Have you just heard about DSOM? About to start class and have questions?
Below you will find important information on what to expect as a new student.
WHEN DOES CLASS START?
HOW DO I REGISTER?
We made signing up for DSOM as painless as possible. All you have to do is click here to go to our New Student Registration page. Fill in all the blanks and hit submit!
Time to order your book! You can click here or go to our link for Books. This will show you how to order your books. You will get an email within 3 - 5 days with all the study guides as Microsoft Word documents in your email. You will use your textbook to complete your homework assignment.
HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?
Admission: $25.00 (one time cost)
Class fee: $55.00 (per class)
Housing: $20.00 (per person)
Other costs: textbook and food (these are the responsibility of the student)
HOW ARE GRADES CALCULATED?
DSOM determines course grades using the following method:
Reading the book : 20%
Study Guide: 20%
Class Attendance: 20%
90-100 = A 80-89= B 70-79 = C
Below a 70 is not successfully completing the course
WHEN CAN I START?
Here at DSOM you can jump in at any time. Just remember to allow enough time to register, order the textbook and have time to complete your assignments. First time students are encouraged to allow at least 30 days before class to register. This will allow enough time to receive your book and have time to complete the homework.
HOW TO PREPARE:
Tests are given at 8:20 AM on Saturday. All your test questions will come from your homework.
As you are preparing for class and doing your homework, you are already studying for the test.
What is a normal test like? Most tests are 50 questions (True/False and Multiple Choice).

|Minister's tithes/dues to the District - Our Bylaws call for 100% of the minister's tithes/dues from all sources of ministerial income to be sent in each month to the district office. Regardless of the minister's source of income, he/she must send to the district office for its support a minimum of $350.00 per year. These rules do not apply to the minister's spouse holding credentials who has no separate income. This can be paid online at: http://wnmdag.org/index.php/resources/online-giving. DO NOT submit your District dues to General Council when renewing online. These monies do not come directly to us and may cause you to lapse.|
| General Council Support – As a credentialed minister, your monthly obligation to the General Council is as follows:
Certified Minister - $10.00 per month - $120.00 yearly.
Licensed Minister – $20.00 per month – $240.00 yearly.
Ordained Minister - $25.00 per month - $300.00 yearly.
