The RSOT is committed to providing higher education. Our concern for academic excellence emanates from the belief that Christian higher education should be superior, not inferior, to that provided by other colleges and universities. Therefore, every effort is made to provide the academic excellence worthy of a school dedicated to the Lord and necessary for the education of those preparing for service to the Lord in the days to come.
All RSOT degree programs are remote learning-based allowing students to join courses through real-time video conferencing, allowing rich interaction and discussion.
Ideally, the degree plans are set up for a student who enrolls at the Diploma of Biblical Studies level and continues on through the completion of the Doctor of Theology Degree program. Cumulatively from start to finish, the student would earn 240 credit hours.
The cumulative semester hours including the transfer of any approved credits that are required for graduation are listed below:
|Diploma in Biblical Studies||30 Credit Hours|
|Associate of Theology||60 Credit Hours|
|Bachelor of Theology||120 Credit Hours|
|Master of Theology||180 Credit Hours|
|Doctor of Theology||240 Credit Hours|
In cases where students already have bible college credit or Theology degrees, their transcripts will be evaluated to determine what courses are eligible for substitution under the current degree plan and graduation requirements. To ensure appropriate student placement, after transcript evaluation and transfer of proper credit, a degree plan will be developed for students to ensure they meet all graduation requirements.
