Affiliate Schools (Updated)

stockvault-world-grunge-map133086In light of CCBC’s vision “To know God and Equip His Servants”, 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). Affiliates are affiliated schools located throughout the United States and across the globe. Each Affiliate is independently run and is autonomous from CCBC in admissions, finances, etc.

AFFILIATE SCHOOL TRANSFER POLICY (UPDATED):

Through Affiliate Schools, students can earn up to 18 credits towards CCBC’s Associate of Arts in Biblical Studies (A.A.B.S.) or up to 36 credits towards CCBC’s Bachelor of Arts in Biblical Studies (B.A.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 fall semester and those that would like to travel more are encouraged to participate in international missions trips during spring semesters while at the Murrieta campus and during summer breaks.

PLEASE VIEW THE CHART BELOW FOR ALL TRANSFERRING OPTIONS:

Although most of the courses offered at Affiliates are transferable to CCBC, the CCBC Registrar’s Office makes the 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”. If you have any questions about the transferability of an affiliated school’s course, policies, or would like to inquire about their programs please email us at ccbcaffiliates@calvarychapel.com.

NEW TRANSFER POLICY IMPLEMENTATION SCHEDULE (UPDATED):

The following table shows how CCBC is phasing in the new transfer policy. With this timing no students who have currently earned at an affiliate between 18 credits to 54 credits as of the Spring 2018 semester will have an issue graduating under the new policy. If a student calculates how many semesters they have left until they graduate they should be able to determine if they need to return to Murrieta or if they can study at an affiliate for an additional semester.
