Residence Requirements


Every student pursuing a four-year degree at Maranatha is required to satisfactorily complete a minimum of 128 hours, including the core of 24 semester hours in Biblical Studies, the General Studies Core, and a major, in order to qualify for a degree. Students pursuing a four-year or two-year program must complete a minimum of 30 semester hours while in residence at the College. At least one half of the credit hours in the major field and the last semester of the final year must be completed in residence at Maranatha, creating residence requirements. A maximum of six semester hours of credit may be transferred back to Maranatha during the final 30 credits and applied to a degree.
