Non-Degree Programs

We believe that every follower of Jesus is in full-time ministry
whether they are in the pulpit, in business, or at home.

TCCTC offers non-degree certificate programs, continuing education units (CEUs), and training workshops and seminars. All enhance lifelong Christian growth relating to individual, workplace, and congregational life.

Courses for Personal Growth (Audit)
Students may audit courses for personal growth and enjoyment rather than earn course credit. Although examinations and outside reading are not required, the instructor may allow auditing students to take exams to gauge individual growth. Records of attendance for audited classes are kept, but a student file is not maintained. Audited courses may be applied toward the following non-degree programs at the discretion of the instructor.

  • Certificate of Attendance
    Although audited courses are not eligible for college credit, a student may request a certificate of attendance through the Registrar’s Office. This request must be made at the time of registration and may be picked up after the last day of class.
  • Certificate of Completion
    Certificates of completion for individual courses may be requested at the time of registration.  Receipt of a certificate requires a minimum of 80% attendance.  Students requesting certificates may pick them up after the last day of class from the Registrar’s Office.
  • One-Year Certificate (Non-Credit)
    This certificate is designed for the person who does not want or need a college degree but desires written proof of commitment, regular attendance, and exposure to excellent teaching.  It is equivalent to one full year of study, whether taken in one year or longer.  A completed application for the certificate will allow you to begin this process.  This award will be made at the end of the school year upon the completion of 30 semester units, to include a minimum of five units in biblical studies.
  • Two-Year Certificate (Non-Credit)
    This certificate is equivalent to two full years of study.  A completed application will allow a student to begin the process.  The academic advisor will work out a program specifically designed for the student at that time.  This award will be made at the end of the school year in which 60 semester units are completed.  The semester units must include a minimum of 10 units on specific books of the Bible or bible survey courses.  It may also include a practicum in the area of your ministry or major interest.
  • Denominational Certification
    Some denominations have designed programs to meet their specific needs.  When requested, TCCTC cooperatively plans programs to meet these unique requirements.  If preferred, these programs may be taken for credit.

Come and See!
TCCTC’s Open House and Orientation is a great opportunity to get to know us. Prior to the fall and winter/spring semesters, TCCTC holds an open house for students, area pastors, churches and local ministries. This event includes an orientation for new and returning students.  During orientation, students have the opportunity to meet faculty and staff, familiarize themselves with school standards and the TCCTC campus, receive academic advisement, gain knowledge of study programs and study aids, financial counseling, scholarships, and register for classes.
