Applicants for the Barclay Online program must meet the following requirements:

Prior completion of approximately 50-60 semester credits from an accredited college/ post secondary institution: only courses which carry a grade of "C" or better will be accepted for transfer. Cumulative college GPA of 2.0. Completion of the Barclay Online application form. Submission of an official high school transcript or GED certificate. Submission of official transcripts from all colleges/post secondary institutions previously attended. Submission of two satisfactory personal references (one work related, e.g. a supervisor; and one personal, e.g. an educator, minister, civic organization or community leader). Note: Interested students who do not meet all of the normal requirements for admission may be admitted on a provisional basis at the discretion of the college.

Transfer Credits

In the acceptance of transfer credits the college will be guided by the prescribed policy of the Association for Biblical Higher Education (ABHE). Credits are accepted for relevant subjects from accredited members of ABHE and from other schools accredited by recognized regional, national, and professional agencies on the basis of the equivalency for work of a C grade or higher. Credits from non-accredited, non‑member schools are accepted only on the basis of sound validation. Final validation of transcripts of transfer students from non‑accredited schools will be withheld until satisfactory completion of approximately 30 semester hours at Barclay College. Only credits are transferred in so that the grade of the transferred class does not count toward the cumulative GPA.


The costs at Barclay College are much less than similar private Christian colleges. In addition, students are eligible for financial aid. Students find that Barclay's outstanding quality and reasonable costs add up to a great education value. Tuition and fee schedules may be adjusted from year to year as necessary. All existing bills from any current semester must be paid in full by the end of that semester, before a student can register for the next semester.
