IPS Fall 2018 Courses

 IPS_Fall_2018_Courses

IPS is a member of ACTS (Association of Chicago Theological Schools), which means that our students may take courses at one of the other member schools. To review a list of courses offered via the association, please click here. Click here for more information about cross-registration within ACTS. The following form is needed when registering ACTS_Cross-Registration_Form

  • An ACTS class "counts" toward the total number of credits that a student can transfer into IPS, unless there is a compelling reason otherwise. For example, M.Div. students who need credits for denominational or ordination requirements may take additional ACTS courses.
  • Ideally, and because of the processes involved, a student registers for an ACTS class (submits the signed and approved form to the IPS) at least three weeks prior to the start of a semester. 
  • It is recommended that IPS core courses are not taken via ACTS unless there is a compelling reason.
  • IPS students who cross register to take courses at other ACTS schools are responsible for understanding and following the IPS academic calendar in regard to registration, add/drop, billing, withdrawal, and associated deadlines. Some ACTS schools may have different semester start dates and deadlines for their courses. Still, for all matters other than class start and end dates, the IPS academic calendar applies to IPS students even when taking an ACTS course.
