When do classes start?

Classes start each spring, summer, and fall. To see start dates, take a look at the dates and deadlines page.

Are there deadlines for tests and projects?

You won’t have deadlines for tests. But you’ll have deadlines for papers and projects so your instructor can give you feedback before you turn in your next project. (If you’d like, you can work ahead and turn in projects early.)

Do I need a proctor?

Yes, you’ll need a proctor to administer and supervise the quizzes and tests for your online course. If you will be working on your courses in the United States, you can either use a live proctor or Examity online proctoring. If you will be taking quizzes or tests while outside of the United States, you must use Examity online proctoring. There is no charge to use Examity, which is a remote test proctoring service that allows you to take quizzes and tests from home at any time, day or night.

If you choose to use a live proctor, you must get the proctor approved before you can begin preregistration. The proctor must be a member of the local church pastoral staff (pastor, associate pastor, youth pastor); pastor’s wife; deacon; church secretary; or a member of the administration, faculty, or secretarial staff of a Christian school. Relatives, peers, GA’s or other students enrolled in online courses are not allowed to be proctors. Your proctor should be available throughout the term to proctor your tests, and you will need to plan your testing times around your proctor’s schedule. Tests will be administered online using the proctor’s computer.

The Online-Learning Office will also provide testing times for on-campus and town students. If you select this option, you will receive an e-mail with available testing times after you are registered for your course.

How long can I take to finish my degree?

You can finish your degree in under two years, but you’ll have up to seven years if you need it.

Can I transfer credits from somewhere else?

Up to three hours of approved graduate credit can be transferred to a PTS master’s degree.

Will my diploma specify that I earned this degree online?

No, your diploma will only say “Pensacola Theological Seminary.” Your online degree is no different from the same degree earned on campus.

Can I take a semester off between classes?

Feel free to take semesters off when you need to! You have seven years to finish.
