FILADELFIA IS NOT A PRIVATE HIGHER EDUCATION INSTITUTION AND DOES NOT CONFER NATIONAL QUALIFICATIONS. MINTS.EDU grants all the qualifications. Above mentioned courses meet the requirements established by many private, independent, and professional associations. Various regionally or nationally accredited Christian Universities, colleges and seminaries throughout the United States, South Africa and Namibia, accept transfer students, credits and degrees from our Institution. Filadelfia Institute (and MINTS.edu) does not promise or find jobs for students. It is the responsibility of the student to ensure that the ministry/institution they are applying at recognises the training. Transferability of credits earned at Filadelfia Institute via MINTS.edu and transferred to another school is at the discretion of the receiving institution’s RPL policy. We do not prepare our students for secular work. We will seek to provide a sound Scriptural standing from which our students may fulfil their divine purpose and calling. Filadelfia does not prepare students for a future in Psychological counselling practice. Please contact the HPCSA in this regard. Filadelfia prepares persons for ministry possibilities. Filadelfia, being a ministry and not a provider of private higher education, programs/courses are not SAQA registered. Filadelfia has, however, lodged an application with the authorities to migrate toward such. Miami International Seminary (www.mints.edu) – a Florida Department of Education (www.fldoe.org/cie/) registered Seminary confers qualifications and accredits Filadelfia. Although courses meet the requirements established by many private, independent, and professional associations, it is the responsibility of the student to ensure that the ministry/institution where they are applying at recognises matters of accreditation and registration. Although we have witnessed some students setting their studies forth at national higher learning institutions, transferability of credits is always at the discretion of the receiving institution. To this end, Filadelfia has an articulation agreement in place with a South African DHET registered instance; please contact us for more details. The honours level program presently leads to a MINTS Honours Transcription with the Seminary’s seal stating that this is the equivalent of an Honours degree in South Africa.
