Semester Courses

IHOPU Online Semester Courses mirror courses taught on-campus at IHOPU. The Freshman First Semester comprises five credit courses. Four of the courses are taken one at a time, each lasting four weeks, with the fifth course—the practicum—running throughout the semester.

The Freshman First Semester of IHOPU Online is the same for Forerunner School of Ministry (FSM) and Forerunner Music Academy (FMA). Online students wishing to continue with the second semester of FMA must transfer on-campus in either spring or summer. (Please note: due to visa restrictions, international FMA students may only transfer on-campus for the second semester in the spring).

IHOPU Online students may continue with the second semester of FSM online. The Freshman Second Semester comprises six credit courses taken either in spring or summer.

IHOPU Online students may currently complete up to one year online, and must then transfer to the IHOPU on-campus course of study to continue their schooling. We hope to be able to offer a second year of FSM via IHOPU Online in the future.

If you wish to take Semester Courses for credit, please fill out the online application. The IHOPU Online administrative team reviews applications and schedules a brief interview by phone or Skype with each applicant. When accepted, IHOPU Online students are enrolled in courses and make payment before starting classes.

First Semester

All IHOPU Online students take the same first-semester courses, called the Forerunner Curriculum, which provides students with an overview of the core values and theology necessary to sustain a lifestyle of intimacy with Jesus, as we prepare for His return. These courses last for one month. Completion of these courses may act as an exemption to the first semester of study at IHOPU in Kansas City. Our goal is to engage the mind with biblical understanding that will produce transformation in the heart.
