Send all required notes, questions, papers, etc. as separate attachments in Works or Word format. (Wordpad and Wordperfect are not to be used for Tyndale coursework.)

Electronically submitted coursework will be returned along with a grade sheet via email after the course has been graded.


Students are no longer required to turn in a notebook with assignments in hard copy.

Assignment Due Dates

Main Campus and Learning Center students will submit all assignments according to the schedule as outlined in the syllabus. Final assignments are to be submitted no later than the last class period of the semester.
Cloud Campus/Online students will submit all assignments at their own pace, but must maintain interaction with Advising Professor/Instructor throughout the duration of the course.

Writing Guidelines

All research papers and theses are to follow Turabian guidelines as found in Kate L. Turabian’s A Manual for Writers of Term Papers, Theses, and Dissertations 7th Ed. (Chicago: Universityof Chicago Press, 2007). All students are required to purchase a copy of A Manual for Writers to ensure the proper format.

All work is to follow these guidelines:

1. Font & Font Size: Times New Roman, 12 point

2. Double spaced

3. 1-inch margins (File – Page Setup – Margins)

4. Indent paragraphs .5 inch (Format– Paragraph – Indent left)

5. Page numbers – lower center or upper right – beginning with the first page of text, but not on title page; Arabic numbers only (e.g., 1, 2; not Roman numerals); no other header orfooter

6. Title page; then title again on page one (for formal papers)

7. In essay-type papers, ALWAYS write logically, persuasively, focused on the assigned topic; include a succinct introduction that informs the reader concerning the subject of yourpaper, and a succinct conclusion that summarizes your main points and expresses your resulting conclusion.

8. Use footnotes rather than endnotes, except in dissertation/thesis, where section endnotes are also acceptable.

9. All work should be proofread, as errors in spelling, grammar, and syntax will reduce assignment grade.

The Issue of Mature Graduates

Tyndale Seminary attempts to train distant learning students who are spiritually mature and committed to the ministry of Jesus Christ. Though we try to know as much as we can about our students, it isimpossible to know everything. We pray that all of our students are progressively growing in the knowledge and grace of the Lord Jesus Christ.

If students are struggling with deep spiritual problems, it is best that the students defer graduation in order to get their spiritual house in order. However, they may continue their studies, with our prayer, that the Word of God may provide the answers to the problems. Tyndale is also open to offer spiritual help to hurting students.

If a student is found to have major spiritual, doctrinal, moral, or ethical problems, Tyndale holds the right to defer the issuing of a degree until a student is deemed morally and/or ethically sound.

Contact

If you anticipate difficulty in meeting any of these requirements, please contact your Professor (Campus & Learning Center students) or your Advising Professor/Instructor (Cloud Campus/Online students) as soon as possible. A complete review of all Tyndale policies and procedures can be found in the Tyndale Theological Seminary and Biblical Institute Academic Catalog.
