Partner Institutions

Students wishing to take advantage of this opportunity should follow the procedures detailed in Section 6, Customizing the Standard Program, subsection Learning Opportunities Outside of RRC.  

United Lutheran Seminary

RRC students in good standing are eligible to register for courses at the master’s level. A student interested in a course is responsible to contact the ULS Registrar’s office to ensure that the course is open for enrollment and that the student has satisfied any pre-requisites of the course. It may be necessary in some cases for the student to obtain permission from the course instructor(s). The student is to obtain a course description for the course and assurance of the amount of academic credit awarded. Upon confirmation of the ULS registrar, the student will register the course at RRC ideally three weeks before the start of the course. Tuition will be paid by ULS. Any additional course costs or fees for services by ULS are the responsibility of the student. Upon successful completion of the course, the ULS registrar will submit the student’s final grade to RRC for student credit. 

Transfer of Credits from Other Institutions

Students are encouraged to take advantage of learning opportunities outside of the College that are appropriate to their interests and complement their coursework. Students pursuing learning experiences outside the College must fulfill at least 72 credits through study at the College.

Students may petition to be granted equivalency credit for graduate courses taken at other institutions if the courses correspond to the College’s course requirements. If, during the program, students wish to earn credit through an experience outside of the College that is not a standard academic course, they must obtain approval from the Faculty Executive Committee.
