A step-by-step guide for applying and what to expect when beginning your courses with IAI.

What to expect when applying as a degree seeking student with IAI

  1. ​Begin by choosing a major. IAI offers majors in Theology, Bible, and Ministry. While there are overlapping courses, the ultimate academic goal of each course is specific to the major. Theology is the study of God and divine themes in the broadest terms of a 14-point systematic theology (theology proper, Christology, pneumatology, soteriology, eschatology, etc.). Bible is the specific theological field related to the Bible, its history, interpretation, and methods of study. Ministry encompasses basics of theology with a focus on biblical doctrine, church government, ethics, communication, and ministerial training. 

  2. Submit an application and pay the application fee. With the application you will need to submit a brief biography along with an explanation of your reasons for beginning your studies with IAI and what you plan to do with the knowledge you acquire through our coursework. Please be as specific as possible in your answers. 

  3. Expect a response from our Registrar within 14 business days. The Registrar's response may include requests for further information we will need in order to process your application. Please be ready to answer all questions thoroughly and as accurately as possible. 

  4. Pay the matriculation fee. The matriculation fee is a one-time fee for newly enrolling students and encompasses all further fees that would normally be associated with your academic program with the exception of the final diploma fee paid at graduation. Students returning to a further degree program will not be charged another matriculation fee. However, certain fees apply to students who are in a lapsed status. 

  5. Create an account at Thinkific. Once your application is accepted and the matriculation fee is paid, you will receive an email with a link and instructions for creating your account at Thinkific - the curriculum delivery platform utilized by IAI. 

  6. Select the appropriate courses at Thinkific, complete payment, and begin your coursework as soon as possible. That's it! You're all set to continue your education with the International Apostolic Institute. Courses will be completed using the IAI Student Portal at Thinkific. Exams will be completed using the Testmoz interface. You will not be required to create a Testmoz account.
