Tuition and Fees
1. Other than the $25.00 registration/admin fee and an $8.00 transcript fee there will be no other tuition or fees. We will operate solely on the free will
offerings of the staff and students. You must each decide in your heart if you want to give, and if so, then how much; but it is not required
because ultimately we trust in God to meet our every need.
1. The only required fees for the college is the $25.00 registration/admin fee, this fee covers the cost to produce all the student class material for the
academic school year; once the student receives his or her binder and begin marking in the binder, should the student then drop out the class the fees
are no longer refundable since the marked material can’t be passed to another student. However, should the student decide to enroll again at a later
date, as long as their previous binder is still intact with all necessary material, the student will not be required to pay the registration/admin fee again.
2. Per the $8.00 transcript fee. This fee only becomes applicable should the student requests a formal copy of their academic transcript; once the transcript
has been produced and the seal of the college affixed thereunto, this fee is no longer refundable.
1. Since the average length of each semester is roughly 20 weeks, any student who miss more than 6 (six) weeks during a semester period will be
disenrolled for nonattendance; however, they will be eligible to re-enroll for the upcoming semester but will not receive credit for the previous
semester, and will be required to repeat that semester to pass the course. Also, as long as the student class binder is still intact they will not be
required to pay the registration/admin fee once they reapply.
2. Furthermore, the College maintains the right to dismiss any student (upon the review of the Board of Governors) for ethical/moral misconduct, to
include, but not limited to: Academic cheating, sexual harassment, stealing, communicating threats, disrupting class by being argumentative with
the instructor, etc. Please note this is an abbreviated statement, the College full “Standards of Ethical Conduct Policy” is available upon request.
Associate of Biblical Studies - Bachelor of Biblical Studies - Master of Biblical Studies

Degree programs of study offered by Living Word Full Gospel Ministry and Bible College have been declared by the appropriate state authority exempt from the requirements for licensure, under provisions of North Carolina General Statutes (G.S.) 116-15(d) for exemption from licensure with respect to religious education. Exemption from licensure is not based upon assessment of program quality under established licensing standards.
Our degree programs are designed for classroom and small group settings. Each Degree Program runs for 38-40 weeks. Self-Paced Material must be complete and all binders turned in no later than 2 weeks prior to graduation to allow time for grading. A Diploma will be presented upon completion of each degree program, and Official Transcripts can be provided upon request. Please note that any Student(s) seeking to transfer degrees or credits should consult with receiving institutions.
Academic Record Symbol and Grade Point Average (GPA)
Grades are averaged on the basis of the equivalencies to determine a student’s grade point average listing using only the following symbols:
Yes = Complete - GPA 4, No = Incomplete - GPA 0
Course Credit Hours are awarded as follows:
Yes = Complete - Graduates and Receives Full Credit Hours.
No = Incomplete – Does not graduate but may still be awarded some Credit Hours.
Note: Each Degree Program is structured around three major components: Two in-class semesters, and the self-paced/practical application portion of
the curriculum. As such, credit hours are as follows:
1. For the Associate and Bachelor Programs each component (block of classes) is worth twenty (20) credit hours for a total of sixty (60) credit hours
for the academic school year; for the Master and Doctorate Programs this basic system is applied so that the two in-class semesters (block of classes)
are worth ten (10) credit hours, with the self-paced/practical application portion of the curriculum carrying sixteen (16) credit hours, for a total of
thirty-six (36) credit hours for the academic year.
2. Should a student fail to successfully complete a component (block of classes) they will still be awarded the appropriate credit hours for the components
they did complete, but cannot graduate and be awarded a Degree until all three (3) components have been successfully completed.
3. For example: If a student successfully completes both in-class semesters but did not successfully complete or finish the self-paced/practical application
portion of the curriculum, the student will be awarded forty (40) credit hours, but will not graduate and be awarded a Degree until they have
successfully completed all required courses of study and have earned the appropriate credit hours for their Degree Program. If a student completes
one semester but does not return for the second semester, they will be awarded twenty (20) credit hours for the semester they completed (ten for
the Master and Doctorate Programs), but cannot graduate until they’ve completed all courses of study; moreover, should a student be disenrolled
for nonattendance they will not receive any credit hours for that semester since our program is designed for in-class participation and discussion.
Other College Transfer and Life Credits
1. We credit classes from other established Christian Bible colleges and classes from secular schools in regards to Christian studies.
2. Special consideration can be given for life credits (ministry experience). Applicants whose gift and talents have been verified by the church, and
who are serving in an office of the Five Fold Ministry but who have not earned a Bachelor’s degree may apply.
3. Furthermore, since our program is designed around the Ministry and Gospel of God’s grace, no student will be placed in a Degree Program higher
than the Bachelor Program regardless of prior Degrees or Credits—earned from other institutions, if the course of study, or the student basic
understanding, does not conform to the Ministry and Gospel of God’s grace. Our program is unique in this regard (see Acts 14:3; Acts 20:24;
Ephesians 2:8-9; Galatians 1:6-7; 2:21 & 5:4-5).
4. Acceptance will be granted or denied upon review by the Board of Governors.
