B. Special Students
1. Priests — Any priest who, with a letter of introduction from his bishop or religious superior, requests registration in one or more courses for credit in service to his own continuing education may enroll as a Special Student with the approval of the Dean of Faculty.
2. Seminarians — Any seminarian for whom his bishop or religious superior requests registration, not in any program leading to a degree, but in courses for credit required by his bishop or religious superior in order that he may qualify more readily for ordination to priesthood may enroll as a Special Student with the approval of the Dean of Faculty.
3. Lay Students — Lay students may enroll as non-degree credit students in the Theological Institute degree programs. These credits may be transferred to other institutions by requesting an official transcript. Students intent on matriculating into a degree program at the Theological Institute should note that only a maximum of twelve credits earned as a non-degree student will be accepted toward their degree program.
