How Do I Get Started in the RHEMA Alumni Audit Program?
1. Refer to the RBTC Calendar and take note of the deadlines for enrolling and paying your fees for each term. The term deadlines and course fees are also listed on the course enrollment form.
2. Complete the application and enrollment form and return it with payment to the Admission’s Office of RHEMA Bible Training Center (located in SDC1) or mail it to the address at the top of the application form. Be sure to mail the form before the deadline. The Admissions Office is open Monday through Thursday, 8:15 – 4:00 p.m; and on Fridays, 8:15– 1:30 p.m.

Alumni may enroll in the RHEMA Alumni Audit Program in one of the following ways:
1. If you have completed one year of RHEMA, you may ONLY enroll in first-year courses that are currently offered.
2. If you have completed two years of RHEMA, you may enroll in either first- or second-year courses that are currently offered.
3. If you have completed one of the third-year programs, RSPM, RSW, RSWM, or RSBS you may enroll in either first- or second-year courses that are currently offered.
4. Alumni may audit any course provided there is availability, as regular students have priority.
Note: There are some courses that share a term. If you enroll for one of those courses, you will automatically be enrolled for the course that is given the second half of that term.
1. The RHEMA Alumni Audit Program is designed to minimize any academic requirements. Therefore there are no required exams or mandatory attendance for those participating in the audit program. (Please check with the instructor to determine if any teaching will be given on specified exam days.)
2. Due to the nature of this program, no credits, certificates, or diplomas will be issued for completing selected courses.
