Students must have earned a grade of C or better (2.0 on a 4.0 scale) in order to be eligible to transfer a course from another institution to DTS. Transferability of credits earned at this institution and transferred to another is at the discretion of the receiving institution. Consult the Registrar’s office for further information.

Residential Requirements

While the CGS in Bible and theology can be completed entirely online, CGS courses are also offered as classroom courses on the main Dallas campus and at all of the seminary’s extension campuses. This is to enhance the learning objectives of certain subjects that may be better achieved through a live interactive setting as well as for those who prefer a traditional face-to-face format. Of the 30 semester hours of coursework required for graduation, a minimum of 24 must be taken through DTS. Reinstatement to the program after withdrawal requires Admissions Committee action and may subject the student to additional requirements for the certificate.

Course Requirements

Thirty hours of coursework are required for the CGS. Students will complete 9 hours in Bible Exposition, 9 hours in Systematic Theology, 3 hours in the Christian Life and Witness course, and 9 hours of electives. Students are able to take up to 6 additional hours beyond the designated 30 hours without needing to apply to a degree program.

Certificate of Graduatie Studies (CGS)

Graduates of this certificate program normally are not recommended by the Alumni and Church Relations office for ministry placement. Students in the CGS program are classified as nondegree students.
