Distance Learning Courses (dlc)

Distance Learning Courses enable individuals to earn credits toward a graduate degree without traveling to any of the participating campuses. Students study selected subjects through a variety of web-based delivery systems that create a seamless interaction between the course instructor and the students, as well as providing student to student dialogue and peer learning. A limited number of credits in an AGTS degree may be earned through distance learning or directed research (other advanced standing credit may limit the number of allowable hours).

At present, we offer these courses for distance learning.


DLC are intended primarily for individuals enrolled in AGTS continuing education and in-service programs or for prospective participants who choose to complete foundational degree requirements before arrival on campus. Resident participants may utilize the program, with approval of the academic dean, to resolve course conflicts. Unclassified participants may also enroll for courses.

  1. Formal admission to the seminary is required before graduate credit can be awarded.
  2. Registration is started through the Office of Continuing Education.

Refund Policy

Individuals dropping DLC must complete the required forms and secure the approval of the registrar. When a course is dropped, the following schedule will be used to determine the amount of tuition refund:

  1. No refund on fees
  2. Refund on tuition:
    • Up to and including the first day of class—100%
    • First week (2nd-6th day)—90%
    • Second week (7th-12th day)—80%
    • Third week (13th -19th day)—70%
    • No refund after the third week (20th day).
