Can I transfer online courses to another school?

Online courses are accredited just as any other Golden Gate Seminary course. In general, this accreditation should allow them to be transferred to another school or seminary. However, each school has its own policies, so you should confirm transfer courses with the school to which you are transfering. Note that your transcript will not indicate whether or not your courses were taken on campus or online.
