  • + amount for off-campus (with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus with family
  • + amount for off-campus (not with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus not with family)

What Students Are Saying

4.16 Average Rating
Baptist Bible College is small, but family oriented and the people (students, faculty and staff) are very caring and friendly. The student-teacher ratio is 10 to 1, and the average class size is twenty students. This makes it possible for teachers to develop personal relationships with their students, which I greatly appreciate.

BBC is a good school with a great academic aspects and fantastic faculty who really care about you. The class sizes are extremely small allowing 1-on-1 learning opportunities.
