Dear Student Applicant:
Thank you for applying to Northwestern Theological Seminary.
If accepted for enrollment, you will engage in a very effective and efficient educational program that will provide your educational credentials as a Christian professional. At Northwestern, we seek to eliminate redundancy in education which allows you to focus on specific subjects relative to your degree field in a 100% online learning environment. We want you to be enabled to remember what you study for future application in ministry and career. We do this through a process called the "analytical process of applied education," developed by our founder, Dr. Howard M. Sarkela.
The following is VERY important information regarding your application and enrollment process with Northwestern Theological Seminary. We recommend that you carefully review the information provided below and print this page for future reference.

WHAT HAPPENS NOW
If you are currently enrolled in another school, nothing prevents you from earning two degrees simultaneously from separate colleges or seminaries. For example: You can begin a doctorate degree study at NTS now, even though you are currently completing a Master degree program elsewhere, or you can enroll now in a Master degree program at NTS while still completing your Bachelor degree elsewhere. However, your qualifying degree and transcripts must be provided prior to graduation at NTS. This is a common practice and allowed by most colleges, universities and seminaries. Even High school students are allowed to enroll and take college or university courses before graduating from high school.
Once enrolled, your faculty advisor will provide your educational plan, and work with you as your educational guide leading to the attainment of your degrees. You will be required to provide a copy of any prior diploma or degree award along with appropriate transcripts, prior to graduation and receiving your degree from NTS Seminary.
At enrollment, you will be setup on the NTSMoodle Course Management System. After completing your Orientation on the system, your assigned advisor will contact you with your program. If you will be transferring credits from previous education, your faculty advisor will require a list of educational courses which you have taken and a description of any appropriate ministry and life experience information relating to your degree field, in order to get you started while we wait on your transcripts and documentation. Therefore, based on your own written description of the courses that you may have already taken, you will be able to begin your degree program before we receive your actual transcripts and documentation. However, while not an urgent requirement, such documentation must be provided prior to graduation and award of your degree.
Due to the high demand for our programs and because our staff reviews the files of every student that is accepted for admittance, please be patient as it is currently taking from 1 to 3 business days to respond to accepted Seminary applicants. Also, keep in mind that Administrative offices are closed on weekends and holidays.
COMPLETING YOUR ENROLLMENT
Option A. enrollments require a 50% payment to complete enrollment and the remaining 50% balance is to be paid prior to graduation.
*NO Initial Payment is Required for Option B. enrollments. However Option B. enrollments do require that the 30-day PayPal autro debit be set up promptly, once you receive your formal acceptance e-mail. *There are NO interest charges.
Upon notification of acceptance, you may then proceed to submit your initial payment or set up your PayPal 30-day auto debit by opening the Seminary's 'Donations' page located at the Seminary website. The direct link to the 'Donations' page is: http://www.NorthwesternSeminary.com/Donations.htm
It is very important that you reply to the NTS Registrar's e-mailed acceptance package promptly and do your best to complete your enrollment within the 14-day enrollment period, or as soon as possible. As a Christ centered educational ministry we will cooperate with any request for an extension of the enrollment period due to extenuating circumstances, your education is our priority. However, all Plan B students should set up the PayPal 30-day auto debit as soon as possible to complete enrollment and begin your student orientation as soon as possible.
NOTE: Students who enroll with Plan A 50/50, are not required to make monthly payments and if the enrollment is completed within 14 days, you will also receive a $500 discount off of their remaining Love Offer balance at graduation.
Your Tuition/ Love Offer is a form of donation in lieu of regular tuition. However, it is not considered as a charitable donation for tax purposes.
If not approved, it could be due to missing information on your application or your acceptance can be pending a request for additional information made by the Registrar's Office. However, if you submitted an application without the initial required information as specified on the application, your application will automatically be rejected.
IMPORTANT: In either case, you should contact the Registrar's Office if you have not received a response to your application within 48 hours at: Registrar@NorthwesternMail.com

HELP US KEEP OUR STUDENT COSTS TO A MINIMUM:
* Option B Students: 97% of students help NTS keep costs to a minimum by selecting the convenience of automatic credit card or checking account debit payments. Only about 3% of students (mostly overseas students) choose to make manual monthly payments by check, credit card, money order etc. As an added savings, Northwestern Theological Seminary does not charge interest on monthly payment plans. However, if you choose not to enroll in the auto-debit payment plan, NTS must charge a small administrative processing fee to offset the cost of paying staff to do manual processing of payments each month. Almost all Colleges and Universities require automatic debit only. Further instructions on setting up your automatic debit payment plan will be given in your Enrollment Thank You e-mail after your initial enrollment payment has been completed.
