Non-degree seeking students are individuals who wish to take advantage of coursework offered through Bethel College’s accredited or non-accredited programs. These students are not interested in fulfilling the requirements for a degree from Bethel College but are interested in study for personal development and professional integrity.
Bethel College offers three ways to approach additional personal and professional development in a non-degree setting:
1. Courses taken for academic credit.
Students may be interested in taking specific courses being offered by Bethel College for college credit, even though the intent is not to work toward fulfilling the requirements for a degree. Students need to identify this approach in the application process. After acceptance into this non-degree program, students may register for any courses in which they are interested in order to enhance personal or professional goals.
2. Courses taken for audit credit only.
Students who are only interested in audit credit for courses should contact the admission’s office for further guidance on applying for this specific program. After acceptance at the audit level, students may register for any courses in which they are interested in order to enhance personal or professional goals.
This non-degree program offers several courses in biblical studies and ministerial leadership in a weekend format, with each course being offered on one Friday night and Saturday per month. Students purchase the textbook for the course, answer questions as they read, and bring their answered questions to the weekend class. These courses also fulfill the educational requirements needed for credentialing with the Assemblies of God at all three levels.
