  • Dec-20-2017 I am accepted here and planning to attend soon

    Since I am going to be a a full-time graduate Online student, the current estimated tuition and fees are $495 per credit hour. I can pay in interest-free monthly installments, financial aid or scholarships to pay the roughly $11k a year this degree will cost me. For this, I will get a comprehensive range of biblical-theological knowledge and skills for ministry leadership, church organization, or mission work. I will also have 24 hour access to the CIU G. Allen Fleece Library.

    It's expensive, but it's on the cheaper side for private schools. Residence life costs less than places like Anderson and has less girls per hall. Classes are almost always intellectually stimulating if you want to learn something. Professors get your fifty bucks a class worth out of your time.

    Tuition is fairly expensive, but there is no place else I'd rather be. It is well worth the cost.

    I love it here, I really do. It is on the expensive side, but if you look at it from a college view, for a private Christian college it is on the more affordable side. Maybe it is just me, but I have come to the conclusion that no matter where you go for college, unless it is a community college, it is going to be expensive.

    The Bible education you are getting is the best one around, so it is worth the money. If you are coming here strictly for you academic major though, it probably isn't worth it, because so few of the professors studied things outside of the Bible for their PhD.
