study via Internet-based courses, short-term seminars, conferences,
and internships. Students complete core courses from home. Each
week students submit assignments to their professors (called tutors)
via e-mail. Tutors evaluate and return the assignments, corresponding
with their students throughout the semester.
courses are available at various locations. Students may also develop
and participate in internships in fields of their choosing. Internships
are coordinated through the Telos office but may be completed at
tutors, parents, and students
- The Telos Institute International develops curriculum, organizes
on-site courses, supervises experience, and grants credit and
- Tutors guide and evaluate the students, provide information
to parents, and serve as liaisons between the family and Telos.
- Parents actively oversee the instruction of their sons and
daughters. Telos depends upon parents to encourage the students
in wise educational choices and to supervise their progress.
- The role of students is outlined in Galatians 4:2: “But
[he] is under tutors and governors until the time appointed of
the father.” In order for students to be successful in Telos,
they must remain under the direction of tutors and complete the
work required of them.
The Telos Institute International has submitted each of its degree
programs to the Commission on Proprietary Education of the State
of Indiana. The Commission has determined that degree programs currently
offered by Telos are nonvocational and therefore not subject to
regulation by the Commission or any other state agency. Though this
determination does not give or imply official authorization or recognition
of Telos by the Commission, it does ensure that Telos is operating
in accordance with the laws of the State of Indiana.
Due to unique curriculum content, Telos provides no guarantee that
credits will seamlessly transfer to other institutions. However,
a number of accredited colleges and universities have already accepted
does accept transfer credit for selected classes.
