Requirements for Graduation

You may complete the M.A.R. or M.A. degrees by modules and online classes. Part of the M.Div. curriculum requirements are offered only in traditional, semester-length courses, but you may complete some of the curriculum requirements in modular format. If you are in the M.A.R. or M.A. programs, you must take at least three modules that are taught by members of the resident faculty. After completing nine credits, you must apply to a degree program and be assigned a resident faculty advisor. Students who fail to apply to a degree program will not be allowed to put additional credits (i.e., beyond the nine-credit limit) toward any degree program. Therefore, you should apply to a degree program when or before you reach the nine-credit limit.

Cost
Modules and online courses are $315 per credit hour (until June 30, 2015; after that date $325) with a $25 education fee per credit hour. A person may take any course as a conference audit for a fee of $100. Payment is due on the first day of the class.

Housing Information
On-campus housing is available for module students on a limited basis ($50 per adult for Sunday through Friday 12:00 p.m.). Reservations are accepted on a first-come basis. You may check in Sunday evening or Monday morning. Bedding and towels are furnished. Laundry facilities are available. Rooms may be shared by other module students. Please observe the reserved parking spaces. To reserve guest housing, contact our Housing Department at 515-964-0601, ext. 203.
