First Class Free

If you are a certified teacher through ACSI, you can take your first course with DTS free. All you need to do is apply and be approved, and then we’ll help you register for your free class!

Earn CEUs or graduate credit through DTS

If you enroll in and successfully complete a Dallas Theological Seminary course, ACSI will credit this toward your required CEUs. DTS courses are typically 2-3 credit hours, and each credit hour is equivalent to 3 CEUs (A 3hr class yields 9 CEUs). Further, with DTS’s full range of bible and theology courses, you’ll have the opportunity to become a Bible Teacher Specialist.

Earn 11-12 hrs credit for serving with ACSI

If you're currently working as an ACSI certified teacher at least 25 hours weekly, you may be eligible for DTS's dynamic Ministry Residency program within the MACE, MACL, or ThM program. DTS comes alongside you, integrating readings and competencies with your ministry, and you earn up to 12 hours credit. You're already doing the work, why not get credit for it?

Classes online or on location

DTS began offering on-the-ground class right in Colorado Springs in Fall 2014! Additionally, we offer classes online or at one of our eight locations, where you can complete a degree. We have extension sites in Atlanta, Austin, Houston, San Antonio, and Washington, DC.
