    • 100% online and flexible
    • Faith-building through gospel-centered courses and weekly gatherings
    • Tuition discounts of 10%, 25%, or 50% *

    • Job-enhancing certificate(s) earned with each degree
    • A student-centered approach 
    • Access to peer mentors for support and guidance
    Our students balance many responsibilities and sacrifice a lot to earn an education. These three-year degrees will help them graduate faster while fully preparing them to get a better job.
