    Special Student Policy

    For those applying to The Master of Christian Counseling and Master of Divinity program applicants without an accredited bachelor’s degree:

    Emmanuel University has always been focused on helping students develop two capabilities: a vision for the Gospel and a passion for scholarship.  If you are considering a program in Emmanuel University you can be certain an education at Emmanuel University is grounded in Christian faith and built on a solid foundation of academic study.

    If you desire to explore a genuine Christian way to use your talents and skills in an academically challenging and spiritually maturing environment, we invite you to apply to Master of Christian Counseling program and Master of Divinity program applicants whose gifts and calling have been verified by the church but who have not earned an accredited bachelor’s degree may be considered for admission to a Emmanuel University master’s program as Special Students.

    Candidates for admission as Special Students are required to demonstrate a readiness for success in a graduate course of studies at Emmanuel University.  In addition, applicants must demonstrate at least 12 years of work experiences subsequent to the completion of a high school diploma and at least 3 years of full-time vocational ministry or at least five years of significant part-time ministry.

    Special Students are initially admitted on probation, but may eventually be removed from probation and Special Student status if they achieve student in good standing status.
