D.Min. Program Admission: Transferring Credit

Transfer of Advanced Standing Doctoral Credits

An individual may transfer a total of six advanced standing doctoral credits into the AGTS D.Min. program. Individual applications for the transfer of credits will be evaluated based upon the following considerations:

  • AGTS will accept advanced standing doctoral credits from ATS/CHEA–accredited institutions or those recognized by a foreign accrediting body.
  • Student must have earned a grade of "B" or higher in transfer courses.
  • Courses producing transfer credits normally must have been taken recently.
  • Extenuating circumstances of the participant will be considered (e.g., missionary in a situation that makes it difficult to take courses in a timely fashion.)
Transfer of Doctoral Credits for Clinical Pastoral Education

AGTS will accept up to six doctoral credits for valid/supervised pastoral clinical education if taken beyond the Master of Divinity degree. The institution and credit must be recognized by the Association for Clinical Pastoral Education, Inc., accreditation commission.

To Request Advanced Standing

Official transcripts must be received by the AGTS Admissions and Records Office before consideration for doctoral credit will be given. Any exceptions to the standard policy must be recommended by the D.Min. Committee and approved by the Academic Affairs Committee.

Note: Transfer of credit does not waive any portion of the Program Fee
