Part-time students come from all over the metropolitan New York area, the United States and even from around the world. Some are clergy, and others are lay men and women interested in learning more about their faith and the church. Their diversity of background and opinion enriches the classroom experience.
Those wishing to participate in Seminary course offerings as part-time students who are not seeking a degree have the opportunity to choose from day and evening schedules and courses in either traditional 12-week formats or intensive formats that meet over a period of days or a weekend.
Registration for a course must be received by the deadline (normally one week prior to the start of the class), together with all fees and tuition. Early registration is helpful to the professors in planning their courses! Some courses require part-time students to obtain the instructor's permission for registration.
Part-time students who are not seeking degrees are ineligible for courses offered under any cross-registration agreement into which the Seminary has entered with other educational institutions. Non-degree students may earn up to 14 credits toward an M.A. degree and up to 25 credits toward an M.Div. degree. Students must matriculate if they want additional credits to apply toward a degree.
