Bible Requirements for Transfers


Transfer students who first enroll at Northwestern as sophomores, juniors, or seniors are to fulfill the core curriculum requirement on a proportional basis.

Theological study session with students

For purposes of administering the core curriculum requirement, class standing of transfer students is based on the total of “transferable” credits from all colleges and universities previously attended (see definition on page 26 of theCourse Catalog) and credits awarded by University of Northwestern on the basis of examinations taken before matriculation.

Transfer students seeking a bachelor’s degree are required to complete the core curriculum, but the following listing indicates the proportional requirements based on the student’s class standing. Request for course substitution should be submitted to the Chair of the Department of Biblical & Theological Studies.
