Admission & Registration

Course Load, Calendar and Class Schedule

Course Load
Most E.I. students are part-time students taking one or two classes. A full-time load is nine credits (half-time = six credits). New students may enroll in up to six credits without permission from the Office of Admissions and Academic Services. Continuing students may enroll in up to nine credits (six in summer term) without permission from their advisor. Students on probation are normally permitted to enroll in no more than three credits per term.

Calendar and Class Schedule
The Ecumenical Institute of Theology has a calendar of two 14-week semesters and a 6-week summer session. The semesters run from early September to mid-December and from mid-January to early May. The summer session is held in June and July.

Classes are generally held in the evening, Monday through Thursday, with some meeting in the late afternoon and on Saturdays. To see a typical fall, spring, or summer schedule, go to Semester Information.

On the evenings of the first class meetings of the term, E.I. staff are on duty to assist students in completing registration, paying bills, purchasing books, and obtaining a library card.
