Classes

Are there any classes that I have to take?

Yes.  Three (3)!

  1. Spring Quarter "Nuts n' Bolts" (the school year before service)
  2. Fall Quarter EDCI (6 units summer intensive...begins the DAY AFTER GRADUATION before summer of service, 8am-5pm)
  3. Spring Quarter RLGN (6 units summer intensive...begins the DAY AFTER GRADUATION before summer of service, 8am-5pm)

Students wishing to participate in the year-long Taskforce or International Missions Program of La Sierra University will be required to attend "Nuts and Bolts," a non-credit course all of Spring Quarter prior to the term of service.  They will also take two six-unit preparatory courses prior to their term of service or, with permission of the Missions Director, satisfactorily complete the *Passport to Missions course offered by the General Conference.

  • The LaSU prepatory courses also provide the added benefit of deferring student loans, if necessary.  See your SFS Missions Counselor for more details.
  • *The Passport to Missions assignment is for prepatory purposes and can not aide in deferring student loans.
