Who was the Greenleaf University Ph.D. program designed for?

The GU program was designed with the mid-career professional in mind. We realize that those on the professional "fast track" rarely can take two to five years away from their careers in order to return to the traditional campus. We also realize that the traditional academic program does not allow the learner to apply the concepts being taught while completing the studies. GU solves both of these problems.
 
Can I transfer in courses or get credit for experience?
 
Many students who enter a graduate degree program have some formal graduate education and advanced work experiences for which credit can be granted towards the particular degree required. Our Office for Academic Affairs evaluates these credits and determines whether and which credits can be applied to the various courses we require for our program.
 
How can I benefit from the program or individual courses taken?

Most potential enrollees are interested in leadership advancement within their own organizations. Our program is designed around the learner and the learner's professional environment. Every course that we offer is structured for the student to apply professional experience and expand the student's ability to apply what has been learned during the course. Although the topics are set, and the classical works are identified, the application of what you have learned is based entirely on your work environment. This program was designed for mid-career professionals desiring to develop a competitive edge in both academics and in
leadership.

Aside from these periods, your application will be processed and you will be put to work as soon as time allows.

$150 per credit hour for degree seeking students, $175 per credit hour for non-degree seeking students.
