Credits

Students enrolled in the guest student program may take no more than five hours per semester and a maximum of 15 cumulative hours. When a student reaches 15 hours, he or she must complete a regular application for admission and will be considered a degree-seeking student at that time.

Students will receive regular college credit for all courses. If a “C” or higher is earned, the credit may be transferred to other colleges and universities. The credit may also be used toward any Goshen College degree program.
