SS-103-2014-Don't-Waste-Your-Summer-2014-SBTS-webThis summer, Southern Seminary will offer more course options than ever before. The summer term runs from May 19 until July 27. Whether you are beginning your degree or finishing it, you can take advantage of these summer courses. For more information about pricing and admissions, email or call 1-800-626-5525 ext. 4200.


Delivery options:

Online: Southern will offer at least one section of virtually every online course available. Courses begin on  Monday, May 19, 2014 and end on Friday, July 25, 2014.

Hybrid modular: Combines online study with an intensive, 2 day, on-campus experience.  Multiple classes are offered between May 19, 2013 to Jul 27, 2014.

Modular (J-terms): More than 40 one-week intensives offered between May 19, 2013 to July 25, 2014.

Conference courses: Conference classes allow students to receive the encouragement and training offered by an event while simultaneously receiving course credit. Multiple options available this summer.

A note to online students:

This summer only, students will pay the full $250 fee only for their first online summer course. To help students take as many courses as possible, the online fee for each student’s second online summer course will be cut in half to $125. And, beginning with their third summer online course, students pay no online fees at all. Note that this discount applies to the online fee, not to tuition rates. Since these are online courses, you can complete them from anywhere you happen to be this summer.
