Proficiency Exams

STLTS recognizes that knowledge is gained through dedicated Bible study; therefore, credit hours will be awarded to students who, in lieu of taking an STLTS course, take a Proficiency Exam and receive a grade of "B" or better.

The Proficiency Exam is designed to demonstrate thorough knowledge of material that is covered in a specific course offered in the Seminary. The Proficiency Exam grade becomes the final grade for the course.  

The exam grade will be used in calculating the GPA for credits earned at STLTS. The number of credit hours awarded is equal to that of the specific course offered at STLTS.  Requests for Proficiency Exams are made during course registration each semester.
