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.
