Non-Degree Seeking Students Welcome!
At Heartland Christian College, we understand that God, in His wisdom, has us all in different seasons. If you don’t sense God calling you to complete the associate degree or certificate at this time but would like to take one or several of our classes, we welcome you to join us! Each semester we endeavor to offer theologically rich, challenging courses available Monday evenings, as well as during the morning and afternoon.
Taking our classes will enable you to:
- Grow in your knowledge and understanding of God’s Word
- Apply foundational biblical teaching in future decisions and develop one’s capacity to think clearly and critically according to the Bible
- Explain one’s convictions regarding their faith in Christ, in inerrancy of His Word, and living with a biblical worldview
Many times our non-degree seeking students bring a fresh, real-world perspective to our classroom discussions that our professors appreciate. Also, you might be thinking God is calling you to complete a degree or certificate but are not certain. Taking one or several of our classes would only contribute to that very important decision.
APPLICATION & POLICIES
The admissions process for non-degree seeking students is an adaptation of the normal admissions process. Such students submit an Application for Admission form, available from Admissions. These applicants are not required to have a high school completion or equivalent; however, academic progress of these students is monitored in an attempt to help all students receive the most from their courses.
Non-degree seeking students are accepted on a first-come, first-serve basis, however degree-seeking students have priority in class enrollment.
