Travel Abroad

As a growing, worldwide community of teachers and learners, the Affiliate Schools Ministry has been developed to provide students with a biblically centered course of study comparable to what is offered directly through CCBC (Murrieta, Costa Mesa, Distance Learning, or Teaching Sites). Located throughout the United States and around the globe, Affiliate Schools provide students with the opportunity to spend a portion of their study abroad. Each Affiliate is independently run and is autonomous from CCBC in admissions, finances, etc.

Affiliate School Transfer Policy

Through Affiliate Schools, students can earn up to 18 credits towards CCBC’s Associate of Biblical Studies (A.B.S.) or up to 36 credits towards CCBC’s Bachelor of Biblical Studies (B.B.S.). That equates to one semester during the two-year Associate’s program and two semesters during the four-year Bachelor’s program. CCBC recommends traveling during a student’s second or third semester. Students that would like to travel more are encouraged to participate in international mission trips during spring semesters while at the Murrieta campus and during summer breaks. Jerusalem and Costa Mesa are considered Murrieta extension campuses, but a semester in Jerusalem is still subject to the transfer credit restrictions.

Transfer Options

The majority of courses offered at Affiliate Schools are transferable to CCBC, the CCBC Registrar’s Office makes all final decision as to which courses are accepted. Courses are either approved or denied before each semester begins so that students can be informed before enrolling in a course that is not transferable or “not-for-credit”.
