  • BOOK FEES: Regular book fees apply per course of study unless the student purchases books independently. If SGTS purchases and ships books to the student, the student must pay the shipping cost.
  • FINANCIAL SUPPORT: SGTS does not charge tuition, but all students are expected to support SGTS financially through periodic giving as donations are the only means of paying for operating costs. SGTS is solely supported through gifts and offerings. Tax receipt may be received upon request.
  • COURSE REQUIREMENTS: To give our distance learners a complete academic balance, and to compensate for their lack of classroom attendance, participation, and semester time limits, and the benefits of each, the course syllabus and homework requirements will vary for distance learners.
  • ACADEMIC ADVISOR: An academic advisor will be assigned to distance learners. (Initially this will be the chancellor.) The student will communicate on a regular basis with his or her academic advisor.
