Determine needed course materials.
Most Telos courses require you to obtain books or other materials
to use during the semester. You will find a complete, updated list
of required and suggested course materials on the Telos Web site,
www.telos.edu. If you are unable to access the Web site, you may
ask the Telos staff to e-mail or fax a copy of the list to you.
You may already own some of the required materials (Strong's Concordance,
Basic Seminar Textbook and Workbook, the Basic Seminar Follow-Up
Course, and Advanced Seminar Textbook and Workbook), and many items
may be ordered from the Telos office or from IBLP Publications (800-398-1290).
Some items must be ordered from publishers, from online book services,
or from retail bookstores. The course materials list explains which
materials you may purchase or rent from Telos, and which you should
A few courses require you to rent a set of compact discs or DVDs containing
video lectures. Course discs are the property of Telos and are not
for sale. They are available as rentals exclusively to Telos students
for use during the course. Any student who rents a disc set will receive
a rental agreement outlining the conditions of the rental. Rented
material must be returned to Telos no later than four weeks after
the semester’s end. The rental fee is nonrefundable. Telos
will not release the student’s transcript until all rented
materials are returned.
With the exception of video lectures, copyright laws permit the reproduction
of Telos materials for personal educational use. Duplication of
the curriculum for distribution to others is prohibited by law.

You will receive a confirmation of your registration from the Telos
office by e-mail, and your tutor will contact you before the start
