To request a transcript, please download and submit a transcript request form. The form can be returned by mail, fax, or email, but must have an official signature (electronic signatures are not permitted). There is a $6.00 charge per transcript which can be paid by check or credit card by calling 1-800-992-4987.
In accordance with the Family Educational Rights and Privacy of Act of 1974 (FERPA), as amended, Winebrenner Theological Seminary (WTS) is restricted from releasing student information of any nature to third parties, with the exception of “directory” information which may be disclosed without the student’s knowledge. If a student wishes such directory information to be withheld from the student directory on Blackboard, denominational questionnaires, etc., it is their responsibility to notify WTS in writing of their wish to opt out of inclusion in such directories.
WTS does, on occasion, receive requests for additional student information (primarily financial accounts or academic progress), and students MUST complete this form regarding access to such information by third parties.
New and continuing students must register for courses each term during the registration period (Fall courses - late July; Spring courses - late November; Summer courses - late March). Returning students who do not make contact with the Registrar's Office prior to the registration deadline (Fall - August 1; Spring - December 1; Summer - April 1) will be assessed a $50 late registration fee.
The purpose of an extension is to make a provision for students who are experiencing serious illness or the death of a family member, for an additional allotment of time to complete their course projects. To begin this process, a student must initiate contact with the course professor by the final class session (or in the case of a one-week intensive, the due date of the final projects) to request, via completion of this form
, an extension for the course projects.
Regularly scheduled courses at the seminary may be taken outside of the scheduled time frame on the basis of directed study only when the course cannot be taken at the regularly scheduled time because of an irreconcilable scheduling conflict affecting the normal degree progress of a student.
To begin the process of requesting a Directed Study, submit a Directed Study form
explaining their unusual circumstances requiring the directed study delivery format.
Independent research courses involve in-depth investigations or other kinds of extensive projects undertaken by individual students in consultation with a faculty member. An independent research course does not duplicate the essential content of any course regularly offered in a classroom setting, but provides opportunity for students who have demonstrated the capability to go beyond the seminary’s regular course offerings, in both depth and scope.
Upon approval of a course prospectus by the Registrar and Academic Dean, the student will need to complete the Independent Research Application Form
with the assigned instructor and submit it to the Registrar.
