I cannot log on to my account to view my transcript.

We have recently switched to a new system which will require you to create a new account. At this time, new account creation does not include the ability to review your transcript. We are working to have a new student portal available in the coming months. If you have any questions about your transcript or grades, please send us a request by e-mail anytime. Thank you!

What is the difference between credit, audit and certificate courses?

Courses taken for audit are the least expensive. You may take as many of these courses as you want, and they do not have any coursework. Courses should be audited if your primary goal is ongoing education.

Courses taken toward the Certificate Degree carry some light coursework with them, and the completion of eight courses results in the awarding of a Certificate Degree in Messianic Jewish Studies.

Courses should be taken for credit if your goal is ordination with the IAMCS, however, prerequisite to ordination is acceptance in the ordination program. The IAMCS Yeshiva does not oversee or administrate the IAMCS ordination program. For more information about ordination, please contact the IAMCS office.

What courses do you offer for distance learning?
