Block Hybrid Courses

 

Why Attend?

Block Hybrid Courses allow you to complete up to 3 hours of residency in three days!

What are Block Hybrid Courses?

DTS has designed this special breed of Online and Distance Education course. It’s a course format that utilizes everything you’re already accustomed to in a typical online course, but it includes a 3-day face-to-face instruction and interaction component.

Will I have to do any course work before I come to Dallas and after I return home?

Yes. These courses have pre- and post- course work that will span the entire semester (May 15-Aug 4). To learn more about a SIC course or to preview a course syllabus, please see the Courses page

Is there a schedule for the week?

As we get closer to the SIC dates, the schedule for the intensive component (June 12-16 & June 19-23) will be posted hereNote: We blocked the 17th and 24th off for your travel back home. There are no events scheduled these days.

What is the registration deadline for SIC?

SIC registration deadlines are the same as all other Summer 2017 courses. Please refer to the Registration schedule at: http://www.dts.edu/departments/campus/registrar/

Participants

Who can participate in a SIC?

Priority will be given to mobile and distance education students, because SIC was designed for the mobile MA/CL degree program and other distance education students. However, all students are welcome to participate, if space is available. Mobile and distance education students should pre-register (on the SIC website) from February 1 to March 6, 2017 to guarantee their spot. After March 7, 2017,  all students, including Dallas campus students, are eligible to register for SIC.

Can my spouse audit one or both courses?
Possibly. Spouses of students may be able to audit one or both courses each week. There are a limited number of seats available, however. Contact the professor for each course for more information. Your spouse may register to audit a SIC course through the Registrar’s office (registrar@dts.edu). Spouses who audit SIC courses are required to purchase the meal package.

Tuition & Cost

How much does it cost?

The total cost will include tuition and fees plus the cost of your meal package for the week ($65). Note: Lodging and transportation are not included.

Are there any special payment arrangements for a SIC?
When combined with tuition and fees, SIC can be paid for through the TMS program. Contact the Bursar’s office for more details.
Can I use the seminary payment system (TMS) for the meal package at DTS?
Yes, please contact the Bursar’s office for more details.
Is financial aid available for SIC courses?
Financial Aid is not available during the Summer session. Contact the Financial Aid Office for details.
How will this type of class be certified with the VA?
The courses will be certified as resident courses, from the beginning to ending dates of the semester. Therefore, VA benefits can be used for tuition and fees (possibly even hotel and food charges—check with your VA representative) for SIC courses.
What is the cancellation deadline and do I get a refund?

Cancellation and refunds will follow the seminary’s refund schedule as outlined in the catalog. 

Is the cost of hotel, food, etc. included in the tuition cost?

No. The cost of the hotels, transportation and meals are separate from tuition cost. The meal package will be added to your account separately.
