Dallas Theological Seminary has officially recognized the Grace Fellows Program within their new Advanced Standing program. As a result, Grace Fellows Program participants who continue on to attend Dallas Theological Seminary can reduce the length of their degree by up to 1 year (or 25%) by successfully completing the program. This credit is achieved through 1) the accelerated program for specific Dallas campus applicants (using qualifying credits from an ABHE or CCCU accredited undergraduate degree, or an approved parachurch training) or 2) the course-by-course program*.
In order to qualify for such a degree reduction of hours within the new Advanced Standing program at Dallas Theological Seminary, the following is required.
- 2 years within the Grace Fellows Program
- Satisfactory completion of a 75-100 question objective exam
- Submission of a written artifact of academic work
- Interview with member(s) of the Advanced Standing Committee
- Completion of an objective exam for each course
