Student Resources

Program Handbook:

Textbooks

For a list of the book titles you will need, please refer to the course outline/syllabus on the webpage for the class you plan to take.
 
As most classes require some pre-class assignments, all books should be ordered in enough time for you to arrive at the first class prepared.

The following list is an excellent resource for finding books at a good rate and fast delivery:

www.amazon.com
www.barnesandnoble.com
www.bookfinder.com
www.abebooks.com
www.alibris.com
www.half.com

*A few required books may only be available via the professor, the Seminary, or the Andrews University Bookstore. Please be sure to check the syllabus for instructions on ordering.


Canadian and Bermudian Students

All international students entering the US to take InMinistry classes are required to come on a student visa, which requires an I-20. An I-20 is only available for students accepted into a degree program. While Canadian citizens do not need a visa to enter the United States, they must have an I-20 to present at the border. Students need a new I-20 each time they come across the border.

Students must be financially cleared in order for International Student Services to be able to process the I-20 paperwork. Please contact the International Financial Advisor at (269) 471-3834 for details pertaining to financial clearance. For questions regarding the I-20, please contact International Student Services at (269) 471-6395. Without the proper documentation students will not be able to register or attend classes.

Grades

Students should send projects and final assignments prior to published deadlines. Students can expect professors to grade their work without delay, annotating the documents, indicating their strengths and weaknesses. The following assignment submission deadline and penalties are to be applied:

Assignments received by due date:        (possible A grade)
Delay up to 60 days:                            (no better than an A- grade)
Delay up to 90 days:                            (no better than a B+ grade)
Delay up to 120 days:                          (no better than a B grade)
Delay up to 150 days:                          (no better than a C grade)

DG—Deferred Grade

Frequently InMinistry students are completing class assignments across semesters. During this ‘lag’ time prior to final grades, a ‘deferred grade’ (DG) may be posted. Upon final submission of all required work, students will be informed of their final grade.

*The InMinistry Center requires that students who have four (4) or more deferred grades (DGs) on their transcript may not take further classes until the number of DGs are brought down to no more than three (3).

Grade Reports

Andrews University students can view and print their grades via the university website once they have obtained an Andrews email address and password.
