Prison Program
Information

Prison Program Completion Certificate (Non-Credit)

The Prison Education program was developed as a Bible College opportunity for those who are incarcerated. Coursework is completed through a mail-based correspondence method with some policies altered to better fit the prison system and aid the student in completing requirements. Students are required to have an inside sponsor to help facilitate the receiving of course materials from the college and provide the student with access to the course materials in order to complete them in a timely manner. Students are also required to have an outside sponsor to act as a mediator between the student and the college and register students for courses by acting as a financial facilitator. Although these courses do not count for credit toward any programs, a certificate of completion is given to students who finish the courses listed under the Diploma of Biblical Studies program. Students who later wish to enroll in a for-credit certificate, diploma, or degree program may request an evaluation of their prior learning and may receive up to 30 credits toward a for-credit program.

Apply to the Prison Program

The Prison Program application will be completed by the potential student and sent via the mail. The application, three reference forms, and a reduced application fee of $25.00 (currently waived) are required for this process. Students will need to designate their Inside and Outside Sponsors during the application process, both will need to complete a sponsor form that outlines their commitments to the student. The Admissions department is available to answer questions and assist throughout this process.

How can you get involved?

Students: We currently have an entire program designed for incarcerated students. What we need is contact with more students. If you are involved with a ministry that is currently working inside of prison please contact us and we will send you everything you need to help students start their application.
Sponsors: We have many students who desire to take classes but they need outside sponsors. This person helps facilitate course payments and communication with the student.
