Non-Degree Programs: Unclassified Students

The University of Dubuque Theological Seminary offers graduate-level theology courses online for those who are not currently enrolled in a degree program. A Bachelor's Degree is required. Early application is highly recommended as enrollment is limited.

Tuition for these courses is $735 per credit hour and is non-refundable. Unclassified students may take up to six hours per semester, three hours in the May or August term, or six hours during the summer. Unclassified students wishing to enroll for more than the above number of hours must first obtain the written permission of the Dean of the seminary. Those who obtain such permission and who register for nine semester hours or more will be subject to the student fee. A student may earn a maximum of 12 credits in unclassified status.

UNCLASSIFIED STUDENT ADMISSION FORM: Anyone who desires to take courses online must first be admitted to the seminary. Upon admission, you will be able to continue to take up to 12 credits in a two-year period.
