Transfer applicants are welcome at Trinity. Approximately one-third of the new students each year are transfers. A graduate of a Bible institute or community college with a breadth of courses may wish to consider the General Studies major, an interdisciplinary program that allows entrance to advanced areas of study.

Once accepted to TIU, transfer work will be evaluated. (Those wishing an evaluation sooner should make that request to the Admissions Office.) Though practicing a fairly liberal transfer policy, the university reserves the right to accept only courses that are equivalent in content, objectives, and extent to those offered by Trinity. Students may receive credit for subjects not offered at Trinity when approved by the Associate Dean and validated by the University Registrar. For further information see the Transfer Credit Policy.
