- IF YOU WANT TO MONITOR COURSES FOR NO CREDIT -
Some people do not want to earn a degree but still want to take
the courses.  This is called monitoring courses.  This is allowed
because we want everyone to learn.  If you want to monitor
the courses, please contact us through the MONITORING
COURSES
form and inform us that you are going to do so.
This allows us to properly handle your tests by routing them
to a Monitoring Only file.  While monitoring courses,
please do not submit any forms for those courses
except the original MONITORING COURSES
form informing us that you are doing so.
Please enter "No Credit" on all tests
in the field marked "User Name."

 

- TAKING COURSES FOR CREDIT TOWARD A DEGREE -
Please read and follow ALL of the instructions on this page.
Failure to follow instructions may result in
disallowance of work and tests and a loss of credits.

You must use the email address submitted on your Application form
on all forms and tests.  If you change your email or want to use
a second email address, then please submit a Change Of Email
form.  To access the form, CLICK HERE.

If you are taking classes for credit, please submit a Begin Sign In Form when you first start each course and then submit a Finish Sign In Form when you complete the entire course.  You do not submit the sign in form when you "Finish" each lesson- only when you "Finish" the entire course.  You can access these forms through the SIGN IN page.

1. This is a link to a COURSE RECORD FORM.  Download and print a copy of that form for every course that you are going to take.  Record all pertinent course information in the appropriate blanks provided on that form.  You will need that information when you submit future forms and password requests.

After signing in, then click on a class and that will take you to that class page where you will find specific instructions on how to take the class.  Please read and follow all instructions.

You must meet minimum attendance requirements for each course if you are taking the course for credit toward a degree.

2. Students are also required to report their grades for verification to the Administrative Office every 6 months.  This is accomplished by means of the TRANSCRIPT & GRADES FORM.  To access that form, click that link.  Your computer will ask you to specify where the form download is to be saved.  Specify somewhere you will be able to easily find it.
To access an instruction video explaining use of the form, click HERE and scroll down to the video entitled
How to Use the Transcript and Grades Template. Update that form every time you start a course and every time you pass a quiz/test.
ATTENTION: Be sure to submit a copy of the form to the college every six (6) months to keep your Academic File current.  Keep updating the same form and add the new information to it and send a copy of it to the college. Do not use a different
form each time.

 

CREDITS

In general, credits are figured according to the following schedule.  One credit being awarded per one-quarter course, two per semester, six per year.  This general schedule of one credit per quarter course may be superceded by specific credit awards stated on individual course pages.

GENERAL STUDY INSTRUCTIONS
  These may be superceded by specific instructions given on the course main page.

  • Each section generally requires 1 week study/attendance.
    You may NOT take more than one test in any one subject on one day including retakes of failed tests.
    (If course requires more than 1 week attendance per section, it will state so on the individual course page.)

  • Look up every scripture referenced in the textbook and workbook.

  • At the end of each section, stop and take the section test if there is one.
    Most tests are "open book" which means that you may use all study materials (workbook, textbook, Bible, etc.) while taking the tests.
    ANSWERS: Those tests that are open book require the exact answer from the textbook, workbook, or Bible, whichever of the study materials are appropriate for the question.  Incorrect answers, spelling, punctuation, extra spaces before or anywhere in the answer or after the answer, will cause the answer to be scored as "Incorrect."  Along with the privilege of using your study materials and taking an "open book" test comes the responsibility of giving the answers to questions verbatim from those study materials.

  • You may NOT go on to the next section until you have passed the test for the current section and found all of the answers in the textbook to any questions missed on the current test, whether you passed it or not.  The attendance for the next Lesson begins on the next day.

TESTING

        Make sure you read and submit the Testing Instructions if you have not already done so.  Only one (1) Testing Instruction form is required per student.  If you do not submit a Testing Instructions form you will not be able to correctly fill out the information page of the tests.  And without a Testing Instructions form in your file your tests will be disallowed and they will not be credited to you.

  • You may NOT take more than one test in any one subject on one day.  If you fail a test, you MAY NOT attempt that test again on the same day.  You must restudy the textbook, the workbook, and your Bible (whichever is appropriate) and find all of the correct answers to the questions missed and then retake the test no sooner than the next day.

  • When you receive a passing score on a test you are required to find all of the correct answers in your textbook, workbook, or Bible, whichever is appropriate, for every question missed on the test.  A copy of each test is automatically sent to you and you may use the correct answers listed on it to verify that you have found the correct answers in the appropriate study materials.  This is required before you go on to the next lesson.

  • Sometimes the tests do not open when you first download them.  This is an unavoidable slight quirk in some computers that causes them to have a bit of a problem processing the opening page of the tests, generally because of filters or security settings on the computer.  If you get a blank page, please refresh the page and the tests will open.  Either click the refresh icon or press F5 to refresh the page and open the test.  On rare occasions, depending on your internet connection and your computer, it may take several refreshes to open the test.  If the test still will not open, even after several attempts to refresh the page, then please contact us via the CONTACT form and explain the problem.  Upon receipt of the form we will attempt to help you resolve the problem.
