Any deficiency in hours must be satisfied by taking appropriate undergraduate courses. Substitution and/or equivalency decisions for prerequisite courses or transfer of any graduate hours must receive the approval of the program director and the Dean.
Provisional admission to either the Master of Arts in Religion or the Master of Arts in Christian Ministry may be granted to applicants who have the program prerequisites, receive the endorsement of the program director, but are deficient in one of the following graduate admission criteria or its equivalent:
The required endorsement may be granted following a review of all relevant factors and when, in the judgment of the program director, there is sufficient evidence to clearly suggest the potential for success in a graduate-level program. An interview may be required at the discretion of the program director. Students granted provisional admission must maintain a 2.75 grade point average during their first nine hours of graduate work to be eligible to receive full admission and continue graduate study. If, after nine hours, a student fails to achieve a 2.75 grade point average, he/she will be ineligible to continue in the program and will be notified in writing.
