Students at Central may apply course work from other institutions to their degree. Credits transferred do not affect a student’s GPA at Central, but are used to determine class standing (Freshman, Sophomore, Junior, Senior). Students who have received college credit via dual credit in high school courses or from other college courses are required to have the college granting credit to send a transcript before any credit can be applied at Central.
Credits which are earned at accredited institutions and apply to a program at Central are fully accepted, provided that the grade for the course is a C- or above. Comparable credits earned at non-accredited institutions may be accepted provisionally, subject to validation by the student satisfactorily completing 15 hours work at Central with a C (2.00) average.
Central may accept up to 15 hours of Credit for Prior Learning (CPL) if it has been transcripted by an accredited college and applies to a CCCB degree.
Central Christian College of the Bible may choose to accept a maximum of 30 hours of accredited correspondence credit toward a degree, providing that it applies to the College’s degree requirements and is accompanied by a transcript from an accredited college.
Central accepts Advanced Placement (AP) scores of 3 or higher for college credit in place of general studies courses.
