Can I Transfer Credits I have Earned from my WSB Diploma into a Bachelor’s Degree?

If you choose to pursue a Bachelor of Science in Religion at a later time, all 60 credit hours earned in the WSB program may be transferred to the degree program as a mix of foundational biblical studies and electives so that you only need 60 additional credit hours of accredited online course content. Transfer credit would best fit into a Bachelor’s degree in Religion but can be used in any of Liberty’s Undergraduate degrees. Undergraduate credit from other programs cannot be applied to Willmington School of the Bible.
