  1. I just sent my final application for the Doctor of Theology Program but realized that I should have applied for the Bachelors program. How do I go about correcting this mistake? Your response will be much appreciated.

  2. Hi
    Can you please tell me how to get Trinity School of Apologetics to send my transcript directly to another institution as done in America.
    I received Th M from Trinity in 2011
    What is the phone number for Trinity Graduate school. It appears you cannot talk to anyone.
    Thank you for your help
