Credit Transfer Department
DLSM's transfer department is where we evaluate and anticipate your transfer opportunities within the DLSM Credit Transferring Policy. This is accomplished by two departments; Registrar's Office and the Academic Office. Whether you've previously attended a university, community or Bible college, etc., all transferring credits will be reviewed with credit award determination to follow.
Transcript Submission Guidelines
DLSM only accepts official transcripts from other Bible college, University, Seminary, etc., that are sent directly from the educational institution where credits were earned via anyone of the following methods;
If enrolling in the Bible College or Seminary Associate or Bachelors Program, the student needs to submit their High School Diploma or GED. These transcripts are to be submitted via email or mail following the transcript submission guideline as listed above. If these documents are not available, contact the administrative office so we can assist you in finding resolution. Refer to transcript submission guidelines.
Graduate / Doctoral Studies
If enrolling in Bible College or Seminary Graduate or Doctoral Program, the student needs to submit their transcripts from their highest graduated level. Refer to transcript submission guidelines.
If you are enrolling in the Standard / Individual Course Certificate Program and not seeking a degree, no former education documentation is needed due to all Certificate Programs are categorized as open courses.
Transfer credit determination is the same for all students regardless of the student's location. This allows every learner the opportunity to benefit from credits already achieved.
