What Students Say

Christian Graduate School Built for You

Learning online gives you maximum convenience, but learning on campus gives you maximum potential for new friendships and networking.

You can do both! Many degrees offer several of the required classes online—plus the option of short summer courses. Look below for two examples.

  1. The M.S. in Curriculum and Instruction (Elementary Specialization) requires 10 classes. Seven are offered online, and the other three are offered during two-week summer sessions.
  2. The Master of Church Music degree requires 30 credits. The 12 credits of Bible elective courses may be completed online, while the 18 credits of church music courses are completed during two-week summer sessions.

Pensacola Christian College has been approved by the state of Florida to participate in the National Council for State Authorization Reciprocity Agreements (nc-sara.org). NC-SARA is a voluntary, regional approach to state oversight of postsecondary distance education.

FAQs

Yes, you’ll need a proctor to administer and supervise the quizzes and tests for your online course. There are multiple proctor options for students. Respondus is our preferred proctoring method and can be used by all students unless they are taking a special course that requires live remote proctoring (Examity). Live, in-person proctors can also be used unless a student is located internationally (Respondus or Examity is available). The proper options are indicated as students register for specific courses.

If you choose to use a live proctor, you must get the proctor approved. The proctor must be a member of the local church staff or the 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.

While courses are designed for you to work through with a level of flexibility, a calendar giving the course assignments and due dates has been created to help you in planning your schedule. Please note that a one-time 10% grade deduction will be imposed on all late work (papers, projects, etc.) submitted after the calendar deadlines in Canvas. This late penalty will also apply to quizzes and tests not taken within 2 weeks of the assigned due date. This policy is designed to help all online students receive appropriate feedback to ensure adequate preparation and a greater degree of academic success throughout the semester.

Yes, you can work ahead and turn in projects before their due date.

You’ll use a simple learning management system called Canvas to watch lectures, do your work, and connect with other students.

Yes, you’ll be able to e-mail them or talk to them through Canvas if you have questions.

You must have a bachelor’s degree in order to be accepted into our graduate or seminary programs. A minimum 2.50 cumulative GPA is required to be accepted as a master’s student (2.00 for M.Div. and M.Min. degrees). Specific degree programs may include additional admission requirements.

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

Feel free to take semesters off when you need to! You have seven years to finish (five years for the Ed.S.).
