Tuition Cost and Fees

Most of our students attend free, though we ask if you can afford it to make a donation when you can. MBC provides a quality, demanding education equivalent to schools costing thousands per term with extra online fees up to a hundred dollars or more per class. (All costs listed must be paid in U. S. dollars.)

Undergraduate tuition cost per semester hour based on annual income (total household income if under 21) -
    Under $35K and working pastors → $0 Full Scholarship
    $35K to $75K → $25/sem. hr. Half Scholarship (about 5% of other similar online schools)
    Over $75K → $50/sem. hr. (about 10% of other similar online schools)

Graduate tuition cost per semester hour based on annual income (total household income if under 21) -

    Over $75K → $60/sem. hr. (about 10% of other similar online schools)

• Admissions application fee (nonrefundable, based on income as above, and not charged unless accepted)
    Under $35K and working pastors → FREE

*Important Notes:
• Books, computer, software, fees and internet requirements are the student's responsibility. Failure to purchase books and other requirements is no excuse and will impact your grade unless you withdraw, though many courses may provide online E-books for free, some courses, especially graduate courses, will require you to purchase the course textbook(s) and many of our students prefer hardcopy books to E-Books.
• Fees are non-refundable.
• Graduations are only in May and you will not receive your diploma until the day of graduation in an effort to promote graduation attendance. However, you may receive your transcript at any time indicating the degree completion within one month of completing all degree requirements. You may also make one special request for a Letter of Degree Completion from the registrar as well.
• All students must pay the full graduation fee and are highly encouraged to attend the graduation. Those who cannot attend graduation from overseas or having special circumstances will still receive their diplomas and cap and gown by mail. Remember, some overseas locations may take two to three months for the package to be mailed then arrive at your location.
• Those students who are very economically hard pressed to even pay the graduation fee due to hardship may request a diploma only graduation fee similar to the certificate completion fee. You will need to contact the Registrar prior to graduation to get into this special program. Again, you will not get the diploma until one to three months after graduation depending on your location and mail services.
