An Honorary Degree or a degree honoris causa (Latin: "for the sake of the honour”) is an academic degree for which a university (or other degree-awarding institution) has waived the usual requirements, such as matriculation, residence, study, and the passing of examinations. It is typically a Doctorate, bestowed by the Board of Regents of a respected college or university and is a valid designation. Such a degree is normally issued to people who have made a substantial contribution in the lives of people and society and may be awarded to someone who has no prior connection with the institution.
At TTSC, The Honorary Doctorate Degree is conferred upon distinguished Pastors, Chaplains, Evangelists, Ministers, and other Christian Leaders or Public Servants who have made significant contributions in their respective fields or for the extension of God’s Kingdom and have served more than 5 years in public ministry. This time of service must be validated.
