Tuition & Additional Costs

 

Degree Search

Prospective students wishing to determine the total credit hours which will be required for their desired degree prior to enrolling may request a Degree Search.  The cost for this service is $25.00.  FBCS will evaluate transcripts, certificates, military service records and life/ministry experience and determine a degree plan for the prospective student.  If enrollment follows the Degree Search, the $25.00 cost will be credited toward the student’s tuition

Tuition and Fee Schedule – Resident Students

Students should contact their resident branch or training center for current tuition rates and fees.

Progressive Senior Discount

FBCS offers a unique senior discount policy.  The amount of your discount increases with age.  You may calculate your own discount.  At sixty-five (65) years of age you will be awarded 10% tuition discount.  For every year thereafter you may deduct another 1%. Example: If you are 70 years of age you would receive 10% + 5% = 15% discount.  This discount does not apply to textbooks, but tuition only.

ADDITIONAL COSTS

Text books

Students are required to purchase textbooks from Freedom Bible College & Seminary.  We make every effort to keep the cost of our textbooks as low as possible.  Currently textbooks for our curriculum range in price from $23 to $95 which is much lower than the cost of textbooks at traditional colleges. In addition, the cost includes shipping and testing materials.  A 10% textbook discount is offered when purchasing 6 or more textbooks at one time.  We do not always have them in stock, but sometimes used books can be purchased for a discounted rate.

Textbooks – International Students

The cost of shipping to students in foreign countries will be calculated and added to the cost of textbooks.

Late Fees

Tuition payments are due on the 1st or 15th day of each month unless other arrangements have been made.  Payments received three (3) days after your agreed upon due date will be charged a late fee of $20.00.
