We Are Tuition Free
Because You

Donate

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.

Minors for the BA degrees are 18 semester hours chosen from non-related associate degree requirements. Here are two examples: the Ministry degree can choose anything except the AA in Ministry degree and the Religion degree can choose anything except the AA in Biblical Studies. You may not choose any courses already required in your major, for example, a Ministry major and Biblical Studies minor both have the following courses, so other courses or biblical course electives would be chosen for the minor.
