Online vs. Guest Student

Online Student

Online students are individuals who are taking a class via the internet. Online students may be enrolled in one of our campus-based masters programs or our M.A. in English Bible, which can be taken completely online. Online students may also be guest students, taking just a class or two rather than enrolling in a program. Audit options are available for online students.

Guest Student

Guest students are individuals who desire to take classes at Maranatha Baptist Seminary, but who have not yet or do not intend to enroll in a specific program of study. Guest students are invited to take any course on-campus, on-line, or in a modular format. Students accepted under a guest student application may take up to 12 credits without being enrolled in a program. Guest students may apply at any time to a graduate program. Audit options are also available.
