Credits in Advanced Standing
All applicants to the Post Graduate programs at SITS have their academic transcript fully reviewed. We have two educational pathways, an academic pathway (PGD—>MA—>MTh—>PhD) and a professional pathway (MDIV—>DMin).
Every student we accept is given an individualised program that is most suitable for them, depending on the pathway they choose and their previous academic performance.
For most students, this means they are accepted onto a relevant program. For example, a student with no academic theological background wishing to study in the academic pathway may be accepted onto the PGD in Biblical Studies (36 credits), whereas a student with a good GPA in a previous theological degree may be accepted onto the BrCert in Biblical Languages (9 credits) as the only requirement prior to the MA in Biblical Studies (72 credits). Full information about our programs and their requirements is available on this page: https://sits.edu.et/programs/post-grad-programs
If and once accepted, all students have full access to your personal academic record and requirements by logging into the website, and going to "My SITS"—>"Academic Record".
The criteria for what can and cannot be accepted as credits in advanced standing is set by our accreditor ACTEA, and everything we do at Shiloh is a working out of their policies. For credits to be accepted in Advanced Standing:
- You must have a relevant qualification in Theology or Biblical Studies at least at the 4th year level of Bachelors or above.
- If your previous degree was a Bachelors degree, it must have been a 4 year degree. Outside of Ethiopia these are normally called "Honours" degrees. Since this title is not awarded in Ethiopia, the fourth year of a Bachelors is accepted as equivalent to an honours degree.
- Your degree, or equivalent qualification, must be awarded by an accredited school from an accreditation body that is recognised by ACTEA. An example of the sort of accreditation body that we cannot accept is an accreditation body owned or operated by a church in the USA.
- We are unable to transfer credits from a 3 year degree to the Post Graduate programs.
- You must have covered topics in your previous degree that overlap with content from the Post Graduate programs.
- You must have received sufficiently high grades in the GPA of your previous degree, and in the individual courses that will be taken in advanced standing.
The Post Graduate Academic Dean travels to all campuses once a month. If you need your academic record explained to you, please book an appointment with him next time he is travelling.
If you are a current student and wish to have your academic record re-reviewed:
- Please submit an application on the website to apply for the program you are currently studying on. (Please do not be careless! For example, if you are on the MDiv, and apply for the MA, then this will be understood as a request to switch to the academic pathway.)
- Attach all your certificates and transcript documents you wish to be taken into account in the re-review.
