Academic Requirement


In order to progress through the program and to be awarded the degree, every student must maintain an academic average of at least 3.0 on a 4.0 scale. Failure to do so will result in a probationary warning. Following the warning, a student will face possible dismissal from the program if the student fails in the next course to maintain a 3.0.

Attendance Requirement


Students are required to attend every session of the seminar. Any absence may necessitate repeating the seminar. An approved absence would require the approval of the Professor and Director of the DMin program and will only be approved under unusual circumstances (i.e. funerals or other emergencies).

Form and Style Requirements


All written assignments must conform to the guidelines provided by Kate L. Turabian, A Manual for Writers of Term Papers, Theses, and Dissertations (7th ed.; Chicago: University of Chicago Press, 2007) with special attention and care taken for the preparation of the final Ministry Project Report manuscript.  For other matters not addressed by Turabian, The Chicago Manual of Style (14th ed.; Chicago: University of Chicago Press, l993) must be consulted.  If there are questions which are not answered by these two sources, the student should consult the Faculty Supervisor/Chair of his or her Supervisory Committee or the Director. 

A “Common Writing Errors” guide is provided in the appendices of this handbook. Students should consult this guide carefully (see Appendix H).

Students may not use electronic book readers (such as Kindle) as a reference source. Kindles, for example, do not provide the original page numbers for referencing. Any questions concerning the use of electronic readers should be addressed to the Director.

All submitted written assignment must be typed on a computer unless the professor specifies otherwise. Copies (other than final Ministry Project Reports) may be either good quality copies prepared by a photocopier or a letter quality computer printer.  The form of the copies of the final Ministry Project Report will be discussed in detail later in this handbook.

Registration/Enrollment Requirement


Each student must register/enroll online for offerings each semester. An “Access Guide” is available in the Help section of CampusNet with step-by-step instructions on how to register for classes. Further instructions will be provided while students are on campus for seminars about online registration. Students will receive an email notification prior to open enrollment from the Registrar’s office as well as the DMin office.

Technological Requirements


A computer and Internet capability are required components of the Doctor of Ministry Program. Southeastern utilizes the Internet to allow students in a cohort group to maintain contact with each other to complete specific online assignments, and to interact with the faculty.

In addition, every student at Southeastern is required to provide an external email account in which messages are automatically forwarded to an address of the student’s choosing. Students are required to check their email regularly to receive communication from the seminary.

Students should become familiar with CampusNet through which a student accesses his or her registration, grades, accounting statements, course description and materials. An orientation session for technological usage and specific educational software utilized in the program will be a part of the first seminar for each student.

Students should also become familiar with Moodle, an Open Source Course Management System (CMS) that gives our professors the best tools to manage and promote learning. Southeastern uses it as our platform to conduct online courses and to augment face-to-face courses (known as blended learning) giving students the ability to meet online for a class. Moodle contains interactive activity modules, threaded discussions, and interactive assignments. Moodle also delivers static content such as syllabi, notes, PowerPoint presentations, and quizzes/tests to our students. 

An “Access Guide” for students on getting started with logging in, course page, downloading files, uploading assignments, taking quizzes, and viewing the class forum in Moodle is provided in the Help section of CampusNet.
