Frequently Asked Questions

Q:When is the last day to apply for the Graduate Studies program?
A: You can apply for the program any time. After you receive a letter of acceptance from the Admissions Office you can start taking courses.

Q: Can I take courses without applying for the program?
A: You can take one course [module] before applying for or being accepted into the program. You must apply for and be accepted into the program prior to the second course. Note that taking one course before applying does not guarantee that you are accepted into the program.

Q: Do I need to apply for the program if I'm planning to audit the courses?
A: You do not need to apply for the program but you need to register as an audit student for each module separately. Registration forms are available here.

Q: If I am accepted into the program, do I still have to register for individual courses?
A: Yes. Registration forms for individual courses are available here.

Q: How long are the courses?
A: The length of the individual courses varies from course to course. Basic components include, but are not limited to, the following: independent reading, lectures, research and writing/presentations. The usual length of one course is 5 to 7 weeks, which includes 20 hours of contact time with the professor (usually classroom time). The length of an intensive course varies from 3 to 6 days.

Q: Can I transfer credits from Summit's Graduate Studies program to another university/seminary?
A:Our courses are accredited by The Association of Biblical Higher Education (ABHE), which ensures the academic quality and standards of our courses. However, it is always the prerogative of the receiving university/seminary to determine whether or not to accept transfer credits, and which credits will transfer. Our partner university (Southeastern University) automatically accepts credits from our program towards their MA in Ministerial Leadership degree program; ACTS Seminaries accepts them towards their Master of Divinity and MA in Christian Studies degree programs; Regent College accepts 14 credits out of 15 toward their Master of Divinity degree program.

Q: Can I transfer credits from another university/seminary in order to receive the Graduate Certificate in Pentecostal Studies from Summit?
A: This is possible if the transfer credits are from another Pentecostal graduate-level school. However, there are restrictions on how many credits can be transferred. These decisions are made on a case by case basis.

Q: When do I need to pay for the courses that I'm planning to take?
A: You need to pay for each individual course prior to the start of the course.
