PTC offers its students a specially curated package of Logos Bible Software. This is available to you if you are an ACT degree student entering first year studies with PTC as your home college, whether you are studying full or part time.*
PTC Logos includes close on 600 titles, including Greek and Hebrew texts and tools, more than 20 key textbooks set for PTC units, popular commentaries, and a significant range of historical and theological resources. Some highlights of the package are below.
You can use the PTC Logos licence at no cost to you for up to three years (subject to licence availability), providing your studies are at PTC, you enrol in at least one unit each semester, and you intend on completing your degree. The package licence remains the property of PTC. Please don’t accept the offer just to trial Logos—try ‘Logos Basic’ instead.
As well as being able to use Logos for free (option 1), you can come to keep your assigned PTC Logos licence at no cost to you when you have completed a three year degree at PTC (BTh, BMin, MDiv; meaning 288 ACT credit points taken at PTC; applicable whether studying full-time or part-time).
What if you don’t complete 288 credit points of study? You can buy out the PTC Logos licence with the price reduced according to the ACT credit points you have completed at PTC. PTC Logos even at full price is cheaper than purchasing the same resources directly with Logos (even with the Academic Discount), and the purchase price is reduced by every 12cps completed.
* Terms and conditions apply. Full details are available to prospective and current students.

Of the almost 600 resources in the PTC Logos package, some highlights are as follows.
What if I want to add my own Logos resources to PTC Logos?
That’s fine. Actually, we use your personal Logos account for the PTC resources, so whatever resources were already yours or that you add remain yours. We can add the PTC package and remove it again if you don’t keep the PTC licence.
I already own Logos.
Can I still use PTC Logos?
Absolutely. PTC Logos resources are added to your own licence. The PTC Logos resources can be removed from your licence at a later stage if you don’t end up keeping PTC Logos.
Can PTC help me purchase more Logos resources?
Absolutely. You can sign up for the 30% Logos Academic Discount for resources that you wish to purchase yourself. Use your PTC student ID card to register at logos.com.
Can PTC help me even more with purchasing more Logos resources?
Absolutely—depending on how well you do in your studies! PTC has an extensive program of prizes for academic attainment and contribution to College life. Prizes are awarded at the March graduation service and can optionally be taken as reimbursement of your Logos purchases, often up to the value of AU$500 per prize.
If you are not sure if Logos is for you, you can try a free version of the software called ‘Logos Basic’. Request PTC Logos only if you are sure you will use it.
Help is available in the program itself, and the Logos website has many help options, including numerous instruction videos.
