Take a Class
We encourage prospective students as well as alumni/ae and teaching pastors to take classes with us during our intensive terms and have incentives for both to do so.
We think the best way for you to get to know our learning community is to become a part of it. For this reason, we allow prospective students to take one class for credit at the audit price (half the normal tuition). Join us in January, March or July and take either a weekend or week-long intensive. Contact Justine Urbikas, Assistant Director of Recruitment, for more information and recommendations on which classes would be the best for you.
If you decide to take a class with us, start by completing the Student At Large Application page. The application fee for the Student At Large status will be applied to the application for admission to a degree program should you decide to apply to our programs after taking the class. For more information, please contact Justine Urbikas.
Graduates of Meadville Lombard are always an asset to our learning environment—providing insight from current ministry experiences. Per our Alumni/ae Audit Policy graduates have two options to take a course:
Courses taken under this policy do not qualify for credit toward a degree program.
Attendance/registration for courses is dependent on seat availability and is subject to professor approval and enrollment standards. Registration and technology fees do apply (see the policy). For more information about registration, please contact the Director of Student Records.
Current Teaching Pastors are entitled to audit one class each year at Meadville Lombard. As we encourage Teaching Pastors to attend the January Learning Convocation each year their student minister is in a Signature Course, we also encourage them to stay and take a course either the weekend or week after the January Learning Convocation. For more information on this, please contact the Director of Contextual Ministry.
