There is a low student-teacher ratio at Payne Theological Seminary. Each student is assigned a faculty advisor who assists the student with decisions about course selections and course loads as the student matriculates.
The seminary believes that spiritual formation involves community. There is a code of conduct that emphasizes respect for all persons and their personal property. It is expected that all members of the seminary community observe this code.
All members of the seminary community are encouraged to participate in chapel programs. Distinguished preachers and scholars from outside the seminary community are invited to participate in these programs. The chapel is open on a regular basis for prayer.
