How to Enroll and Register for a Course

Begin by filling out the enrollment form.

There are three ways to participate in courses at the Founders Study Center. On the form, please select one of the following three options and complete the requested information:

1) Directed Studies: Students are guided through a course by a course mentor. Directed studies courses are offered during the Spring (January—May), Summer (May–September), or Fall (September—January) semesters. Students may choose from any of our available courses.

For the Summer semester (May 9 to September 30, 2016) there are 7 available courses:

Preaching and Preachers (16-sessions)
Theology of the Reformers (16-sessions)
Spiritual Depression (16-sessions)
Evangelism and Excellencies of God (10-sessions)
Worship (10-sessions)
Intro to the Puritans (10-sessions)
Baptist Covenant Theology (10-sessions)

See our current course catalog for more information on these courses.

Students in directed studies will have access to their chosen course (both 16-session and 10-session courses) for the full duration of the semester (until September 30, 2016). See Important Dates.

2) Free Course Audit: Each semester we will offer a course that students can audit free. Our free course audit for the Summer 2016 semester (May 9 to September 30, 2016) is the 10–session Evangelism course.

3) Full Site Subscription: Students will have unlimited access to all our available courses (currently there are 7 courses online; see above). Students can select from 1 to 5 months or a full year. The first month is free.

Orientation for Summer 2016 semester will begin on May 3, 2016. Students who enroll for the summer semester will be given access to the Student Forum on May 3rd to participate in orientation. The spring semester officially begins May 9, 2016. See Important Dates.


Auditing a Course

If you wish to audit the Evangelism course this summer, you can sign up for our free course audit. If you wish to audit another course (or courses) you can register for our full site subscription and select the amount of time you wish to have access to the course(s).


Finding a Mentor

Students who are taking a course as directed studies are responsible to make arrangements for a course mentor.

It is our conviction that the proper place of training for the ministry is not online, but in the church. While the Internet is a great means of making resources available, it is no substitute for personal training and discipleship. Therefore this Study Center serves in conjunction with a mentoring program that allows students to work through courses as directed studies with respected, experienced pastors. You can find the list of pastors available to mentor our courses under Current Course Mentors. A list of available openings for new students as well as contact information for each mentor will be available in the Student Forum.


What Will It Cost?

If you are signing up for our free course audit or trying our full site subscription for one month, you can do so at no cost. If you are registering to take a course as directed studies or enrolling for the full site subscription for more than one month, you will need to send in course fees.
