Audit a Class
COURSE AUDIT/SEMINAR/WORKSHOP POLICY
NBSOM Seminars/Workshops are for people who want to deepen and enrich their spiritual life through theological study, biblical knowledge, exploration of their call to ministry, and/or who want some limited ministerial training but are not seeking a Diploma. Any courses can be treated as a seminar/workshop or audited course.
Courses in are offered over a schedule year (fall, winter, spring and summer). Courses are scheduled to accommodate those still involved in daytime employment. Required courses and seminars are normally taught during evening hours. Some courses and seminars are offered on weekends and as weeklong intensives.
A non-student may choose to audit a class for enrichment. Anon-refundable registration of $40.00 will be charged. To audit or treat any given class or specialized course as a seminar/workshop, one must obtain the permission of the instructor, dean and register for the class and pay the audit fee ($40). The completed form must have the signatures of:
- The Student
- The Instructor
- The Dean of Academic Office
Forms must be submitted to Records & Registration with the proper signatures and proof of payment of fee.
The audit privilege permits the auditor to attend a course, providing there is room in the course and the necessary approvals have been granted. It does not require the auditor to take assignments or examinations in the course or to have his or her work evaluated in any other way. The auditor may negotiate assignments presentations, and examinations with the instructor. If the auditor think that he/she might want to use this course in the future as credit, it will be in his/her best interest to complete assignments, presentations, and examinations, although the auditor receives no grade for the course, nor is any record of course attendance kept.
A certificate is given within two weeks of a completed course. Auditors may change their enrollment status from audit to credit if they become enrolled as a student at a later date. If the auditor decides to enroll in NBSOM as a student, each course can be counted as credit towards a diploma with the approval of the Instructor and Dean’s office.
