Student Petitions

With the exception of pass/fail requests, student petitions require approval of the Academic Cabinet, which meets once each month. Students are responsible for submitting completed petitions, including the signature of their academic advisor, by uploading the NPTS Student Petition PDF to this submission form; monthly deadlines are listed on the submission form. In completing your petition, please be mindful of policies outlined in the Seminary Academic Catalog.

Requests to complete a course pass/fail can be made through the Student Petition Form and sent directly to Seminary Academic Services; the form must be submitted within the the first four weeks of the term.

Academic Support

North Park Theological Seminary provides a variety of academic support resources for students including faculty advisors, library research services, the NPU Writing Center, and courses for writing development. Contact Seminary Academic Services for details.

Vocational Development

Your Seminary career will be enriched by set activities that address your vocational development alongside your academic preparation. Some of these are requirements while others are courses or activities you can choose to participate in. For students who anticipate future service in the Evangelical Covenant Church, these opportunities include a Call to Ministry process which will help you understand the process as well as get a head start on building relationships and preparing for a call.
