We Are Tuition Free
Because You


We are unlike any other institution of higher learning- free tuition with no obligation other than those of a student. In order to keep tuition free and to support as many students who want a Christian education as possible, we depend on donations to our institution. We ask that you help us to make this dream a reality for aspiring ministers and Christian workers everywhere. Please donate through our GoFundMe/McDowell-Bible-College account which is linked as 'Donate' above.
