The program is now in the process of obtaining ACSI accreditation.

How long has this program been offered at CBU?

When is the best time to start?

New cohorts start each summer. Classes for the Summer 2014 cohort will be June 20th to July 2nd with classes meeting Friday and Saturday, Monday through Friday, and Monday through Wednesday. Space is limited so qualified, prospective students are encouraged to begin the application process immediately.

Are scholarships available?

Applicants working in Christian schools automatically qualify for a total program, 30% tuition scholarship. That is a five thousand dollar savings! It also makes our cost competitive with secular, state university costs, which means you do not have to go there just to save money.
