INDEPENDENT INDIVIDUALIZED PROGRAM

PATHWAY TO ADMISSION AND COMPLETION

The competency level of a prospective student is evaluated by review of the individual's application for admission and a portfolio. The portfolio includes a detailed ministerial/occupational resume, official transcripts and other documents supporting previous academic work, and specialized training certificates. Evaluation of each individual's portfolio of documents is the key component for acceptance of an individual into an independent and individualized degree program for either undergraduate or graduate work. The evaluation is planned to determine whether an applicant has the appropriate educational background, occupational accomplishment and attitudinal motivation necessary to function effectively in an independent, individualized educational environment. Motivation is a fundamental factor for determining whether an individual can successfully function in this type of learning situation.
