King will accept up to 76 credits for all bachelor’s degrees. And our reverse articulation agreements with community colleges mean that students can complete degree requirements at King while earning credit toward their associate degree.
The admissions office considers transfer students on the basis of their previous college work. To complete a transfer application, students must submit official transcripts from all the institutions of higher education they have attended. All transfer students must meet the residency requirement of 24 King University credits to receive a degree.
Students who have earned fewer than 30 semester hours (or the equivalent) must meet the following requirements:
- A minimum of a 2.2 college GPA on a 4.0 scale and the equivalent of 45 semester hours or an associate degree.
- Students with less than a 2.2 GPA may be considered and accepted on a conditional basis provided they are able to demonstrate a significant rationale as to why they feel they will succeed in the program.
- A completed “Plan of Study” to document how those students who need extra courses to meet the required 124 semester hoursfor graduation will earn additional credits.
- Students with 45 hours or more may apply for admission; however, they must meet with a King University Student Support Specialist to develop a specific written plan that outlines how they will complete the program. This plan must be in place after acceptance, but prior to registration.
- Completed application, transcript form, and all previous transcripts application, transcript form, and all previous transcripts
Transfer Credit Evaluation
The Registrar’s Office evaluates students who have 30 or more semester hours of credit based solely on previous college work. King evaluates credits from previously attended colleges or universities on institutional accreditation, level, content, quality, comparability and program relevance. King University grants semester hour equivalence for transfer coursework of C or better and allows only work with grades of C- or better to apply toward graduation requirements. Students with 45 hours or more may apply for admission; however, they must meet virtually with a King University Student Success Specialist to develop a specific plan that will outline how they will complete the program. This plan must be in place after acceptance, but prior to registration.
