BLCS accepts personal checks, money orders, cashier’s checks, Master Card and Visa.  Foreign students must make tuition payable in U.S. dollars drawn from a U.S. bank via an International Money Order.  There is also a 15% surcharge for foreign students to offset additional shipping costs.


COST OF TEXTBOOKS, AUDIO & VIDEO LECTURES ARE NOT INCLUDED IN THE TUITION


To keep our tuition as low as possible, required textbooks, audio and video lectures have not been included in the tuition.  This is the standard practice with institutions of higher learning.  We use standard textbooks that many ministers already have in their libraries.  This also gives the option for the student to purchase them at discount houses such as Christian Book Distributors.  If a student has any problem locating a book, our staff would be more than happy to assist.

Enrollment and Payment Plans


There are several different enrollment and payment options available.


Plan A: One Course at a Time  

[Not available for Doctoral Programs]


This allows students to enter into a program, but only take one course at a time.  If you choose this plan, select Plan A, tell us the program you wish to go into and then the title of the course you would like to take.  With this option, there are no discounts or payment plans.  You must pay for the entire course as each one is ordered.  The student is sent a supply of order forms for the courses in the program he selects.  All workbooks are spiral-bound for the student.


Plan B: Enroll Into Full Program Using the Student Loan Program


This plan allows students to enroll into an entire program and proceed through it with no delays.  The student is set up on convenient monthly payments.  The student will receive his materials in a BLCS Notebook that has five complete courses in each volume.  As the student completes three of the five courses in the volume, BLCS will automatically ship the student the next volume.  


Plan C: Enroll Into Full Program and Pay Full Tuition with Enrollment


Students that enroll with this option may proceed through the program with no delays and will be given a special 20% discount on the tuition.  This is the most economical option for students that do not need to use the Student Loan Program.  The materials are shipped to the student the same way as outlined in Plan B.

Spouse Discount

[Discount only available for students using Plans B & C]


If the spouse enrolls at the same time into a program of lesser or equal tuition, the spouse will automatically receive a 50% discount on the tuition.  If the spouse uses the BLCS Student Loan Program, the monthly payments will be one half of what is shown in this catalog.

BLCS Staff and Study Group Discount


Do you have a good number of your pastoral staff that needs training?  What about members of your congregation wanting to complete a Bible College degree?  Here is a program that can help!

When enrolling five (5) or more students at one time from a ministry, you will receive the following discounts:

1. Using Plan A (One course at a time):  This plan is great for study groups that just want to take one course at a time.  Initial enrollments and subsequent orders must be sent into together.  If five (5) or more are submitted together, a 10% discount is given.

2. Using Plan B (Monthly payment plan for a program):  This plan is great for staff and members that want to complete an entire program together or for staff that wants to support each other but are completing different programs.  If five (5) or more are submitted together, a 20% discount is given.

3. Using Plan C (Full tuition payment with enrollment for a program):  This plan is great for staff in which the ministry wants to provide educational support.  If five (5) or more are submitted together, a 40% discount is given.

All enrollments must be submitted together along with a letter from the ministry requesting the BLCS Staff and Study Group Discount.  Our staff will also work with the local ministry in making suggestions for providing local mentorship and support for the study group.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact the Registrar at 417-859-0881 or biblicallife@centurytel.net.

Refund Policy


Students may change or drop a program at any time during the first three (3) weeks after notification of their acceptance into BLCS.  When a program is dropped or withdrawn from and no substitute taken, the following refund policy applies:

1.  No refund will be made on application or evaluation fees.

2.  Refund of tuition is as follows:

a.  From 1 to 20 days from the date of enrollment - 100% refund.

b.  From 21 days to 30 days from the date of enrollment - 80% refund.

c.  From 31 days to 60 days from the date of enrollment - 60% refund.

d.  From 61 days to 90 days from the date of enrollment - 40% refund.

e.  After 90 days from the date of enrollment - no refund is given.

A student must notify the Registrar’s Office of his intention to withdraw.  The withdrawal date will be the date the notification is received by BLCS, and this date will be used in calculating the amount of tuition that is refundable.



Student Payment Program


BLCS maintains its own student payment program that will allow students to manage the cost of continuing their education by allowing them to make monthly payments.  These loans are made available at 0% interest (God’s Word mandates in Exodus 22:25 that a believer cannot charge another believer any type of interest.)


The BLCS Student Payment Program vs. the Guaranteed Student Loan Program


We have had many prospective students ask us about the difference between the Student Loan Program at BLCS and the Guaranteed Student Loan Program offered through Government (used by regionally accredited schools.)  First of all, the Guaranteed Student Loan is a loan from a national bank that is guaranteed by the Federal Government.  (This in itself could cause a situation in which conservative Christian organizations might be required to compromise their beliefs and convictions to meet Federal regulations.)  In the GSL Program, payments on the loan are deferred until the student graduates.  Because of the additional costs of operating a school that has been approved for Title Four Funding by the U. S. Department of Education, tuition can be as much as ten fold more than that which BLCS charges.  Interest is also charged to the student from the participating bank.  Under this system, the student can be in debt for his education from around $10,000.00 to $40,000.00 when he graduates.  (We have had reports of even higher indebtedness!)  Under the BLCS program, tuition remains affordable; the student can make interest free monthly payments as he receives his education.  The student will graduate debt free!  This will greatly enhance his abilities to minister wherever God sends him without worrying about a large debt still owed on his education.
