Gordon-Conwell / Flourish Admissions Policy
For Learning Tier 3 (Graduate Credit)

Students taking Flourish courses for personal enrichment or for denominational credit (Learning Tier 1: Audit or Learning Tier 2: Equipping and Certification) do not need to apply to Gordon-Conwell, nor does Flourish need to supply information about these students to the seminary. This admissions policy only applies to those who are taking the Flourish courses for Graduate/ ATS Credit (Learning Tier 3).

The only Flourish courses eligible for transcription credit are the original twelve (12) that have been agreed to by both Flourish and Gordon-Conwell and produced by Gordon-Conwell as well as any subsequent offerings agreed to by both parties.
