Associate of Biblical Studies (20 classes)

This is the entry level for beginning students. All 20 classes are required, unless the student has transferable credits in theology, humanities, or equivalent ministry experience.

Transfer credits may provide up to 50% credit toward the ABS program, but there is no change in fees. If a student has more credit than 50% of the ABS program, he or she may qualify for as Associate/Bachelor concurrent program where two degrees are awarded when the higher degree is completed.

You may begin your pursuit of an ABS degree at any time, but the classes are only offered in the quarters below. All dates are approximate and are subject to change. Class work is due two weeks after the quarter ends. If you are a new student beginning in the middle of a quarter, you will be given an extra quarter to complete your work.
