The seminary provides an educational program for students who desire to become ministers, mediums and healers.
In compliance with the State Council of Higher Education for Virginia (SCHEV), the following statement applies: “UMC’s Primary purpose is to provide religious training and theological education and is exempt from the requirement of state certification.”
IMPORTANT CHANGES TO THE UMC SEMINARY PROGRAM STARTING IN 2014
ALL STUDENTS PLEASE NOTE!
Beginning in the SPRING SESSION of 2014, there will be SIX days of classes. Currently, registration day falls on a Sunday and classes run Monday-Friday. In the next year and thereafter, Registration Day will still be Sunday, but classes will run Monday through Saturday. Pre-registration for the next session would remain the next day, Sunday, following the Closing Ceremony on Saturday night. This avoids any additional weekdays off from work.
In the 2014 FALL SESSION, because of the proximity to the UMC Convention, we will report a day early. Currently, Registration Day falls on on Friday and classes are held Saturday through Wednesday. In 2014 and beyond, registration will take place on THURSDAY. Classes will run Friday through Wednesday. Pre-Registration for the following year will be Thursday morning following the Closing Ceremony on Wednesday night.
PLEASE PLAN ACCORDINGLY!
