A  WORD  FROM  THE  ACADEMIC DEAN

 
Dr. Larry McCullough
President

Dear student,

Welcome to FLET University! This web site is designed to help you choose the program of studies that will permit you to reach your goals and objectives, and guide you in the implementation of a biblical education program in your church.  With your education, you will contribute to the edification of the Body of Christ with integrity and excellence.

We know that it is difficult in our day to acquire a quality education that permits you to communicate effectively and profoundly the teachings of the Scriptures. Faced with this situation, FLET University--specializing in distance education--offers you the opportunity to enrich your biblical and theological knowledge, and at the same time obtain an academic degree in one of the professional areas of our undergraduate and graduate programs.

The practical system of study utilized by FLET University is distance education. This system has many advantages: the student can study part time while he is working; he can study in his home or office; he does not have to leave his own city; and he can complete his studies while serving a congregation, or during his free time. This mode of study has the same academic value as a residence institution. Furthermore, FLET University accepts credit for courses studied in other institutions.

The methodology of the courses designed by FLET includes study guides, textbooks, and other materials. You can study as an individual or you can meet in small discussion and study groups if you desire. We encourage you to take advantage of this extraordinary method of study. We assure you that it will enrich your knowledge and that you will be satisfied with what you learn.

May God bless you and guide you in your search for training that permits you to greatly enlarge your ministry and your effectiveness as a servant of God. 

 Serving you and Christ,

 Larry McCullough

TEACHING  METHODOLOGY

 The educational method implemented by FLET is known as “distance education”, which uses pedagogical materials designed to train the student in the art of self-study. This methodology takes the student through stages, so that he learns the biblical-theological contents of the program as he learns to use different research and study methods.  During the learning process, the student will develop habits that will serve him for a lifetime of service in the church of the Lord Jesus Christ. 

 The process is as follows: The student should apply for admission to the program of preference, and send the corresponding payments for annual registration and for the first course. Then he should purchase the textbook for the course for which he has registered. The textbook includes the plan of studies (study guide), which details the manner in which he is to comply with the course requirements. In addition, we include a facilitator’s (or tutor’s) manual, which gives instructions about leading a group of students--if the students have formed such a group--including questions for discussion and guidelines for the course in general.

Each undergraduate course is designed for eight weeks of study. Nevertheless, it may be taken in as little as four weeks. The maximum time limit for a course is sixteen weeks (see the explanation of the Policy for incomplete courses). Two weeks before finishing the course, the student or facilitator should communicate with the office of FLET University to request the final exam.

CHRISTIAN MINISTRY

One of the purposes of FLET University is to prepare students for Christian ministry. This necessitates commitment and dedication in the service of Christ. For this reason, the University requires that students taking four or more courses in a one-year period participate in a regular significant ministry of evangelism and discipleship. By fulfilling this requirement the student complements his/her theological academic development.
