What is the purpose of the Enrichment program?
Phoenix Seminary offers a non-credit personal Enrichment option for men and women who desire to deepen their understanding of God’s Word and to increase their effectiveness in lay ministry.
Enrichment students have the opportunity to experience some of the benefits of seminary training without the cost and time commitment typically required.
Enrichment courses are not transcripted or transferred as academic credit. If an enrichment participant is subsequently admitted to a program and wishes to receive credit for a course, the course must be repeated with all work completed and graded during the repeated course.
Enrichment students are expected to meet all course prerequisites. Enrollment may be limited for some courses. D.Min. courses and TH 504 Systematic Theology are not open to enrichment students.
Ordinarily, enrichment students should not participate in the classroom discussion unless invited to do so by the professor. Although enrichment students are not expected to complete assignments, their experience is enhanced if they complete the readings so that they can come to the classroom with the same shared background of information as the other students. Enrichment students must be respectful of the fact that class time with the professor is limited and priority needs to be given to credit students.
Applicants for personal enrichment must be at least 21 years of age and must have a high school diploma or G.E.D., or have earned a bachelor’s degree. Applicants must give evidence of a commitment to Jesus Christ. The Admissions Committee reserves the right to deny admission to any Enrichment applicant for any reason.
