|Tuition & Fees|
|We have the philosophy that a quality, spiritual education that trains an individual for service to the Lord Jesus Christ should not leave that individual with an oppressive financial debt. This is another reason why we have not sought the very costly regional accreditation that leads to qualification for government-guaranteed student loans and other government programs. Institutions using such loans generally charge the maximum tuition allowable, leaving the student with a sizeable debt at the completion of their education. For those called to the ministry, it can be very difficult to obey God's calling with this type of debt lingering over their finances. Therefore,we elected a less-costly, independent accreditation. Our approach is to provide the most affordable, quality, spiritual education that we can as a ministry to the Lord and to His servants. |
Our policy is to provide an in-house, interest-free "pay-as-you-go" program rather than requiring the student to pay the full tuition at the beginning of each semester. Flexibility of schedule is another great advantage of our approach. Students can finish their programs of study or achieve their educational goals over a period of time convenient to them. Their own personal preferences, work schedules, and their own finances determine the speed at which they progress. Students must pre-pay each course before attending classes. If a student cannot pre-pay the course, they are not disqualified from continuing their education, though they might not complete the number of courses required to graduate in the next graduation exercise. There are no provisions for partial payments.

|Ministry Life Experience (MLE) Credits |
Ministry Life Experience credit recognizes academic study for the preaching and teaching of the Word of God in formal classes or services sanctioned by the church, such as adult services, children's church, and youth services.
To qualify for MLE credit, the majority of the material presented should result from the instructor's own study of the Word of God and not rely upon use of pre-printed curriculum. MLE credit will also be awarded for evangelistic speaking engagements, as well as teaching or preaching over radio and television. Conducting Sunday school classes, home Bible studies, or cell groups do not count toward MLE credit.
