Academic Requirements

The Doctor of Ministry is comprised of a total of 32 semester credits, consisting of 25 credits for coursework and seven credits that are associated with a ministry-context project (or in some cases a portfolio).
For Applicants:
The basis of admission to the DMin program is the Master of Divinity degree or educational equivalent.
The graduate-level grade point average for the degree or work most recently done prior to applying to the DMin must be at least 3.25 for regular admission status. Provisional admission status is possible for those with a GPA of 3.0-3.24, but the required level of 3.25 or better must be achieved for the first year’s study module to continue further in the program and advance to regular admission status.

For Program Participants:

The cumulative GPA in the Doctor of Ministry program must be maintained at 3.0 or higher. If a student’s cumulative GPA drops below 3.00 they will be placed on academic probation and must raise the cumulative GPA to 3.00 or above with the completion of the next module in the following year. If the cumulative GPA remains lower than 3.00 they may not continue.

The cumulative GPA for DMin studies must be no lower than 3.0 to meet graduation requirements.
