Credit Earned By Teaching
Any approved graduate-level or professional-level course taught by a student of the Foundation, prior to or during studies at the Foundation, will be evaluated as a course taken and will earn the student one Unit of Study. A graduate course taught is a graduate course earned for a Foundation degree. Undergraduate courses taught by a graduate student of the Foundation may, in certain circumstances, be evaluated for possible graduate credit upon petition by the student to the Foundation.
Transfer of Academic Credit
Work recently undertaken prior to entry into the program may be accepted toward fulfillment of degree requirements. The guidelines for transferring credit are as follows:
the work must have been completed within the past five years (longer periods considered upon petition);
the work must not have been applied toward another degree; and
the work must not have been audited but have been taken for credit with fulfillment of all the course requirements.
NOTE: The Foundation accepts academic work from regionally accredited and/or denominationally sponsored/approved institutions.
