Specific Student Advising Needs

1.       What if I am done with one of the Bible survey classes but not both?

  1. You could take the other Bible survey class online during the next year for 2 credits.
  2. You could take the needed survey class as a 3-credit course in the fall of 2013.
  3. You will then also need to take Principles of Bible Study. See #2 for directions.

 

2.       What if I am done with both Bible survey classes but have not taken Principles of Bible Study?

  1. That means you have 4 of the 6 credits that will now be required in OT and NT Survey.
  2. Content from Principles of Bible Study will be integrated into the new survey courses.
  3. Therefore you still need to take Principles of Bible Study for 2 credits.
  4. You may take Principles of Bible Study online during the summer for 2 credits.
  5. We will offer Principles of Bible Study next year each semester. You may take it then.

 

3. What if I have taken one or two of the Christian Life courses, but not all three?

  1. Content from the three Christian Life courses will be integrated into the new course.
