Online Classes FAQs

Hybrid Classes

Online students often desire to know their fellow students and professors. Online classes provide ways to do this well. However, in order to keep the convenience of online classes and increase student interaction with classmates and professors Southeastern launched the first-ever hybrid class in the spring of 2009.

Hybrid classes utilize online lectures and assignments along with on-campus class time. For one weekend of the semester, hybrid students come to campus for face-to-face interaction. Friday and Saturday class meetings provide a way to remain living at a distance and interact with other students and professors.

Distance Learning students who meet the degree and residency requirements may also be eligible for a Keesee grant towards their tuition if they take hybrid courses! Click here to find out more about the Keesee Educational Fund and see if you qualify.

Extension Centers

Excellent and qualified faculty members, both full-time and adjunctive, teach our students at extension centers.

Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary operates several extension centers throughout the southeastern United States. Core classes and track requirements are offered at these centers and can be applied toward a master’s or undergraduate degree. Extension center classes can be combined with online, hybrid or five-day break classes.

Extension classes meet at an extension center of Southeastern. Classes are typically closed, so students will need to be affiliated with the cohort/extension to take the class.

Conference Classes Available

Southeastern Seminary offers students the opportunity to receive seminary or college credit by attending conferences on Southeastern’s campus or select conferences throughout the country. Conferences are an excellent opportunity to receive world-class training, and the option to receive class credit serves as an additional bonus. Conference classes held in Wake Forest are a great way for students to receive on-campus credit for conference classes such as 9Marks and the Go Conference. Regardless of where the conference is held, students should always register for the conference (through the conference webpage) in addition to the class through the Registrar’s office. In order to receive class credit, students will need to attend all sessions for the conference as well as any additional classroom time and assignments included in the class syllabus. Please be aware that students are responsible for both conference fees and tuition fees for these classes.
