Charis Bible College (CBC) is unaccredited. We are a practical training school. Many attend to answer a call from God and prepare for ministry. Others come just to develop their own personal relationship with the Lord. CBC offers the ideal environment for transformation, as your mind is renewed by the Word of God. For some, this two-year commitment has restored their lives and their faith. For some, it has been the beginning of a new adventure with God. And for others, it has been the discovery of God’s call on their lives. If God is calling you to CBC, be obedient and take the first step to fulfilling your God-given destiny.
Upon the successful completion of the second-year Practical Ministry Training and upon meeting the necessary requirements, the student will receive a Degree in Biblical Studies and be eligible to receive a certificate of license to minister the gospel. After two years the student may apply for ordination.

Since we are an unaccredited college most grants or scholarships will not apply to us. It would be best to check with the grant provider for more information on what type of schools they will sponsor. Please keep in mind that tuition can be paid on a monthly basis.
We do not have a work study program currently in place.
We have two start dates for full-time Bible Training Program students. This is applicable for first-year students only. All second-year students must start at the Fall term. Please keep in mind that as a first-year Bible Training student, if you do start in our Winter term you will be required to complete the program during CBC's Summer term. All summer school classes are presented via DVD recordings.
Please submit your application along with your $100 non-refundable registration fee immediately to assist us in adequately preparing for your arrival. Your tuition (whether paying by month or year) and one time fees are due no later than the 1st day of school.
CBC mission trips are typically between 7-10 days in length and are scheduled during the school year. Locations change from year to year based upon hosts and scheduling restrictions. Previous locations have included: Uganda, Kenya, England, Scotland, Northern Ireland, Germany, Russia, India, Thailand, Mexico, Belize, Costa Rica, Nicaragua, Equador and Argentina. Students will need a valid passport by the start of their second-year.
Our full time course is made up of (3) 10 week trimesters.
Day school hours are from 8:00 a.m.-12:00 p.m., Mon.- Fri.
Night school hours are from 6:30 p.m.-9:30 p.m., Mon.- Fri.
Yes, campus tours are available. You may contact us to schedule an appointment, or just stop on by and a member of CBC staff would be happy to show you around!
Day school is 4 hours per day (8:00am-12:00pm) whereas Night School is 3 hours per day (6:30pm-9:30pm). Night School is slightly less expensive than day school due to its condensed structure; however, the night program is structured so that you will not miss any of the required program teaching. When instructors are out of town, classes are continued via DVD.
The majority of our Night School students work 40 hours per week and attend school at night—some full-time and some part-time.
You can begin Night School at the start of any of the three terms—Fall, Winter or Spring.
You have the option to attend one to five nights per week. The courses are scheduled so that they are taught on individual nights by their instructor. For example, Andrew teaches on Monday nights throughout the year. The courses change with each term, but the instructor stays the same. Part-time students may choose the night(s) they wish to attend each week, per term.
