And He Himself gave some to be apostles, some prophets, some evangelists, and some pastors and teachers, for the equipping of the saints for the work of ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ" Ephesians 4:11-12
How much does it cost?
Whether you want to earn a degree, need continuing education courses or wish to dive deeper into the Word of God, we have an affordable solution to fit your lifestyle and goals! There is a one-time student registration fee of $50 and each 3 credit hour course is only $190.
What about accreditation?
The bottom line is that all education is not equal, Government accredited or Non-Government accredited. We are proud that our partner, CLST Global upholds the highest standards and practices of academic integrity and accountability. You can be very proud of your educational accomplishments through our partnership with CLST Global and the Christian Life Educators Network. Please see the Student Handbook for more information about accreditation.
What degrees can I earn?
All certificates, diplomas and degrees (Associate through Doctorate) are earned by taking courses and accumulating completion units. Please see our Student Handbook to see suggested degree programs.
How long does it take to achieve a degree?
It all depends on your schedule! Each course provides 10 hours of lecture, study guide, and exam. You can expect to invest a couple of hours two days a week to complete one course per month. This pace would keep you on track with a traditional education, for example: an Associate degree in two years, a Bachelor in four years, etc. You can, of course, go faster or slower depending on your situation.
