Application for Equivalent Degrees

CMM College of Theology, in cooperation with the Association of Independent Christian Colleges and Seminaries, offers an innovative educational program to honor and recognize experienced Bible teachers by presenting them with Equivalent Bible College degrees. Through CMM College of Theology, this new credentialing endeavor is designed to furnish legitimate academic credentials to persons with many years of Bible teaching experience but who have not been privileged to graduate from a Bible college or theological seminary.

Our accreditation has approved CMM to confer Equivalent Degrees upon teachers with credible, documented, and verified years of teaching the Bible. These years of teaching are evaluated within three categories: (1) teaching Sunday School or other short-term, small group church-based Bible classes for youth or adult students, (2) teaching in-depth Bible expository studies using formal textbooks, classroom discussions, and examinations for non-degree adult students, {3 ) teaching Bible college or seminary-level Bible courses, with students earning undergraduate or graduate credits and degrees.

Persons applying for an Equivalent Degree must be active members in good standing of a local church. The Equivalent Degree Personal Profile questionnaire details and documents all information about a Bible teacher’s educational background, past and present teaching assignments, books, and articles written and requires three written personal references. CMM College of Theology will issue an official signed transcript and diploma certificate upon receipt of the Equivalent Degree application form. The degree awarded will be decided after the application review; the fee will be due then. Please do not send payments until we study your history.

The equivalency transcript and diploma fee is $300 for the first degree. After that, the price drops to $100 for the second one. If you feel you qualify for the Master of Ministry degree and do not have transcripts for the Bachelor’s degree, you will need that second transcript, too. If you have any questions, do not hesitate to contact us.

Equivalency Form Fee $300.00 to be paid at the end of the form.
