Seminary Curriculum

Seminary classes study the same book of scripture that is being studied Churchwide in Come, Follow Me—For Individuals and Families. However, classes are taught using seminary curriculum and pacing schedules.

Course materials in many languages are available on the web (HTML) and as PDFs. They can also be found in the Gospel Library app. If PDF files in your language cannot be found, or if you have other questions about ordering materials, contact your immediate supervisor.

Reading Requirements

Reading the complete standard works (Old Testament, New Testament, Book of Mormon, Doctrine and Covenants, and Pearl of Great Price) is one requirement for graduation.

Seminary teachers will use current learning assessments for each course. The Learning Assessments Overview page provides detailed information and training for the assessments.

Makeup Work

Students can complete makeup work to earn attendance for days missed. Teachers should follow up with students who are not meeting the 75-percent-attendance requirement and find ways to help them.

Course Credit and Graduation Requirements

Students earn course credit when they have completed the following:

  1. Attended or participated in 75 percent of the class sessions
  2. Achieved a minimum 75-percent grade on the learning assessment

Students may graduate at the end of four years of seminary when they have completed the necessary requirements. Please see the Seminary Graduation Guide for information about graduation requirements.
