ADC welcomes enquiries from people who have taken post-secondary courses at other recognized schools. Applicants may request that up to one half of the credit hours required to complete a degree or program at Acadia Divinity College be transferred from approved institutions. However, no more than 15 of these credit hours can be earned via internet-based courses.

Applicants need to submit the appropriate course description(s) along with the official transcript to the Registrar in order to request assessment as part of their application process. If the Academic Dean and the Registrar deem the course(s) to be acceptable for transfer, the Registrar will provide written approval.


We accept transfer students into our D.Min. program. If you have completed some doctoral studies at another recognized seminary or university and are considering transferring to Acadia, we would be pleased to review your transcript and discuss with you what you would need to complete in order to earn an Acadia D.Min. Contact the Program Director, Dr. John McNally, to arrange for an individual consultation.

Transfer students are eligible for scholarships.
