Colorado Theological Seminary (CTS) understands that not all Christians have the desire to put the time and effort into earning a degree in a Christian discipline. However, many people have advanced the question of having a certificate program available to them where the rigors of degree program study are not involved but where applicable and appreciable effort would be, and resources would be made available to enrich a person’s knowledge in a subject area and where recognition can be attained. CTS has heard these requests and has responded by creating the Personal Enrichment Certificate Program

The program is entirely prepaid by the student. No refund will be made available. An application for enrollment into the seminary is not required and neither is the application fee. Instead, the accompanying application will be needed to manage course matriculation and for the award of the certificate. No academic credit will be granted and a transcript will not be made available. Upon receipt of the application and successful completion of the course, a certificate with CTS seal and Board Member signature will be awarded and mailed to the applicant if they live within the United States of America. Foreign applicants will have a copy of their certificate sent to their email address as an attachment. Interaction with faculty is not available since this is a self directed distance learning environment.

Course Requirements

  1. Read the accompanying Commentary/Study Guide.
  2. Read the required book.
  3. Send in via mail or email the Mid term and Final exams. Only a Pass/Fail grade is given. Once you Pass, you will be awarded your certificate. You will not be given any answers to the questions. Your exams need not be proctored since CTS trusts that you will have been the person who indeed took the exams.
