Grace Theological Institute

Application forms are only held for 30 days and, if not followed
up with further submissions of forms or tests to the college,
they will be discarded for non-use at that time.

   ATTENTION- these instructions must be followed:
1. DO NOT use nicknames. Use only your legal name on all forms submittede to GTI. Your academic file and all degrees issued will use the name you submit on this form.
2. Use proper capitalization of all information. Do not use all upper-case letters or all lower-case letters.
3. Your degree, when you earn it, will have your name spelled exactly as you have it spelled on your Application form.  Therefore, make sure you follow guidelines "1" and "2" exactly.
4. Do not use titles such as "Mr., Mrs., Pastor, Reverend, Bishop, etc." in the name fields because we file alphabetically.  Those titles are not allowed in your name as it is printed on your degree.  You may use "Jr." if your birth certificate and other legal documents show that as legally part of your name.  Otherwise, do not use it.
5. Do not use hyphenated last names (see "Exception") such as "Smith-Jones" because they cause filing problems. Choose which name you want to use, such as "Smith" or "Jones" and use it consistently in forms and other submissions to the college. We file alphabetically according to your last name.
Exception: If your name is hyphenated on your Birth Certificate, Social Security card, or other legal documentation, then you may hyphenate your name on the Application form. If you do so, you will be filed under the first letter of your hyphenated last name, and your degree, when you earn it, will have your name spelled with the hyphenation.
6. Do not use abbreviations when entering information on the form.

If you do not follow these guidelines then your Application may be rejected. If you do not follow these guidelines you will still receive an autoresponse welcome email telling you to continue; however, you will then receive notification that your application has been rejected and you will have to resubmit it following the guidelines exactly.

To prevent accidental submission of multiple forms, only one form per hour is
allowed from each IP.  Should you need to submit an Amended form with a
change of information, you will need to wait at least one hour to do so.

UNUSED APPLICATIONS: If you do not sign in and begin studying a course
within 30 days, then this Application will be discarded.  We know if you are
studying at least one of the courses because you will submit a Begin Sign In
form and, after meeting the minimum required attendance for the first lesson,
you will have submitted a lesson test.  Receipt of that test, pass or fail, will
verify that you have started your courses.  If we receive no correspondence
from you within 30 days of the date you submitted this Application, then we
will discard this Application because of non-use.

We have found it necessary to include the following second warning to all applicants:
If you do not use proper letter-case on all entries on this form, your Application will be rejected.
You are not allowed to use all upper-case letters, nor are you allowed to use all lower-case
letters on this form.  This includes when you input your name (the most common infraction)
and when inputting information into the various other fields- comments, other schooling, etc.
This is a college; therefore, college-level work is expected of all students at all times.

You were instructed, twice, to NOT use all upper-case or all lower-case letters when filling
out this form. 
By checking the "Yes" box you are verifying that you have followed
these instructions when filling out this form. You are also verifying that you
understand that if you did not follow those instructions your Application
will be rejected.  It is imperative that students follow all instructions
exactly.  The instructions are given to enable students to have
the best chance of receiving an education in the Word
of God.  Failure to follow instructions will negate
that possibility at the worst or, at the least,
make it extremely more difficult.
