We believe your online Westminster degree is next step in both your effectiveness in ministry as well as your own personal growth. We hope that the new student orientation prepares you to fully utilize all of the resources that our program offers. The online orientation is required of every admitted student before they begin courses and become fully enrolled students. Orientation helps students integrate into the Westminster online community as it
- introduces students to the online educational experience
- casts a vision for the values and focus of the program
- allows them to become acquainted with the tools, and
- provides essential policy and procedural information for students to sign off on before they begin.
The entire orientation experience is done online, and typically takes between 1-2 hours. It will require students to complete new student forms, set up the systems needed to be a successful online student, and practice the processes of online education. Students must complete this prior to the beginning of their first term.
