NESOM classes are offered 9 times from August to May.  Each session offers one course from the list of courses for each level of credentialing; Certified Minister, Licensed Minister and Ordained Minister.  Students can do internships in June and July.  Enrolled NESOM students must register and pay for courses at least 4 weeks prior to the date scheduled for the class.

Before Class

Students are responsible for reading the textbook and answering the Interactive Questions.  Textbooks will be mailed directly to the student from Global University. The student’s answers to the Interactive Questions will be turned in during the first class session on Friday night.  These answers represent 20% of the student’s overall grade for the course.  Reading the text book and answering the Interactive Questions will take a typical student 15-20 hours.
