The PRTS Transfer Program is available to applicants who have been accepted into graduate programs at both RBS and Puritan Reformed Theological Seminary (PRTS). Students who desire to continue their education after RBS are encouraged to consider this unique partnership with PRTS, since their programs are accredited by ATS. The student is not required to complete a degree at RBS, and may transfer a maximum of 20 pre-approved (below) credits to either a M.A. or M.Div. at PRTS.

* A BA or BS is required for acceptance into the PRTS Transfer Program, as it is only available for students who simultaneously gain acceptance into a MA or MDiv program at PRTS and this graduate-level program at RBS. Please note that PRTS does not award the same amount of credits for each class as does RBS. The credit amounts indicated on this page (in parentheses) indicate the amount of credits that PRTS awards the student and apply only to the PRTS Transfer Program. Some of these same courses count for more credit by RBS in other RBS programs. PRTS will accept no more than 20 credits, and only from the courses listed above.
** If the student takes Greek I and II at RBS, he must pass a language placement exam at PRTS to be granted these 6 credits.
