Transferring Religious Studies and Theology Courses 
Religious studies and theology courses transfer if they are not doctrinal, confessional, or sectarian in nature. Religious studies courses from public institutions transfer without special review; religious studies courses from all other institutions must be reviewed by faculty of the Religious Studies Program.

Contact your academic advisor to request a review.
