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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
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 are SCP intensives offered?
Any academic commitment you make is a time constraint and in order to minimize the impact of taking an SCP Intensive, we only offer these intensives during breaks. We offer SCP Intensives during the fall break, the Christmas break, and the summer break. A more detailed schedule of SCP Intensives can be found online at (link to the SCP Intensive Schedule).
Do the SCP intensives include tests, books, etc.?
The structure of each SCP Intensive is up to the professor, however you can expect pre-class readings and assignments as well in-class discussions. A syllabus for each course will be provided to all students registered for the SCP Intensive one month prior to the beginning of class.
When can I take an SCP exam?
SCP Exams are available all year. To register for an SPC exam please contact the SCP student Advisor at (919) 761-2284 or by email at email@example.com.
Is there a time limit for taking the exams?
Students interested in taking the exams may do so any time prior to their last semester of their graduate degree.
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.
