Christian Degree Programs FAQ
How long does it take to complete a course?
The average student generally completes any of our online Christian college courses in 4-6 weeks. You may progress more quickly as time and funds allow. However, you may take up to 6 months to complete a course.
Will I be assigned a mentor?
Yes. Every student will be assigned a Christian college degree mentor to guide them through their program, grade exams, and assist as needed.
What kind of programs do you offer?
We offer degree programs from the Associate level to the Doctoral level in Ministry and Biblical Studies. We also offer Master’s and Doctoral levels in Christian Counseling. You can also take a Master’s in Church History and Divinity.
Can I take a course for personal enrichment and not work toward a degree?
Yes. You may take Personal Enrichment courses individually by desired course. We are still populating these courses on the website, so continue to come back and view the latest updates.
Does CTS supply my text books or do I buy them myself?
The NCCA counseling courses come with their own books. The CTS and ITS courses will require you to purchase books. Our Amazon.com associated online bookstore will make available the books you need. We also have many links to virtual libraries that offer free downloads of eBooks. Procuring your resources will be very easy to do.
I plan on enrolling in a program that has ITS materials. What can I expect?
The M.Div and Master in Church History use course materials from the Institute of Theological Studies (ITS). You will receive via UPS or the mail audio CDs / MP3 files. You will also receive a syllabus and study guide. You will need to listen to the CDs and answer the study questions. You will also do some outside reading and paper writing. You will send your course work to your mentor for grading.
I plan on enrolling in a program which uses NCCA materials. What can I expect?
Some of our Christian counseling programs utilize materials from the National Christian Counselor’s Association (NCCA). You will receive via UPS texts and perhaps a DVD. After studying the materials, you will take a proctored exam. A proctor is someone who is not a family member, who will verify it was indeed you who took the exam and that you did not use any study materials while taking the exam. You will send your answers to your mentor for grading.
I intend to enroll in a program with CTS materials. What can I expect?
The Ministry, Biblical Studies and some of the Christian counseling programs use our own material. A study guide and course requirements will be sent to you by your mentor via email attachment. You will be required to take midterm and final exams (non-proctored) and send them to your mentor for grading. You will also need to do a certain amount of outside reading and paper writing which will be assessed by your mentor as well. You may mail or email these to your mentor.
