Distance Learning has been providing learning opportunities since 1985. It was developed to allow students who are unable to attend the main campus or an affiliate campus, to obtain the same quality of education and degree as our resident students. The school has grown rapidly, attracting students from all over the United States and around the world with students participating in countries like Australia, Canada, England, Ireland, Germany, Italy, Russia, India and South Korea. Distance Learning is a department of Calvary Chapel Bible College delivering undergraduate course curriculum in order to obtain an Associate of Theology or a Bachelor of Biblical Studies. There are two distinct mediums of study: the School of Correspondence Education and the School of Online Education.
The School of Correspondence Education is a paper-based program, which offers classes through the mail. This may be preferable for the student who would like hard copies of course materials or does not have reliable Internet access necessary for the online program. Student may contact their Academic Supervisor at any time throughout the course for instruction on assignments.
The Prison Education program was developed as a Bible college opportunity for those who are incarcerated. This program is similar to the correspondence program; however, some policies have been altered to better fit the prison system and aid the student in completing the requirements. The time frame for completing a class has been extended, classes are in MP3 CD or audiocassette format, and sponsors inside and outside the prison aid the student to ensure that the materials are delivered and questions are sufficiently answered.
The School of Online Education offers courses with increased flexibility to the student who prefers an electronic format. Students access audio and video course lectures and materials anywhere in the world where high-speed Internet is available. Another added benefit of this program is the increased communication with the student. Students receive feedback on assignments regularly allowing them to track their progress throughout the course.
International Student Program (ISP)
In our effort to make an undergraduate Bible college education available to students in developing nations and full-time Christian educators or ministry workers born in developing nations, we have created an International Student Program (ISP). The ISP is limited to online courses and features a reduced tuition. The Distance Learning department will work with ISP students on an individual basis to find the best solution for obtaining necessary course materials for each class.
All students enrolled in courses living outside the continental United States are subject to shipping charges that are higher than the standard rate inside the United States due to location. Please check with the college administrator for the latest shipping fees to your area.
Citizens of the United States, European Union, Canada, Australia, South Korea, and Japan do not qualify for the ISP discount.
