Disciplinary Action/Your Questions

Disciplinary Action: Though ISDET students do not study on a localized Campus, they are not immune from disciplinary action. Thus students should be careful to follow the rules, regulation, and policy guidelines set forth in this Handbook. They should also abide by the commonly accepted principles of mutual courtesy. Here is some more information:

  1. Electronic communication is fast, cheap, and easy. However, you should never fall into the temptation of sending chain mails to the ISDET  inbox.

  2. Do not forward any kind of emails from others to ISDET  under any circumstance. If you feel that it is vital for ISDET  to have a certain piece of information, then send the original message in a direct email, and not as a forwarded email mail.

  3. Under no circumstance should you send chain mails, multi-level marketing offers, virus scares, emails coming from (purported) people on death bed, etc. to ISDET.

  4. Any student found to send SPAM would have to pay a heavy fine before they can continue their studies with us.

  5. Of course, if you find a good ebook, manuscript, audio, video, electronic Bible, etc. then do send a direct email to your Mentor. Do not simply forward anything.

  6. Be courteous. The volunteers and Faculty in all ISDET schools work overtime to offer quality education worldwide. They get no financial compensation, yet work overtime as a call and mission. Thus they deserve all consideration and courtesy from everyone.

  7. On a rare occasion someone who works with ISDET seminary school may make a mistake. This is not intentional, nor due to carelessness. So be gentle and courteous when you write back to point this mistake.

  8. Do not send unrealistic demands to the office. And do not lose your temper if an unrealistic request is declined or even if it goes unanswered. For example, do not ask the Office for your degree and transcript before you fulfil the complete protocol. (You will be surprised to hear that many Christians students request for admission without filling admission forms, request degrees before they do any assignments, and so on).

  9. Disciplinary action taken by ISDET administrators and faculty may range from a small fine up to permanent disqualification for studying with any ISDET.

Unanswered Questions: If any of your questions remain unanswered, do contact the office for help. Please remember the following:

  1. Go through the school website, FAQ, the student Handbook, and the other Handbooks on the website for the possible answer. We have tried to post answers to all the frequently received questions there. We keep adding information there in the light of questions that we keep receiving.

  2. As many as 80% of the questions that the office receives have already been answered in the documents mentioned above. ISDET expects the students to be very careful, and send only those questions that have not been answered earlier.

  3. All emails received by the office are routed via automatic software to the right person on our ‘networked office’. This is done on the basis of the ‘subject’ of your email. Thus the subject needs to be stated clearly in each email.

  4. Always please indicate the topic as clearly (but as briefly) as possible in the “topic” line of the email. Do not simply send a letter with an earlier topic.

  5. Do not ask the office to call you back. International calls are not cheap, particularly for a free seminary school like ISDET  and therefore we call students only in emergencies.

  6. If you do not receive a reply within 3 days to any email do send a gentle reminder. Please suggest alternate email ID because our emails to you might not be reaching you. This happens in one out of a thousand cases.

  7. Always include sufficient information about yourself and also about your query in every email. Do not send a one-sentence statement/query with the assumption that the recipient would know what you are saying about. It might be a different person each time who handles your email.

  8. Go the the ‘Forum’ and FAQ to see if the question has been answered there before you dash an already-answered question to the office.

    Dear Sir or Madam,

    I have recently sent in an application for the DrApol degree; however, I wish to ask a question I have not seen addressed here:

    I notice in advertisements you claim to offer a ‘thesis-only’, European style, route to the doctorate, which I would prefer to pursue. Could you inform me of the thesis requirements in such a case? (i.e: word count) and also whether anyone is free to apply for such a program?

    Many thanks for your time and may god bless you,

    RevPhD

    Are you affiliated with Trinity Graduate School of Apologetics and Theology?

    Do you have any plans to introduce other church related degrees? For example; sacred music? There is a huge need for a no-tuition series of degrees in sacred music for organists, choristers, worship band members and Directors of Music as currently there are no free courses.
    I am full time Director of Music and church administrator for a beautiful historic church in the UK. Prior to this position I have worked as a lecturer and teacher in schools and a university. I would love a Master’s degree and a Doctorate but it is unfortunately out of my budget to study in the UK.
    I would be very interested in working with you to provide degrees in sacred music.
