Advanced Standing

Dallas Theological Seminary's new Advanced Standing program lets you reduce the length of your degree by up to 1 year (or 25%) using qualifying credits from your undergraduate work (at ABHE and CCCU schools) or parachurch training (e.g., Cru, YoungLife). 

The chart below gives an overview of how many credits you can earn based on the degree program and campus you choose.
