Students attending Intensive Classes can sign up for one of two levels of class work.
To receive a Certificate of Completion, a student must complete six courses. At least four of these courses must be in-person intensive courses in which the student is registered as a Certificate student; two may be directed studies or online courses offered by Theopolis. To qualify for Certificate credit, an online course must be supplemented by required reading and a writing assignment. After completing six courses, the student must submit a final paper, which may be an expansion of a course paper, and submit to a public defense of his paper.
Adults or students who have completed at least two years of college qualify to take certificate courses. Students who are not pastors must submit a letter of recommendation from a pastor or session of the local church of which they are members. When a student has completed six intensive courses, he or she will submit to a comprehensive oral examination.* Two of the six courses may be fulfilled through distance learning, which includes independent studies and/or online courses offered by Theopolis. Those who pass the oral examination will receive a Certificate of Completion from the Theopolis Institute. Each course costs $500 for certificate students.
Non-Certificate Program: Non-certificate students are free to attend lectures, participate in worship, and engage in informal discussions. Each course is $300 for non-certificate students.
Eligible churches may receive student tuition waivers under certain conditions as described in our Supporting Church Tuition Waiver Policy.
Theopolis Institute admits students of any race, color, national and ethnic origin to all the rights, privileges, programs, and activities generally accorded or made available to students at the school. It does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national and ethnic origin in administration of its educational policies, admissions policies or scholarship programs.
*This requirement was added in July 2016. For those who entered the Certificate Program earlier than that date, the oral examination is voluntary.
