MDIV - Program Requirements
Progression Policy - Students must have completed all core courses before enrolling in MDIV-695. Registration in MDIV-695 will be cancelled for any students who fail to satisfactorily complete all core courses. All requirements for the degree must be completed within ten years of enrollment.
Residency Requirement - The default expectation of the M.Div. program is to take at least 18 credit hours of the degree in intensive onsite courses. The student can then take the remainder of the program (57 credit hours) either online or onsite. Intensive courses are offered around a weekend of yearly convocation, during which all students and faculty in the program come to campus.
Transfer Credit - A maximum of 27 hours may be transferred from another accredited master's program, provided it falls within seven years prior to admission.
Bible Content Exam - Students in the M.Div. program must pass the Bible Content exam with a 70% or higher prior to taking SPIR-540 Goal Setting and Accountability. Students who fail to achieve a sufficient score on the exam will be automatically withdrawn from future courses until such time as they pass the exam.
