DIPLOMA OF THEOLOGICAL STUDIES

The STS diploma program is intended to offer seminary training to students who do not have an undergraduate degree. Upon completion of the program, students will obtain a non-accredited diploma in recognition of their fulfilling the requirements described below. The grading scale to be used for students enrolled in the diploma program will be consistent with the scale used for accredited degree programs. Therefore, students who hold an undergraduate degree when they enter the diploma program may transfer credits toward an STS accredited degree program in the future.
