Life Credit Information
Students who are enrolled in FBC may apply for Life Experience Credit. Life Credit may be earned for verifiable experience in your given area of study. Credit may be earned for such things as ministry work, missions work, youth ministry, prison ministry, teaching positions, etc.Generally speaking you can earn three (3) credit hours for every year of experience.
Any student desiring Life Credit must have a degree evaluation completed. A Degree evaluation examines your current credits from other institutions, other verifiable educational experiences you have had and verifiable experience in your chosen degree field. A degree evaluation will determine exactly how many credits can be transferred in and how many credits, if any, can be earned through life experience and other education opportunities you’ve had. The degree Evaluation fee is $100
FBC will attempt to transfer as many credits for other sources as possible. It is not always possible to transfer everything or to apply credits to your field of study, however we will do our best to accept your previous education and apply it to a Biblical Degree.
