The ACSI Credentialing and Renewal Program at Indiana Wesleyan University is a non-degree, non-certificate program that provides graduate level coursework to individuals seeking to obtain an Association for Christian Schools International (ACSI) standard teaching credential or renewal. The program consists of seven (7) credit hours for individuals seeking to teach in a domestic ACSI member school and ten (10) credit hours for individuals seeking to teach in an international ACSI member school. The required coursework satisfies all criteria established for an ACSI standard teaching credential (i.e., six credit hours of Bible coursework and one credit hour of Christian philosophy). Individuals teaching in an international ACSI member school complete an additional three-credit-hour course on faith integration. There is no field experience required for this program.
Indiana Wesleyan University provides all required coursework for the ACSI standard teaching credential through an accelerated, online learning system utilizing our adult learning cohort model. The program takes approximately six months to complete for individuals teaching in a domestic ACSI member school and approximately 10 months to complete for individuals teaching in an international ACSI member school. Individuals teaching in any ACSI member school receive a 20% tuition discount. IWU’s program allows individuals to earn graduate-level credits while satisfying the criteria established by ACSI for the standard teaching credential.
