Candler Course Access

Candler Course Access (CCA) is designed to meet the demand of non-degree seeking persons interested in attending Candler courses. To be admitted to the program, CCA participants must complete the application process and receive approval from the registrar’s office and The Candler Foundry. Participation is limited, based on space availability. CCA participants will be active observers in the class, with the opportunity to attend classes, meetings, engage in classroom discussion, and access course materials (including the Canvas site); but they will not have individual access to faculty, nor should they expect to submit any coursework (e.g., papers or tests) for grading or evaluation. The CCA fee is $399 for 3 credit hours and is payable upon approval of application. This cost includes the administrative fee, course fee and continuing education unit (CEU) (if desired). Under no circumstances will course access be granted until the fee is paid.

Application and Admission Process

  1. Determine the courses you are interested in by reviewing the course schedules and descriptions.
  2. Complete the online registration.
  3. If you are accepted, you will be notified via email and invoiced for the fee. The registration fee is due one week prior to the beginning of the course. If the fee is not received by the first class meeting, admission will be canceled. If the class is full or you are not accepted you will not be charged. 


If a student must withdraw at any point during the course, he or she shall submit a letter to the Academic Programs Associate indicating the reason. The Academic Programs Associate will inform the instructor of the student's withdrawal.

The Candler Foundry awards Continuing Education Units (CEU) and CEU credit will be sent via an official letter from that office.

For more information, email Rick Kravako, Academic Programs Associate for Lifelong Learning and United Methodist Studies, or call 404.727.1276.
