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 pre-set Tuition... Our students simply make a Love Offer which SAVES you up to 98% when *compared to traditional Degree programs.*See Application Page.
programs require the following credits for graduation:
Associate - 60 credits
Bachelor - Associate degree plus 60 additional credits
Master - Bachelor degree plus 48 additional credits
Doctorate - Bachelor / Master degree plus 48 additional credits
Length - Each applicant has a unique composite of background,
achievement and life experiences. The
staff of Northwestern will evaluate the applicantís academic and life
experience and then design a program to supplement those assets to create
a path to the sought degree or degrees sought. We have found that many
applicants qualify for the associateís degree and even bachelor level
degrees through experiential knowledge, which is demonstrated by outlining
and documenting past learning experience. The masterís and doctorate,
however, are only acquired through a combination of coursework and
documented experiential knowledge related directly to the specific areas
in which the graduate degrees are being awarded. In the rare exception
that a student has absolutely no educational or life experience credit to
be evaluated, Northwestern, will require the equivalent of a traditional
schoolís credit requirements in time needed to attain sufficient credit
to graduate. For instance, with no experiential or academic credit
applied, 120 credits of instruction will require 4- years of work.
However, this is the exception rather than the norm. Most students who
enroll with Northwestern and provide sufficient experiential information
for credit evaluation are able to achieve their degrees in a very
reasonable amount of time and at a savings of up to 98% in out of pocket
Because each student travels a different
path, and at his own pace, there are no rigid time limits for course
completion. Some may accelerate this process and achieve their degrees
much faster, than through traditional education. Because we do not limit
your schedule, the length of time required to attain your degrees can be
rapidly accelerated and is dependant solely on your own desire and
motivation for rapid achievement.
Entry and Termination policy Ė Because of the fact that we charge no
tuition or other expenses and because all that is required for enrollment
and graduation is a Love Offering in Lieu of Tuition, which may be as much as 98% less
than many universities and seminaries, enrollment is very limited. Therefore, it is very
important that you process your evaluation paperwork and send it back, as
soon as possible to insure acceptance. There is no course year and
programs are open to entry at any time. However, we can only accept a
minimum number of new students for enrollment each month. In order to
avoid delays in being able to take advantage of this rare educational
opportunity, this should be considered a major priority.
The nature of self-directed education demands of the studentís maturity, responsibility and self-discipline on the studentís part. Therefore, the applicant should remain aware of the following:
All Love Offers in lieu of tuition are freely given and therefore refundable if a student terminates for a valid reason as determined by Northwestern Theological Seminary. However, if Northwestern Theological Seminary determines that their is not a valid reason for a refund, or a student is terminated for disciplinary reasons, there will be no refund and once a student graduates and is awarded a degree, there can be no refund.
