Great Northern University will accept transfer credit from regionally, nationally, and internationally accredited colleges, including colleges accredited by the Association of Biblical Higher Education (ABHE). GNU also accepts credits from international institutions that are state chartered or recognized by their respective Ministry of Education/ Higher Education or covered by the European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System (ECTS) through the Bologna Process.
A grade of "C" or higher must be achieved in all transferred courses to count toward the degree. Grade requirements for all other transfer credit hours must meet program grade requirements equal to those applied to non-transfer students at GNU in order to transfer and count toward the degree.
Limited credit from non-accredited institutions of higher education may be applied to the degree requirements on a course-by-course basis after careful review of applicability to degree program, typically using credit-by-examination. All courses accepted from nationally accredited or non-accredited institutions must carry a grade of "C" (2.0) or better.
For more details about our transfer process, see our Academic Catalog.
Great Northern University has an articulation agreement with Montana Wilderness School of the Bible for the transfer of credits to and from Great Northern University. Please contact our Registrar for more information.
