Important Information Regarding Campus Closure

Summer 2019 is the last quarter that degree courses of any type will be offered at the Northwest campus. The Northwest campus will subsequently close on September 20, 2019.

Students are offered the following options for completing their degree programs:

Option 1: Complete a degree program through Fuller Seminary. There are three options within this pathway:

  1. Complete a degree by taking geophysical courses or a combination of geophysical, online, and/or Hybrid+ courses prior to the closure of the Fuller Northwest Campus on September 20, 2019.
  2. Complete residential courses prior to September 20, 2019, then complete remaining requirements by taking a combination of online and/or Hybrid+ courses. (MAT, MAICS, MATM, and MDiv degrees no longer have residential requirements and can be completed fully online).
  3. Relocate either to the Pasadena Campus or Fuller Texas Campus to complete any remaining degree requirements through geophysical coursework at FTS.

Option 2: If a student is not able to complete a degree prior to the campus closing on September 20, 2019, and still desires to take geophysical, face-to-face courses, she or he may complete degree program requirements through geophysical coursework at Seattle Pacific Seminary of Seattle Pacific University.  There are two options within this pathway, and a student's academic advisor can assist with any questions she or he has about how to pursue one of these options:

  1. Students can complete their Fuller Seminary degree as a Visiting Student. The student will remain a Fuller student, but would have elected to complete some or all of his or her remaining certificate or degree program requirements through coursework offered at Seattle Pacific Seminary.
  2. Students may transfer and complete their degrees at Seattle Pacific Seminary. In this case, Seattle Pacific Seminary will make every effort to allow Fuller Seminary credits to transfer into a Seattle Pacific Seminary program.

If a student has questions about either of these options, the student should contact her or his academic advisor.
