Planning For Seminary

Preparing your schedule to make space for online coursework will help you achieve long-term success in your desired online program. Here are a few helpful ways to prepare for becoming an online student:

Plan Your Week:

  • Make a schedule for the semester and stick to it
  • Set aside time to spend with the Lord
  • Exercise. Eat well. Get plenty of rest.
  • For every course, plan to spend 8-10 hours on it each week. If you can, try to find blocks of 3-4 hours at a time to devote to coursework and block those hours out on your calendar every week
  • Make time for family and friends

Stay Connected:

  • Ask for help when you need ittechnology assistance, student support, course advising, writing and research help are all a click or call away
  • Make sure to check your student email account regularly 

Think Creatively About Finances:

  • Some students raise support funds for their seminary experience. Others take out reasonable loans. Some churches offer support for students attending seminary. Think creatively, ask around, and start planning while trusting that God will provide.
  • Apply for Seminary scholarships. It’s free to apply.
