"Celebrating 25 Years Of Christian Service" 
 Northwestern Theological Seminary offers the most time efficient and affordable way ever to receive your quality, theologically accredited, Bachelor, Master's and Doctorate Degrees. There is NO Tuition... Our students simply make a Love Offer which SAVES you up to 99% when *compared to traditional Degree programs.*See Application Page.

At Northwestern Theological Seminary, we believe that you have acquired substantial and important skills and education, relevant to your chosen degree path, during your life outside the environment of academic study.  We will evaluate these assets and assign appropriate credits towards your degree if you have pertinent experience relative to the subjects or electives, required in your degree program.

Because you may not recognize these assets, following are some suggestions that may bring them to mind. 

STOP... Be sure to take notes of each experience for which you feel you may qualify for lifetime learning credit.

 Work experience - Many skills you may use at work are also taught in colleges and universities.  These skills may include typing or filing; use of computer programs for word processing or desktop publishing, accounting, inventory or production control; financial management, human resources management, negotiation, communication, retailing, real estate sales or appraisal and scores of others.

 Home management - Consider home maintenance, household planning and budgeting, marriage communications, parenting, time management, organization, counseling and psychology, education, meal planning and nutrition, gourmet cooking and many more.

 Non credited learning in formal settings - Remember company provided training courses, seminars, in-service training, workshops and clinics, conferences and conventions, lectures, courses presented by television or internet, non-credit correspondence courses, etc.

 Discourse with experts Education also includes extended contact and discourse with recognized experts, whether in mechanics, carpentry, medicine, history, bible, theology, religion, education, sports or any other field.  Significant experience working with or intensive meetings with experts in any field may be worth academic credit.

 Independent reading, TV viewing, Video and Audio Tapes - There may be a field, or fields in which you have done substantial reading or study outside of an academic environment.  For example, you may have a passion for reading history or biography.  Record such reading and remember that you can receive credits for having viewed important, educational, series on public television. Video tapes and audio tapes are another source of learning experience.

 Travel - Credits can be applied for study tours, significant business or vacation trips, extended stays in other countries or cultures, or participation in activities related to other countries, cultures or subcultures.

 Volunteer work - Record your participation in community activities, political campaigns, church activities, service organizations, volunteer work in social service agencies or hospitals and other volunteer work.

 Recreation and hobbies - Musical skills and experience, flight training, work in the community, theater, sports, arts and crafts, fiction or nonfiction writing, public speaking, gardening, cultural activities or other significant leisure-time activities are also valuable sources of credit experience.             

CREDIT FOR KNOWLEDGE RELATED TO SPECIFIC SUBJECTS

           You can receive credit for the following subjects by demonstrating your knowledge of each subject for which you have already studied extensively.  Simply provide a very thorough description and documentation, outlining your knowledge in each subject, listed below, which applies to your personal study history. Our advisors will evaluate your outline for each subject, to determine if credit can be awarded, or if additional documentation is required. Be sure to send any documentation, if available, which can support your descriptive outlines.  If your outlines and documentation are not accepted as sufficient cause for award of credits, you may do a thorough research paper to prove your knowledge in any required subject.

If you can state that you have read each book multiple times and that you have a good knowledge of all 66 books of the Protestant Bible, then provide a signed and dated sworn statement as to that fact and you will qualify for credit relative to some courses in your degree fields.

Be sure to list all diplomas and college, university or seminary degrees and other awards or certifications including graduation and award dates for each. 

  Letters of recommendation and letters of witness from others who can state that they have witnessed your performance in different activities which would show skills and prove knowledge in specific areas, will be accepted for credit consideration. Example: letters from People who have witnessed you leading a seminar,  teaching, preaching, leading a meeting, flying an airplane, building a garage, repairing an appliance, book keeping, creating an advertisement, promoting a fundraising, supervising a youth group, managing  a sports team, starting a business. Anything that will show skill or experience in a specific area. 

These letters which verify prior experience can be typed or handwritten, signed and dated by you and then witnessed by someone who can verify that such statements are correct. Use your imagination and make a list of your talents, skills and past performances that prove such life experience. Letters, copies of awards, diplomas, resumes, news paper articles, poetry, writings, art, photographs or any physical documentation should be mentioned on the application and then, copies of same, along with your letters, should be postal mailed to Northwestern Theological Seminary.
