Grace College of Divinity accepts credit for courses when students received a letter grade of “C” or higher, providing GCD offers an equivalent course. The issuing institution must send official transcripts directly to the GCD Enrollment Office. Determination of transfer credit will be at the discretion of the Academic Office.

Applicants with previously earned degrees may transfer up to 60 credit hours and enter into a degree completion program upon request.

Applicants seeking admission for any degree or certificate program must submit the following documents:

  • A completed Application Form (apply online)
  • A non-refundable application fee of $50.00
  • Official high school transcripts or G.E.D. (if applicant has never attended college); applicants who have previously attended a college must submit official college transcripts from all institutions attended
