Taking Seminary Courses for Audit/Non-Credit
Most of our courses may be taken for audit rather than for credit. Auditing a course is the same as taking a course for enrichment. The audit student is not required to complete any of the assigned material for the course, and any material completed may not be graded depending on the availability and discretion of the professor.
Courses taken for audit/non-credit do not count towards any degree or certificate program. If the student wishes to convert an audited course to a credit course, he or she must request to do so before the last class meeting for the course. The student must have timely completed all assigned material, pay the difference in tuition and fees due for credit, and otherwise comply with all applicable requirements of the seminary and the professor. Further, conversion of a course taken for audit to a credit course is ultimately at the discretion of the professor teaching the course and the Vice President of Academic Affairs.
