Transfer of Credits and Exemptions from Required Courses
Students who have completed theological training of a level comparable to that of BGST may be able to transfer credits from their previous coursework. Alternatively, they may be granted exemptions from BGST required courses on the basis of such previously completed coursework. Eligibility will be based on the BGST Credit Transfer Policy. All transfers or exemptions must be specially applied for. There are no automatic transfers or exemptions. Applications should be made in writing to the Registrar and must be accompanied by the relevant transcripts and other documentation. Please note that students may transfer up to a maximum of 1/3 of the Programme he or she has applied for. In view of Trinity Theological College’s partnership with BGST, credit transfer from a postgraduate TTC program will enjoy a maximum limit of 50% of the BGST program a student has applied for.
Assignment Due Dates
For all international students who are on a Student’s Pass, the deadline for submission of assignments is 1 month from the first day of the month following the last lecture.Example: If class ends on June 25, the due date is August 1.
For all other students, the deadline for submission of assignments is 3 months from the first day of the month following the last lecture/ online session. Example: If class ends on June 25, the due date is October 1.
International students may continue to submit assignments no later than the end of the second month, but they will incur a penalty of one third of a grade on the late assignments. Other credit students may also submit their assignments no later than the end of the sixth month, but will incur a similar grade point penalty. After this second deadline (two months for international students, six months for all other students) the course will be converted to Audit automatically.
