Misc Admission Requirements

The student must submit a $35 application fee and appropriate college transcripts. Students wishing to re-enroll after an absence of three or more years must complete the enrollment process again.

Transfer Students
Transfer students applying for admission from another college must complete all forms and deposits required of first time applicants following the Grace University enrollment process. In addition, these candidates must submit an official transcript from the college(s) attended. Transcripts submitted to Grace University for admission or credit transfer become the property of Grace University and cannot be returned to the student or forwarded to other institutions.

Limited Enrollment Applicants
Limited enrollment applicants are those students:

  • Enrolling in less than 22 credit hours total
  • And/or those students auditing a class

Students who meet these requirements, must submit the following in order to register

  • Limited Enrollment Application (E-Z App)*
  • $35 Application fee
  • High School Transcript

Applicants Whose First Language Is Not English
Any applicant who does not speak English as a first language must complete the following along with the general enrollment process :

  • Complete the TOEFL regardless of age, gender, or residency status.
  • Complete an interview (either in person or over the telephone) with the ESL Coordinator or another faculty member (i.e., with inter-cultural experience and/or significant foreign language skills) to assess verbal comprehension as it relates to English language skills.

Note: Applicants who have lived in an English-speaking country for several years will not be considered exempt from the above requirements if English is not their first language.

International Students
Due to requirements put in place under the United States Government, there are several forms which must be submitted to the University before an international candidate is considered for acceptance.

In addition to the general admission requirements, all international students must also:

  • Complete the TOEFL regardless of age, gender, or residency status.
  • Gain a minimum TOEFL score of 550 on the paper-based exam, 217 on the computer-based exam and 81-82 on the Internet-Based Test (IBT). The Test of Written English is not required (except for students studying nursing with Clarkson).
  • Pay the estimated cost for the first year at Grace, including tuition, room and board, books, and other normal educational and personal expenses. This amount must be paid in full at least 20 days prior to the beginning of the semester. If you have any questions, please contact the Admissions Office at 402.449.2831.

Advanced Standing
Students who have completed work in another college or university may apply for advanced standing upon the presentation of an official transcript from the institution previously attended.

Work done is evaluated on the following basis:

  • Full credit is granted for courses completed at an accredited institution, provided such courses are applicable to the programs at Grace University and are completed with “C” or above.
  • Credits from non-accredited institutions are evaluated on an individual basis. Criteria for acceptance may include an evaluation of the institution, course faculty, and course syllabus. Such credits are typically counted towards a program when a student has completed 30 credits at a “C” average or better.
  • Credit for educational experiences in the armed services is based upon suggested credit recommendations in A Guide to the Evaluation of Educational Experiences in the Armed Services or on the basis of transcripts from service schools, (e.g., Community College of the Air Force). Such credit transfer must meet all other requirements for credit transfer.

Students who have graduated from Christian high schools may be excused from equivalent 100 series Bible subjects, provided the grades were “B” or above and they secure an acceptable score on the Bible Content test. While students receive no actual college credit for these subjects, it enables them to concentrate on more advanced subjects. Permission is secured from the Academic Vice-President and the chair of the department in which the student is enrolled.
