FIRST TIME STUDENTS: select, download, complete and mail the Student Information Sheet to Lisa Tappe: 2421 Hess Avenue – Wheeling, WV 26003. Once completed, you will be in the system and will only need to update if any information changes.
Select and complete the appropriate Course Registration Form. Please note The General Board has replaced the Social Security Number with a PID number. If you have your PID, please use it. If you do not know your PID number, contact Pamela Frost at GBHEM to obtain it. You may email her at firstname.lastname@example.org. Make certain you know which courses you have taken and which you still need. There was a curriculum change in 1999 so you may need to use a course conversion sheet to be certain. If you need a transcript contact Pamela. She is the only one with all the transcripts.
During a term, you may take up to two courses. Courses are listed in two columns on the Course Registration Form. You may choose only one course from each column. An example might be:
___ #122: Theological Heritage ___ #123: Formation for Discipleship
_X_ #321: Bible III _X_ #323: Congregational Care
___ #522: Theology Contemporary ___ #523: Evangelism
Print the registration form, sign it and obtain signatures from your District Superintendent and your Conference’s Local Pastor Registrar. Be certain All Three Required Signatures are on the form.(Contact your District Superintendent or your Annual Conference Office for contact information of your Local Pastor Registrar.)
