The agreement between the Philosophy and Religion department of the Religious Studies program and UTS allows upper division students in the Religious Studies program at Medgar Evers to register for courses at the Seminary to be transferred and applied toward their BA in Religious Studies degree program. Requirements include:
    • Medgar Evers students must have a minimum C grade in Religious Studies courses: 2.5 GPA
    • Total transfer credits granted toward the BA degree will be based on individual evaluation and review of the student’s transcript.
    • Total additional credits required at the senior college to complete the BA degree are also based on total number of credits accepted.

The federal government requires only institutions with first-time, full-time undergraduate students to report retention and graduation rates. UTS is a professional, exclusively graduate institution of higher education, and therefore this data is not available.

For its graduate degree programs the following chart depicts the time to completion for the most recent three academic years:

The Academic Dean administers and coordinates services for those graduate students with special needs.

UTS maintains campus security through a schedule of closing hours and a night patrol. The campus buildings meet local fire-safety codes, and there are regular fire inspections and fire drills. No crimes or instances of sexual harassment were reported on either the Barrytown or Extension Center campus in the 2020 - 2021 academic year.  See also the Annual Security and Fire Safety Report, and "Campus Security" on College Navigator.

Campus Safety is a 24-hour service on the Barrytown campus. When an emergency safety, security (or after-hours maintenance) problem occurs, students can call Campus Safety at x211. If a stranger is around the building without cause, or if they feel unsafe for any reason, Campus Safety is available.
