Requirements & Transfer

Candidates for admission to Clear Creek must provide personal references and a church endorsement. Records of active church membership, a history of responsible financial management, a mature Christian character and promise of continued intellectual and spiritual growth are also required. In seeking admission to the college, each candidate agrees to abide by all its rules and regulations. All applicants for admission or readmission must qualify under the following specific requirements:

  • Give evidence of divine call to vocational ministry or Christian service.
  • Have at least one year active church membership before applying.
  • Give evidence of their ability to manage any indebtedness.
  • Must be free from the use of tobacco, narcotics, intoxicants or habit forming drugs in any form.

In order to avoid duplication of academic credit and ensure the integrity of the degree programs at Clear Creek Baptist Bible College the acceptability of academic credit for transfer from other institutions will be restricted to the following circumstances.

  • For credit earned at an institution that is accredited by a CHEA-recognized body, the credit must be of like nature and parallel in content and quality and graded as “C” or better.
  • No credit will be awarded for life experience or professional certificates.
  • No credit for English Composition courses will be accepted without satisfactory completion of the English entrance examination.
  • No credit for courses in doctrine will be accepted from non-Baptist institutions.
  • Credit earned at an institution that is not accredited by a CHEA-recognized body may still be accepted if the above criteria are met and if at least three accredited institutions have accepted transfer credit from the unaccredited institution in question.
  • Credit may be awarded for the satisfactory completion of Advanced Placement (AP) examinations. Satisfactory completion is considered a score of “3” or better. For all natural science AP examinations scored “3” or above three (3) semester hours of lecture credit and one (1) semester hour of laboratory credit will be awarded. For all history AP examinations scored “3” or above six (6) semester hours of credit will be awarded. For all other discipline AP examinations, three (3) semester hours of credit will be awarded in the respective discipline.
  • Credit may be awarded up to a total of 30 hours for an associate’s degree and 60 hours for a baccalaureate degree.

The responsibility for the enforcement of this policy is assigned to the Registrar. Upon receiving an official transcript of an applicant or student the Registrar will use the criteria outlined above to prepare a transcript evaluation. In the case of transcripts from unaccredited institutions, the individual seeking to transfer the credit must submit course syllabi (including book lists) and course catalog (including the credentials of the course instructor) for review to determine “like nature” and “parallel content and quality”. The Registrar will present the evaluation for review to the Dean of Academic Affairs. Upon approval, the Registrar will inform the applicant or student and his or her advisor of the approved transfer and enter it upon his or her transcript with a grade of “S”, excluding it from GPA calculation.

The Clear Creek Seal

Clear Creek’s seal provides a vivid representation of our priorities.

“Above all, taking the shield of faith…” Ephesians 6:16. Clear Creek Baptist Bible College, from its beginning, has existed to provide educational preparation for adults called of God into Christian service. Students in this theological school have taken the shield of faith, burning bridges of security behind them by responding to God’s clarion to prepare for special Christian service.
“I will pour out in those days of my Spirit; and they shall prophesy.” Acts 2:18. The college maintains a special interest in Baptist preachers who have yielded to the call to preach after they have reached mature years. Touched by the Holy Spirit’s tongue of fire, Clear Creek students have exchanged personal ambitions for a torch of knowledge, a desire for an understanding of spiritual truths.
“All Scripture is inspired by God and profitable…” II Timothy 3:16. The school is an adult educational institution maintained to meet a specific need in the program of Southern Baptist education. Students are offered ministerial preparation centered on the study of the Bible.
“I will lift up my eyes unto the hills…” Psalms 121:1. From its founding the school has considered the southern mountain region as its distinctive field and its work is conducted with a view to supplying well-prepared Christian leadership for this area. Although the school’s special ministry centers in the Appalachian regions, students are not limited to these areas. Students come from throughout the Southern Baptist Convention.
“…that in all things He might have the preeminence.” Colossians 1:18. The Cross–and all that word implies–is the center of this school’s life. Christ commands every Christian to bear his cross and to share in the ministry of the gospel.
