Who can participate in the SCP?

There are two types of students who can participate in the SCP.

First, if you have completed Bachelor’s degree at a regionally accredited school you may be eligible. You will also need to have a ‘B’ or better in courses that covered the same material as courses listed in the SEBTS MDiv core. A list of MDiv core classes may be found online in the latest SEBTS catalog.

Second, if you are a College at Southeastern (CASE) student and have completed at least seventy credit hours in your undergraduate studies, along with meeting the requirements listed above, you will be eligible to participate.

If I transfer to another institution what happens to the credits I’ve earned through the SCP?

Any credits you earn through the SCP are transferable and will appear as three credit hours on your transcript.

How do I enroll in the SCP?

Your eligibility for the SCP is determined by a transcript evaluation. If you have already been accepted to SEBTS and would like your transcripts evaluated please click here.  If you have not been accepted and would like to have your transcripts evaluated please contact the SCP Student Advisor at (919) 761-2284 or by email at 

Do I have to be a graduate of a Christian institution?

Absolutely not. It doesn’t matter what school you are coming from as long as the school is regionally accredited. Any courses you have taken covering the same material as courses listed in the SEBTS MDiv core can count toward eligibility.

When and where can I take an SCP exam?

SCP Exams are available all year. All tests are completely online. Once you have been registered for a test, the exam will show up on your Moodle page as any other class would. To register for an SCP exam please contact the SCP student Advisor at (919) 761-2284 or by email at 

Is there a time limit for taking the exams?

Once students sign up for a test, they have 60 days to complete the exam before the exam closes and they are removed from the class. Students must complete all tests prior to the start of their last semester of Seminary. 

How is competency determined through a SCP Exam?

All SCP Exams work on a pass/fail basis. Passing simply means that the student has received a score of 70% or higher on the exam. Students are not awarded a grade and therefore their GPA is not affected.
