore, students who already possess a bachelor’s degree are encouraged to consider our graduate programs. Moody Theological Seminary offers a variety of opportunities for individuals who have already obtained a bachelor’s degree, but desire to gain additional Bible and theology training.
