Online Courses for Credit

CDSP offers online graduate courses for credit each semester. If you are not currently a student at CDSP or one of the other seminaries in the Graduate Theological Union, you must be admitted to CDSP as an online student to register for an online class. This requirement includes students at seminaries outside the GTU who wish to transfer credit to another school. To receive an application form as an online student, contact the CDSP admissions office.
