Trinity Evangelical Christian University currently offers four complete Oxford Method Self-Study Degree Tracks for our Ministers – the Christian Ministry Administration Track, Christian Apologetics Track, the Christian Counseling / Pastoral Psychology Track and the Theology / Divinity Track. Each Track contains self-study curriculum for Associate through Doctoral Level Degrees. Our programs of study are progressive, meaning you must begin with the associate level, if you do not already hold an equivalent degree. (e.g. If you already hold an Associate degree in any field, you would begin your studies with our Bachelor level, and so on)
Trinity has been empowering workers in the field for Christ since 1999, and we aren’t going anywhere. We are the official private Christian Distance Learning Seminary of the United New Testament Church, International, and we verify all degrees for potential employers.
As we are a private religious seminary, enrollment in TECU is open only to members of The United New Testament Church, International Ministry Association. Please ensure you have at least the minimum active Associate Membership before proceeding. Your annual Ministry Association membership must be maintained throughout the duration of your enrollment at TECU. The active online fellowship, support and connectivity of the Body of Christ are integral to your educational growth at TECU.
In order to earn your Degree, you must follow these steps, in order:
1) Complete the Required Prerequisites: First Steps 101 and First Steps 201. Each student at TECU must complete these short Required Prerequisite Courses before proceeding with their education. The Required Prerequisites are foundational to our educational approach, and to your success as a student. You do not have to take them at each educational level – they simply must only be completed once before entering our educational system.
3) Purchase the Required Texts from the Online Campus Bookstore. TECU Required Texts for each level are between 4 and 7 titles, all readily available and extremely
affordable, new or used. To review and purchase your Required Texts, simply navigate to your degree specialty using the navigation links to the right of the page in the Online Campus Bookstore.
4) Complete the following for EACH Required Text: All papers should be
typed, double-spaced, and free of grammatical or spelling errors.
a) Write a three to five page essay, comprised of one to two paragraph summaries of each chapter of the individual Required Text. (Note: Some texts may require the essay to go beyond five pages, which is fine. The main point being that a summary of each chapter must be included in the essay.)
b) Write a one to two page essay describing how the individual Required Text may be beneficial to you in your personal life and Christian ministry.
c) Repeat these requirements for EACH of the Required Texts for your chosen Degree. DO NOT upload these to the Ministry office individually – they must be contained in ONE PDF document. (Click here for a FREE PDF writer)
d) Once you have completed ALL Requirements, they must be sent as an email attachment to the Student Affairs Office (studentaffairs @ trinitycampus dot org) in PDF format. The file MUST be named like this: YOURFIRSTINITIAL.YOURLASTNAME.YOURDEGREE.pdf (Example:
5) Within 2-4 weeks from the date we receive your Candidacy Submission, your submission is reviewed, your graduation is declared, and your degree & supporting documents will be shipped to you. As a matter of established recordkeeping standards, your graduation date will be documented as the date your submission was uploaded to our server.
Your degree is not processed until after your enrollment contribution has been received and your candidacy document has been submitted.
All enrollment contributions are non-refundable.
