Occasional Student status is designed for individuals who want to study at ACTS on a course-by-course basis. If you are looking for professional development opportunities, exploring a topic of special interest, or just trying seminary education for personal growth, this status allows you to get into the classroom without a lengthy application process.
Occasional students may take a maximum of 12 credit hours. After this point, occasional students will need to apply to a degree or diploma program to continue their study.
Visiting Student status allows an individual who is registered at another graduate theological institution to take courses at ACTS. To study as a Visiting Student, you must complete the Quick Application and provide a Letter of Permission from the institution where you are enrolled. This letter should indicate the course(s) you wish to take and confirm your current academic standing in your home institution.
