Applicants for graduation are considered by the Faculty Senate which recommends them to the Board of Governors based on scholastic achievement. Students with a 3.75 cumulative GPA are recommended to graduate with honours. The Faculty Senate recognizes that particular ministries require certain gifts, character traits and levels of maturity beyond what can be gained in a short time at Seminary. Therefore, the Senate’s recommendation to the Board implies only that the student has adequately fulfilled course requirements in terms of skills and knowledge, not that they are now qualified for a particular ministry. Members of the Faculty are available to give ministry references for individual students. Applications for graduation submitted after the February board meeting cannot be considered for graduation in that year. Attendance at the commencement ceremony is required of all graduates unless application is made and special permission is granted to graduate in absentia.
University College Graduation Requirements
Attendance at the commencement ceremony is required of all graduates unless application is made and special permission is granted to graduate in absentia. The graduation class is approved by the Board of Governors upon the recommendation of the Senate. In the programs of study at Providence certain requirements are made of each prospective graduate. They are as follows:
Candidates for graduation are expected to maintain a satisfactory level of proficiency in their oral and written use of the English language.
Each student is expected to satisfactorily complete Field Service units as specified in Academic Regulations for Bachelor Degrees.
All financial obligations to Providence are to be satisfactorily settled before a student will be granted the graduation certificate. In the event that a satisfactory settlement is not reached, the student will be permitted to participate in the graduation ceremony, but the certificate or degree will not be conferred until all financial obligations are settled.
