Frequently Asked Questions
What are the requirements to attend Dream City College?
Dream City College (ages 18-25) is a ministry program to train up quality and uncompromising leaders for vocational ministry. This means that we are careful to select the right individuals for the right reasons. Dream City College enrolls students who show exemplary standards of servant leadership, academic excellence, and spiritual maturity. They are expected to maintain these standards of excellence while attending the program.
Interested students must fill out the application for Dream City College and undergo an interview process with Dream City staff. Students then apply to SEU through our Phoenix Extension link, and they should fill out a FAFSA using the SEU school code. All of these items must be completed in order to be accepted to Dream City College. Acceptance to SEU does not automatically mean entrance into Dream City College. Students must apply to Dream City College as a ministry training program as well as apply to SEU in order to be accepted.
What is the regular schedule like for a Dream City College student?
Students hold regular hours at the Dream City Church Phoenix campus Monday-Wednesday 9am-5pm for spiritual development, ministry, and SEU academics. Depending on the student's ministry practicum, an additional 11 hours of serving per week are added to this schedule for ministry experience. For weekend services, all students are required to attend one service, and serve one service regardless of their Practicum hours.

Does Dream City College offer graduate degree options?
All degrees are pursued through Southeastern University. At Dream City Church, our partnership with SEU is only affiliated with undergraduate degree options at this time. However, Southeastern University does offer graduate degree options. We encourage anyone who wishes to pursue graduate work to visit seu.edu.
What is offered through the Adult Learning Option?
Adults outside of the 18-25 age range (or students who are otherwise seeking a General Education degree from SEU without a ministry focus) who attend Dream City Church are eligible to pursue an Associate of Ministerial Leadership, Bachelor of Science in Ministerial Leadership, Bachelor of Science in Business & Professional Leadership, or Associate of Arts in General Education at SEU. During the semester, Adult Learners at Dream City Church are invited to attend monthly “All Staff Meeting” at Dream City Church that takes place on the first Tuesday of every month at 9am. Any practical ministry requirements that Adult Learners wish to pursue will be the Adult Learner’s responsibility to manage, separate from Dream City College programming.
Does dream city college offer housing?
At this time, Dream City College does not have student housing. Students who wish to attend Dream City College are ultimately responsible to accommodate for their own housing needs. However, we do ask families in our church community to partner with us as Home Openers as an investment into the lives of our students during their ministry-training season. Host Homes are not guaranteed to students. Students must apply for a Host Home, and if one should come available, it is first come, first serve based on application. Please visit our Host Homes page for more information.
