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 Religious Studies Program faculty.
To request a review of a course, follow the instructions for transfer credit evaluation.
