Transfer of Credits

NCBC will transfer previous college credit toward either of its two degrees programs.  For the two-year degree, up to 45 quarter units (30 semester units) can be transferred.  For the four-year degree, up to 135 quarter units (90 semester units) can be transferred.

Students who already possess a four-year degree from another college will find it easy to earn an additional four-year Bachelor degree in Biblical Studies.  NCBC can transfer up to three years of qualifying prior credit, meaning that the student need only take 45 quarter units (15 classes) from NCBC to receive their additional degree.  “Qualifying prior credit” means that the course work falls into on the following categories that have relevance to Christian Ministry:  Psychology, Socialogy, Natural Science, Computer Science, Accounting, English, History, Language, Philosophy, Communication, Business, Graphic Design and Music.  Students who already possess their two-year degree (or comparable amount of units) need only take 90 quarter units (30 classes) to receive their four-year degree.

Students with more than 90 units, but less than 135 units can also transfer those units, assuming they meet the stated requirements:
 
TRANSFERABLE UNITS MUST:

  1. If units come from a college in California, that school must be approved by the Bureau for Private Postsecondary Education unless special arrangements have been made with the school in question.
  2. If units come from a college out of the state of California, the school must be recognized by that state’s department of higher education. Schools in question will be reviewed by the Academic Committee.
  3. Units must be considered “general education” in nature, or related to one of the social sciences, directly or indirectly related to the field of ministerial arts.
  4. Be verified by the appropriate sealed transcript.


GENERAL EDUCATION REQUIREMENTS:
For a student to be granted an Associate of Arts degree in Biblical Studies, they must have completed 24 quarter units of general education.
