Transferring credit to other schools
Our students have gone on to excel at four-year colleges and universities across the United States and Canada. Because of RBC’s accreditation with the Association for Biblical Higher Education (see the directory of member schools), many have transferred most, if not all, of their credits to schools like Eastern Mennonite University, Wheaton College, The Ohio State University, Houghton College, and Huntington University. An articulation agreement is in place with Bluffton University, and lists of course equivalents have been compiled in cooperation with the academic offices of Bethel College (Mishawaka, IN), Columbia International University, and Ohio Christian University.
Most Christian universities and colleges and many public universities accept RBC credits. The academic office has compiled a list of public and private colleges that have accepted RBC credits.
Transferring students should be aware of the distinction between acceptance and applicability of transferred credits. For example, during the enrollment process, some institutions may accept credits for transfer, but those credits may not decrease the number of courses required to complete a program if they are not applicable to program requirements. This is especially significant for technical or other programs with requirements that leave little room for electives.
NOTICE: Transferability of credits is never guaranteed. Students are encouraged to communicate with the school to which they hope to transfer credit.

Transferring credit from other schools
Credits may be transferred to RBC from colleges and institutions on a case-by-case basis as approved by the academic dean and as they apply toward completing a program of study at RBC. Students desiring to transfer academic credits from other institutions must request an official transcript from the other school be sent to RBC. Credits must be at or above a grade level of “C” to be eligible for transfer. Grades for courses taken at other colleges and transferred to RBC are not included in the RBC cumulative GPA.
Credits from accredited colleges and institutions are automatically eligible for transfer (if they apply toward a program of study at RBC). To determine course equivalencies, the academic dean may consult course descriptions and syllabi.
Credits from non-accredited colleges and institutions may be transferred on a provisional basis. Course syllabi, faculty credentials, and grading standards may be reviewed to determine course equivalencies. Transfer is finalized once a student has completed 12 semester hours at RBC with a GPA of at least 2.0.
Limited credits may be accepted for validated participation in approved discipleship/missions programs of at least six months' duration operated by approved agencies. To learn more, see the guiding policy.
To graduate from RBC with the associate degree, the student must complete at least eighteen credit hours at RBC.
