Free Course Audit Policy for Church Leaders

M.A.B.C., M.A.U.M., M.A.R., and M.Div. Programs

Westminster is offering one free audit course per semester for people in official ministry positions in the church for up to four people per church. To reserve your space:

1. See the Registrar's Office page under Course Schedules to review the course schedule for the term.

Eligible courses are from the M.A.B.C, M.A.U.M., M.A.R. and M.Div. programs of study only. All language classes are excluded for audit. Please be sure to register as early as possible so classes may be planned for space availability; some courses may be closed out due to high enrollment.

2. Request your church to send a letter on church letterhead stating that you are a ruling elder or deacon (exceptions will be considered) and are thus eligible for the free audit.

3. Fill out the Church Leader Audit Application form , either online or with the PDF on that page.

4. Mail or fax the letter (along with the application PDF if you did not fill out the above form online) to:
