Academics

Upon the successful completion of each course, the student will be awarded a certificate. Those who do not earn a passing grade will not receive a certificate but will not be held back from future courses. However, credit earned toward the Certificate of Biblical Studies, the Certificate of Historical and Biblical Theology, and Certificate of Practical Theology can be applied only with passing grades. Those who complete all three certificate levels will receive the Diploma of Biblical Studies.

Should the student not desire to take a final exam, no certificate will be issued, and no credit will be given for that particular course. Notification must be submitted in writing stating that the final exam will not be taken. It will be placed in the student’s permanent file.
