Online Courses

All online courses are open to students enrolled in one of Garrett-Evangelical’s graduate degrees, certificates, or enrichment programs and most are available for auditing. Enrollment for students wishing to audit is subject to approval by the professor. We have twelve accredited online courses offered in a two-year rotation. Students may enroll in these online courses to fulfill part of their degree or program.

If you're yearning to enhance your ministry, now is the time to immerse yourself in a dynamic course taught by outstanding faculty. 

Alums wishing to audit an online course should complete the Alum Auditor Request Form and submit the completed form directly to the registrar (registrar@garrett.edu). The registrar will then confirm availability with the course instructor and set up the registration. Alums pay the current audit rate for degree students to participate in the course. Alums receive 1 CEU per semester hour of the course completed.

For more information on online courses at Garrett-Evangelical, contact Dr. Brooke Lester, Director of Digital Learning and Assistant Professor of Hebrew Scripture.

For more information on these courses see the Course Syllabi. Courses are subject to change, please check the most recent Course Schedule for an accurate listing.

Priority for most online courses will be given to new and distance students as well as current students who have only taken online courses. Once registration begins, students who meet the criteria for priority registration may contact the Registrar, Vince McGlothin-Eller, to register. Priority registration ends one month before registration ends. At that time, any remaining seats are open to all students.
