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.

McDowell Bible College is accepting admissions applications now for the Fully On-Line seven Bachelor of Arts and Associate of Arts degree programs and five Certificate programs. We are a TUITION FREE COLLEGE funded by Christian donations, therefore space is limited. It is possible to complete requirements for a Certificate within six to eight months; or an Associate Degree within sixteen months; an Bachelor Degree within 3 to 4 years. (depending on ability to maintain full load, grades and course schedule availability). See Academic Calendar for more deadlines.

Our school is dedicated to our Lord Jesus Christ and to His service. As the name implies, we are a bible-oriented college and the curriculum is designed for students who are members of a Christian church. Our school was founded to help those who fall into one or more of the following categories:

      • College students who wish to complete a degree related to service in churches or religious organizations. We currently offer the Associate of Arts in the following concentrations: Ministry, Worship Ministry, Biblical Studies, Church Administration and Church Media and Computer Sciences.

      • Current or future church employees who wish certification in their fields without taking the time to complete a full degree. We offer certificates in Ministry, Worship Ministry, Biblical Studies, Church Administration and Church Media and Computer Sciences which require taking only six courses to complete the certificate, while still earning college credit towards a future degree.

      • Students who cannot afford the high cost of college or do not want to encumber themselves with a large amount of educational loan debt. Our tuition is free!

      • Students who want a want a quality education. This is not a degree mill! - We offer challenging degree and certificate programs that will properly prepare you for service in churches and religious non-profit organizations. If you are looking for an easy ride, we are not your school!

Interactive Online Classroom - We have a proprietary online classroom presentation system that is as user friendly as it is informing. Other schools have to pass on hundreds of thousands of dollars in expense purchasing an external on-line classroom system such Blackboard, but we have our own in-house software and IT staff for immediate response to needs. Our online classroom experience includes folders or rooms where the following classroom activities take place.

      • Classroom Office - The professor will post public notices for the class here, so check regularly to get the latest update. You will also find a link to contact your instructor for a private inquiry. Instructors are encouraged to monitor this system daily and answer your questions.

      • Class Document Folder - The course syllabus and other course documents will be posted here.

      • Class Assignments - In this room, you will find links to the week's lesson requirements, class lecture, any required documents for study for that week, and links to quizes, exams or other class assignments that need to be turned in for that week. Our instructors are required to present a significant visual lecture each week where there is not a major examination or assignment. We do not abide a 5 or 10 minute audio recording, or in some cases no lecture at all, with the professor asking you to just get it out of the book. We believe that lectures with visual aids are an important presentation of the material needed for better understanding.

      • Gradebook Postings - As your grades become available for quizes, exams or assignments, they will be posted here in privacy.

      • Class Forum - There will be a general public forum for the class where students and faculty can interact. Additional tailored forums will be added as classroom assignments for grade.

      • MBC Mail - There will be a link to your messages and our internal school messaging system that will allow you to interact privately with other students and with the faculty.

McDowell Bible College is set up on the standard tri-semester system with three full 15-week terms each year, Spring (January-April), Summer (May-August) and Fall (September-December). We hope you will join us in the coming year as we begin this new program of quality on-line education that is demanding, but fair and easy to complete with enough effort. We will provide you with the tools you need for your area of study that is supported by in-house programming sometimes better than state of the art. Our tuition is free so that is why a quality education with McDowell Bible College is not only a good deal, a comparison does not exist. Become a student at MBC and you will not regret it.
