COURSE LOAD & STUDY DURATION

When students register for courses, they must consider how soon they wish to graduate from the program and the costs involved with the course load for each semester. Spirit & Life Seminary recommends that students desiring to maintain a full-time course load take two courses per session. Students who register for less than the full-time course load each semester will take longer to complete the program. It is the recommendation of Spirit & Life Seminary that students accepted into the program be prepared to commit to at least a part-time course load (one course per session/two courses per semester).

FULL TIME STUDENT

The certificate program is designed across seven (7) semesters for a duration of two and a half years. The program of 66 credit hours is divided with the expectation that a full- time student (taking 12 hours per semester) will complete the following course of study:

YEAR ONE
Fall Semester – 2 Sessions
Spring Semester – 2 Sessions
Summer Semester – 1 Session

YEAR TWO
