Students who wish to be considered for credit transfer should submit their educational transcripts from such institutions together with the admissions application.
The request for credit transfer is subject to approval.
What are online courses?
Online courses do not require students to attend classes at our physical campus. Learning takes place through our learning management system called TCALearn.
Online courses offer the same academic rigor and practical equipping as our face-to-face programs. Students taking online courses will have to complete weekly learning activities while actively participating in an online community. The online delivery provides greater flexibility for students to manage their schedules and equip themselves while remaining engaged in their work or ministry. Academic credits earned through online programs are readily accepted into other TCA programs of the same school.
Will the school help me to purchase textbooks?
Students are responsible for purchasing their own textbooks. You will need to get your textbooks before the course begins.
Must I purchase the textbooks? Will I be able to borrow them from the library?
Students must purchase all textbooks for their courses. Lessons closely follow the textbook content and readings will be assigned from them. Library copies are kept as course reserve and will not be available for extended loan.
What are the office operating hours?
Mon – Fri 8.30am to 5.30pm Closed on Sat, Sun, public holidays and during college events.
