                                                                 XIX. FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS        

1.      Are there any exams that you should take for the IICM Degree Courses?
Yes. However, since this is a Correspondence Course, you can take the test from your own place.  We will send you the question papers and you should send the answers either by email or through mail.  Our Faculty members will evaluate and grade your answer sheets.  You need not go to any city or to Chennai to take the exams.  

2.      Will you send us the correct answers for the objective tests, if our answer is wrong for any question?
No.  We will not send the key for the test.  It is confidential. 

3. For Bible Research Courses, what we should do?
As already noted in the Question Paper, at the top, you should research the Bible yourself and write the answers.  You can also refer to any other book on that subject or Bible Commentaries.  You must write your answers legibly or get them typed.    

4. Will there be contact classes?               
No. All clarifications will be done through correspondence, by mail or email only.   However, for the doctoral candidates, if requests come in, we can make arrangements for students to meet with one of our Faculty members in their area or the students may visit our Head Quarters at their own cost to get any guidance or any clarifications.

5. What is the duration of each course?
You can do it at your own pace.  There is no minimum time limit.  However, there is a maximum time limit to complete all the requirements as indicated below:

 If the time expires for the completion of the degree program, the student should go through the process of reactivation, at which time the students may be required to do some additional academic work or pay some additional fees, if any changes have been made after the date of enrollment of the student.  There will also be a reactivation fee depending upon the degree in which the candidate is enrolled. 

 6. Is there any general instruction that we should follow when we correspond with you?
Be sure to write your student number, correct postal address, phone number, e-mail address etc., so that you will get a prompt reply. We suggest that you send your letters, answer sheets and other assignments by speed post or courier mail, if you would like to receive a reply quickly.   

7. Can you explain a little bit about the Ministry Project that we have to do?
Ministry Project may be done by a D.Min. student, if he so desires, instead of writing a Thesis.  Upon request we will send you necessary instructions to do this project. In special cases we also have a provision to give other assignments to students to meet their particular needs and special interests.

8. What we should do if we are interested in Ordination, Affiliation, serving as a Representative of IICM, Director of an IICM Extension Center, or an Adjunct Faculty of IICM?
If you will indicate to us your particular interest in any one or more of the above services and opportunities that IICM provides, we will give you necessary instructions and information. 

9. Do you offer your courses in Tamil Medium?         
Yes, we do.  Right now we are offering most of our course in Tamil Language and a good number of students are enrolled in them.  As a matter of fact, we are just about ready to offer our course in Telugu and we are also processing requests from many Christian Leaders from all over India to offer our Courses in the major regional languages of India.  You may also let us know if you would like to do it in a particular language. 

10. How many and what courses should we take for various degrees that you offer?
The number and the kind of courses each degree student should take, is listed in the Catalog.  However, we give discretion to students to select certain specific courses from each category if they want to specialize in some areas. 

After we receive the Application, we will send a complete list of all the courses that each student should take.  But at the same time we also provide several choices to pick courses in which they might be interested.  In our latest Catalog and also in our Website we have given a list of titles of courses that each degree student is normally required to take. 

11. Do you have a specific time in a year for Admission?
No.  We admit students throughout the year on any working day.  

12. What is meant by Credit Hours?
One credit hour is considered to be equivalent to 45 hours of lecture in the American System. However, since we are offering Correspondence Courses, the course materials that we provide will be equivalent to what you will get through 45 hours of lecture.  

13. Any other information that we need to know?
Yes.  IICM website has all details about IICM, including the Catalog of IICM.  Further, we send by email a monthly magazine, which will contain a special Article and other information of interest to the students.  If you have an email address and do not receive our free magazine Anointingť by email, please send your email address, requesting us to add your name in our email list. 

After you get a Doctoral Degree from IICM, you may become an Adjunct Faculty of IICM or a Director of Extension Center of IICM in your area, if you so desire, if positions are available. 

All Students of IICM may also serve as a Rep. of IICM even while they are studying and receive a contribution towards their ministry depending upon the number of students they enroll.
