Advanced Standing Program

advanced_standing_fullSave Time

Advanced standing credits may be awarded to religion majors and minors from accredited colleges and universities. You can receive a maximum of 18 credits toward the Master of Divinity degree or 12 credits toward a Master of Arts degree.

This will not only save you time and money, it will help you focus on what matters most. By taking advantage of advanced standing, you can receive credit for what you have already achieved, expedite your degree completion, launch into your vocational calling and make your mark on the Kingdom.

Save Money

Over 80% of our student body receives some type of financial assistance. Financial aid is available to assist you in removing the financial barriers of a seminary education. To provide you with the best opportunities, you are encouraged to apply early. The Financial Aid Office will work with you one-on-one to help create a strategy that is right for you.

* Transcripts will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis. If 18 hours of advanced standing credit is awarded, you will only need an additional 78 credit hours to complete the 96 hour Master of Divinity degree. If 12 hours of advanced standing credit is awarded, you will only need an additional 48 credit hours to complete the 60 hour Master of Arts degree.
