TRANSFER OF UNDERGRADUATE CREDIT POLICY
Students seeking a B.A. undergraduate degree at GIAL must petition to transfer undergraduate credits from another institution for a maximum of 54 ush including all of the general education credits that are required as part of the GIAL B.A. admissions process.
These 54 ush must:
include the general education portion of the degree program
meet the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board’s Core Curriculum
requirements (see BA-IS Transfer Petition form)
be transferred from regionally accredited institutions of higher education, or from institutions accredited by the American Theological Society (ATS) or the Association for Biblical Higher Education (ABHE)
show original course number and grade on an official transcript and be included in the GPA from the original institution
Credits transferred into the GIAL BA must each have a passing grade, according to the institution from which it was assigned. The 54 ush may include courses with a minimum grade of 2.0 (“C”) but must have a total cumulative GPA of 2.8 to be accepted for transfer to GIAL.
