Transferring credits to CLU
Christian Leadership University will accept credits toward a CLU degree from the following sources:
- Official transcripts from other educational institutions including church-centered
Bible schools and schools of ministry, community colleges, technical schools,
colleges, universities, and seminaries will be evaluated. Courses with A and B grades
will be accepted when they maintain a course content that is complementary
to the degree being sought at CLU. Credits transferred are limited to half
of the credits required for the CLU degree.
ALL completed courses for which the course syllabus is copyrighted
Ministries” or “Lamad Curriculum Developers LLC” will be accepted
by transcript, without limitation to the number of credits being transferred,
provided all work required in the course
was completed and an “A” or a “B” was earned on the course.
In this case, a minimum of one three-credit course from the Renewal concentration
must be taken directly with CLU for each degree sought. All CLU graduates must
take REN103 or REN503. If the student has already taken all the Renewal courses
CLU offers, he may pick a 3 credit course from the Ministry, Counseling or
- Life experience credits may be earned by the student completing and submitting
a Life Experience Portfolio to CLU. See further details at: www.cluonline.com/portfolio.
Students may be taking courses with CLU while they are taking courses at other educational institutions.
Degrees are awarded when the following criteria are met:
- Associate's degree – 60 credits
- Bachelor's degree – 60 credits beyond the Associate's degree
- Master's degree – 40 credits beyond the Bachelor's degree
- Doctoral degree – 40 or 60 credits beyond the Master's degree
Flexibility is the rule when it comes to exactly which courses are to be taken. The guiding principle is to follow your heart's passions and desires, as God has put them there. The degree awarded will be titled according to the major concentration of courses taken.
Concentrations include: Biblical Studies, Christian Arts, Christian Counseling,
Christian Entrepreneurship, Christian Leadership, Divine Healing, Intercession,
Ministry, Missions and Evangelism, Prophetic Ministry, Theology, Worship Ministry,
a Divinity degree on the Master's and Doctoral levels.
How to begin
When seeking to transfer credits, begin by completing the New Student
Application Form at www.cluonline.com/apply. ($25) You may then have
official transcripts sent to CLU for evaluation and transfer to a CLU
transcript. Transfer of credits to a CLU transcript will cost from $25
to $75 depending on the number of credits being transferred.
Credit Transfer to Other Institutions
Students desiring transfer of CLU credits into another college should contact
that college directly to determine if it will receive CLU credits. As is
true of all schools, transferability of credits earned at CLU is at the
discretion of the receiving institution.
These degrees are generally not transferable into colleges or universities
which have accreditation recognized by the U.S. Department of Education.
It should be noted that CLU uses the “semester credit” measurement.
Our courses are designed to be completed in 12 weeks rather than the
normal 16-week semester.
It is generally easier to transfer an entire degree to another school
rather than part of a degree.
