In March of 2003 the Lord instructed ATS Chancellor George Kouri to build a leadership training engine and raise-up a new generation of apostles, prophets, evangelists, pastors and teachers for an apostolic reformation of His Church and to serve His Kingdom purpose in the 21st Century. Because of this unique apostolic mandate from the Lord, our degree programs and courses are offered for an affordable tuition to anyone desiring to prepare for fivefold ministry or to serve Christ's Kingdom in the 21st century world.
ATS Courses And Degree Programs Are Offered On a Semester Basis
While our courses are archived online and are available to ATS students as long as a faculty overseer is available to oversee and direct the students coursework, evaluate assignments and interact with students via ATS chat rooms and forums. (See Currently Offered Courses on the left hand margin of the Areas of Study page for courses currently available.)
Please note: Beginning in February of 2011, ATS moved from an open format to a semester format for all of our online courses. This was done to enable our teachers and faculty overseers to more effectively oversee ATS courses and monitor the work of our degree students to assure the integrity of our degrees. ATS degree students may still enjoy the benefit of working online from the comfort of their own home or office. But all degree students will be assigned a faculty adviser.
ATS also offers the flexibility of auditing individual courses, enrolling in an individual course for credit or enrolling in a complete degree program.
Students desiring to gain knowledge of Christ and His Kingdom for personal growth or to
enhance their service for the Lord, but who do not wish to pursue a degree may enroll in individual courses. The regular cost for auditing ATS courses is $150.00 per course. But for a limited time the cost has been reduced to $75.00* per course. The auditing student must first fill out the ATS online admissions form and pay the $25.00* Registration Fee (please note that the regular $50.00 fee has been reduced for a limited time). Click here. Once the auditing student has been admitted he or she may enroll in the course of choice through the ATS Office of Admissions and Enrollment. Upon paying the auditing fees, the student will be given a user name and password (which they may later change) and receive a special course key granting access to the course. (See Currently Offered Courses.)
Students may also enroll in individual courses for course credit without enrolling in a degree program. However, students must complete an enrollment application and pay the one-time $25.00* Registration Fee in order to establish a
student record or transcript (please note that the regular $50.00 registration fee has been reduced for a limited time). Once a student has been contacted by the Office of Admissions he or she may enroll in a desired course and pay the course tuition either by check through mail or by credit card over the telephone.

Financial Stimulus Package
ENROLL NOW FOR SPRING 2012 SEMESTER AND SAVE 50% ON ATS TUITION THROUGHOUT YOUR DEGREE PROGRAM
In a recent planning meeting of the Apostles Theological Seminary Senior Leadership Team a strategic decision was made to continue to offer our special ATS STIMULUS PACKAGE for the Spring Semester of 2012. This decision came out of a strategic discussion about the struggle many ministers and ministerial candidates are having in the today's economy. To encourage fivefold ministers and ministerial candidates to move forward with their ministerial training this package includes:
1) A 50% DISCOUNT ON TUITION COSTS on all courses for all four of our outstanding degrees (Associate's, Bachelor's, Master's, and Doctoral).
The tuition for the Associate's degree has been reduced from $100.00 a credit hour to $50.00, the Bachelor's Degree from $200.00 a credit hour to $100.00, the Master's Degree from $300.00 a credit hour to $150.00, and the Doctoral Degree from $400.00 a credit hour to $200.00.
For students enrolling for the Spring Semester 2012 this discount will apply throughout the entire degree program.
For those who do not want credit towards a degree the cost for auditing our courses is regularly $150.00. But with the present 50% discount, the cost for auditing has been reduced to $75.00 a course.
2) In addition to the 50% discount we are also GRANTING SCHOLARSHIPS to every student accepted into ATS.
These special scholarships range from the 100% Chancellor's Scholarship which covers the full tuition (which will only be granted to deserving students) to 50% or 25% scholarships which will be applied toward the already reduced tuition costs mentioned above.
(The amount of scholarship awarded will depend upon the student's financial situation or need.)
First-time students must apply for scholarships through the Admissions Office and supply appropriate financial information upon request.
3) Finally, in addition to the 50% discount and scholarships, our NO-INTEREST FINANCING program completes the ATS STIMULUS PACKAGE.
Our no-interest financing makes it possible for anyone desiring to earn an Associate's, Bachelor's, Master's, or Doctoral Degree degree in Apostolic & Prophetic Studies to be able to do so for as little as $100.00 a month.
Interest-Free Financing: ATS will carry the tuition costs of a degree program without charging interest as long as a student makes a minimum monthly payment of $100.00 until the degree has been paid in full. The first installment of $200.00 is paid at the time of enrollment (i.e. $100.00 to set up student payment records and $100.00 for the first month's installment).
We expect students to be honorable in their intention to pay. Cash presented to the Registrar in person, personal checks received by the home office in Jacksonville and PayPal on-line are all appropriate means of payment. Bad check charges plus a $10 service fee will be added to balance due.
Prospective students may contact the Office of Admissions at email@example.com or 904-771-5375 regarding questions concerning ATS degree programs, course availability, tuition, scholarships, and interest-free payment programs.
Financial policies are reviewed annually and subject to change by the senior leadership team and faculty of ATS.
Special Financial Incentive For Students Who Pay For Their Entire Degree Program Up Front
50% Discount: As an added incentive to anyone who is able and chooses to pay the full cost of their degree program (whether Bachelor, Master or Doctoral) up front at the beginning of their studies will be given a 50% discount.
Contact the office of the Dean of Admissions at firstname.lastname@example.org. or 904-771-5375 with your questions and to make the necessary arrangements.
