What if miss a class in the sequence? Students are encouraged to make every effort to take the established sequence of classes.

If personal or ministry circumstances prevent taking a scheduled class, the students will need to wait until the course is offered again, which may jeopardize the student’s ability to complete the program in three years. The student should note that the on-campus courses will not be offered as regularly as online courses. On-campus classes can not be made up online because of accreditation requirements.
