NOTE – this will be for the Review Committee to evaluate your transcripts and CV and to determine if you will need proficiency exercises in the field before entering the Program. If you need proficiency exercises, $50 will be applied toward the pre-course work. If not, the $50.00 will be applied toward your tuition.

In the dissertation aspect of the program, students must write a dissertation of 30,000-50,000 words relating to their field of interest. They must postulate what they perceive as a potential problem, relating to the future, and design a way how this problem can be eructated or changed. They may also present a hypothesis relating to an advancement in technology or positive cognitive change and design a methodology as to how this can be achieved. Students MUST provide numerous aspects as to the learning objectives of their work and utilize various educational teaching methods and Blooms Taxonomy. This is not a science fiction course, rather a scientific exercise to provide a sound academic platform for discussion and achievement. Students must also, upon completing the dissertation, submit a 5000-10,000 word paper based on their work for peer-review publication.
Each module of 3 credits in the program is $200 and the total pre-Fellowship is $800. Payments will be made monthly, quarterly or in total. Students are required to complete each course or module in 16-20 weeks. If longer than this, students will be on probation. After 20 weeks, the student fails the course. Students are encouraged to take more than one module per session. Late tuition payments (over 7 days) will be assessed for $10. Applicants to the program should possess a baccalaureate degree from a DETC or a regionally or internationally accredited college. They should also have several years of experience working in the field of interest. Certain exceptions may be made regarding career qualifications.
As noted, all course transfer of credits must be from an accredited or a approved college or university and will undergo evaluation by our Evaluation Review Committee. Applicants are expected to be proficient in the English language skills. A second language English applicant should submit records of TOEFL examination with scores of 550 minimums. Potential students interested in the certificate genealogy program must have a GED or High School certificate to enroll in the Certificate Program (see elsewhere in the genealogy web site).
