Students applying from outside the U. S. may inquire with our Admissions team about possible cost-of-living adjustments.
If your degree is from a school outside the US, we utilize lists of member agencies and schools compiled and monitored by the International Council for Evangelical Theological Education as a help in determining accreditation credentials. See list at ICETE.
If we are unfamiliar with the school or do not find it listed with ICETE, we use the services of credential evaluation agencies approved by the Florida Department of Education (link at FDOE). We must pass on any costs for these services to applicants, but we notify applicants of specific costs, and gain their agreement to pay before securing these services.
Each applicant must demonstrate proficiency in the language of the program to which they are applying. If the applicant is not a native speaker, their writing samples on the application do not exhibit proficiency, and/or their undergraduate degree is not in the language of the program to which they are applying, the Director of Student Services may request that the applicant take a language proficiency test. If requested, the applicant must take the proficiency test and score in the B1 range (European standard) in order to have their application considered further.
To complete courses at Thirdmill Seminary, you will need to have consistent access to a computer with a reliable internet connection. Most of the learning materials that you will be using in our courses are compatible with Adobe PDF, Microsoft Office, and QuickTime Player. Our learning platform, Moodle, can be accessed by the latest versions of IE, Safari, Opera and Chrome, but we recommend you use the latest version of Mozilla Firefox. Although working through a mobile device is not recommended, it is an option. There is no need to purchase software to study at Thirdmill Seminary.
Student Fees for registered courses are due when the student signs the enrollment agreement for that academic period. Student accounts must be current in order for them to start classes each term. Students can keep their accounts current in two ways:
1) Full payment of all fees for classes in an academic period no later than 5pm Eastern Time on the Friday before the first day of class. Or,
2) Payment of 50% of their total fees for classes no later than 5pm Eastern Time on the Friday before the first day of class, and payment of the remaining balance of their fees no later than 5pm Eastern Time on the 4th Friday of the academic period.
Students who maintain an outstanding balance will not be able to enroll in any additional classes until their account is current.
For students who have paid 100% of their fees for an academic period, but wish to withdraw from a class, may receive up to a 50% refund, if they request withdrawal before 5 pm Eastern Time on the 4th Friday of the academic period. Students who withdraw after that time will be responsible for the full amount of their assessment fees for the classes in which they enrolled.
Students who cancel their enrollment within 5 days of signing the enrollment agreement will receive a full refund of any assessment fees paid to the Seminary. In order to communicate the cancellation, a student will notify the Registrar and/or their professor in writing by email or submit the "Add/Drop" form online.
