What are the requirements to attend The Assembly College?

The Assembly College is a ministry program founded to train uncompromising leaders for vocational ministry. This means that we are careful to select the right individuals for the right reasons. The Assembly College enrolls students 18-25 who show exemplary standards of servant leadership, academic excellence, and spiritual maturity. They are expected to maintain these standards of excellence while attending the program.

Interested students must fill out the application for Southeastern and undergo an interview process with The Assembly College. Students should fill out a FAFSA using the SEU school code. All of these items must be completed in order to be accepted to The Assembly College. Acceptance to SEU does not automatically mean entrance into The Assembly College. Students must pass an entrance interview with The Assembly College as well as be accepted to SEU in order to be accepted into The Assembly College.

What does the weekly schedule look like at The Assembly College?

Students honor regular hours at The Assembly College Monday-Wednesday 9am-3pm for spiritual development, ministry, and SEU academics. Depending on the student's ministry practicum, an additional 15-20 hours of serving per week are added to this schedule for ministry experience. For Wednesday and weekend services, all students are required to attend all services and serve as needed in their area of practicum. Monday and Wednesday from 9am-3pm students will work in a group online academic setting to complete course work for academic classes offered by Southeastern. On Tuesdays, The Assembly College students will attend pastoral staff meetings and team meetings and serve in various practicums in preparation for midweek and weekend ministry.

The "regular" schedule above periodically shifts for The Assembly College based on special events and activities.

Can I hold a job while I attend The Assembly College?

Students are allowed to hold a part-time job while they attend The Assembly College as long as their work schedule does not interfere with academic and ministry expectations. The Assembly College must be the student's primary commitment.

Is The Assembly College accredited?

The Assembly partners with Southeastern University as our educational provider. Southeastern University is accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges to award associate, baccalaureate, masters, and doctorate degrees. For more information regarding Southeastern University’s accreditation, visit seu.edu. When you graduate from the academic program your degree will be conferred by Southeastern University.

I can attend Tulsa Community College for free (or at a reduced cost). Can I enroll in The Assembly College for ministry specific classes and finish my general education at TCC at the same time?

The answer is YES! You will need to enroll part time at TCC (6-9 hours per semester) and part time at The Assembly College/SEU (6-9 hours per semester). Each student has unique challenges and opportunities and we would love to help you reach the goal of a bachelor degree in ministry leadership if God has called you to vocational ministry.

How long will I attend The Assembly College?

The Assembly College is designed for students 18-25. Students can attend The Assembly College for up to four years as they begin and complete their degree within this age range. There are three degree options from SEU, two associate degrees, and one bachelor degree in ministry.

Does The Assembly College offer housing?

At this time, The Assembly College does not offer student housing.

Are there any scholarships available?

We are working very hard to provide a quality experience for our students and will continue to solicit donors who may have a heart to provide funds for scholarships. At present, there is no formal scholarship fund. However, through The Assembly's partnership with SEU, we are able to offer a quality ministry degree at a fraction of the cost of private higher education.

Federal aid is available to those who qualify. Because Southeastern University is a regionally accredited institution, its partnership with The Assembly enables enrolled students to pay for their college experience using federal financial aid. To be eligible for such funding, the student must file a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) and maintain 12 credit hours each semester. In doing so, the student may apply for federal aid in the form of a Pell Grant, Federal Stafford (student) loan or federal parent loan. (SEU school code 001521)
