2 options for submitting the Exam & SLR

Option #1- Online Examination- online exams are made available to all students. (except French) Exam can be found on the student's Global University Student Portal. 

Note: It is highly recommended that students complete the online exam on a desktop or laptop computer and not an iPad or tablet. The final grade screen will automatically save in the downloads folder of the computer. This can serve as backup in the instances when the examination does not properly post to the student's transcript. If an iPad or tablet is used, the student should take a screenshot of the final grade screen.

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. The SLR is also located on the student's GU Student Portal online.

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

  • 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 & real world ministry experiences.

  • Students should be descriptive with answers and details whenever possible. An incomplete SLR will be marked as unsatisfactory by GU graders and the student will have to re-submit the SLR.

  • OPTION - Students may choose to attend a North Texas District sponsored event in order to fulfill the SLR requirement. NTD sponsored events include sectional meetings, regional meetings, District Council, Fall Council, & various ministry conferences, etc. These events encourage DSOM students to be involved in the District & 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 and then send SLR to the DSOM office to be processed. This will flag the SLR to be processed correctly. Students using this option should NOT submit SLR online.

  • SLR is not required for the first attempt at a re-take exam. However, a new SLR is required for a second re-take or in instances where the course is expired beyond the one year mark.
