Enrollment in all PTEE academic programs is open to both men and women.

Casual study of any PTEE courses (not for any award) may be permitted without fulfilling all of these requirements but in such cases, the Dean should be consulted. If the student believes he or she can do the work, we encourage them to take our courses

 Transfer of Credit from Other Institutions

Students who come to PTEE from member schools in the Middle East Association for Theological Education (MEATE) are generally always accepted for PTEE studies. Credit for courses completed at the other similar institutions may be transferred upon approval. Students must submit a written request to the Dean, clearly identifying the courses to be considered, accompanied by course descriptions and syllabi.  Applicants must instruct his/her former institution to send a sealed transcript to the PTEE Ministry Center (NB: any fees payable for this are the applicant’s responsibility).  Students will then be notified of approved transfer credits.

If students have already finished an award at another school and desire to study further through PTEE, PTEE will accept their certificate and the student will work towards the next highest award offered by PTEE.
