Exam & SLR

  • The course exam is given at the end of each seminar.

  • The exam consists of 50 multiple choice questions.

  • All exams are closed book.

  • There is no time limit when taking the exam.

  • Exam must be completed in one sitting.

  • We encourage all students to take their time in completing an exam.

  • A #2 pencil is required to take the test. It is the responsibility of the student to provide their own pencils. 

  • Online testing is available to students through the GU Student Portal. See 'Global University Student Portal' under the 'Current Student Information' tab.

Once the exam is completed, each student must submit the following 3 pieces in order to receive a grade and credit from Global University:

  1. Front page of the Closed Book Examination booklet with bottom portion completed and signed. This includes Name, Student ID Number (found on Student ID card), Course Code, Course Name, Exam Form, name and date on honor statement, Student's Signature, and Date. Click here for example. Please do not cut this page. Students may keep the remaining pages of the exam. Global University will include missed questions on the Final Grade Information that is emailed to each student's GU email address. 

  2. Green Answer Sheet with requested information entered and bubbled in. This includes Student Name, Course Title, Student ID Number, Course Code, and Exam Form. Click here for example.

  3. Service Learning Requirement (SLR) This includes Name, Student ID Number, and Date. Click here for example.

Service Learning Requirement (SLR)

  • Each student must complete the Service Learning Requirement for every course. The only exception is for the Beginning, Intermediate, and Advanced Ministerial Internship courses.

  • SLR is located in the Appendix of each course manual.

  • Instructions for completing this assignment are located in the appendix as well. Click here to view.      Click here to view instructions in Spanish.

  • Students should fill in all answers that are appropriate to the ministry activity they participated in. Including the question, "Identify related course content by chapter, lesson, and page number." Global University wants to see the student draw a correlation between what they are studying and real world ministry experiences. 

  • Students may attend a North Texas District sponsored event to fulfill the SLR requirement. NTD sponsored events include sectional meetings, regional meetings, District Council, Fall Council, Church Leadership Conference, etc. These events get DSOM students involved in the District and allow them to formulate relationships with other ministers. If a student attends a District event to fulfill the SLR requirement, the student is exempted only from answering the question, "Identify related course content by chapter, lesson, and page number." The student still needs to fill in all remaining sections. Students must put "North Texas DSOM" in the top right corner of the SLR form. This will flag the SLR to be processed correctly. 

  • SLR is not required for the first attempt at a re-take exam.

The DSOM Office will mail completed exams to Global University for grading once a week. Students can expect to receive grades within 10-14 business days.


See 'Final Grade Information' under the 'Current Student Information' tab for instructions on receiving grade.
