WHEN CAN I APPLY?
Students are admitted in either the fall (classes begin in August) or spring (classes begin in January) semesters.

IS THIS AN ACCREDITED PROGRAM?
Yes, this program partners with Bethel University. Bethel University is a fully-accredited institution authorized to award associate, bachelor, and master’s degrees.

WHAT DOES A TYPICAL WEEK LOOK LIKE?
Each site’s schedule varies a bit, but students will be provided a location to complete online courses including access to all Bethel’s online resources, tutoring and library. Some sites may have students attend for one day a week and other sites may have students attend for three days per week. The schedule allows time for a practicum, work and school.

WHO IS TEACHING THE CLASSES?
Bethel University will provide online courses for students, meaning you will be taught by BU professors.

WHAT DEGREE DO I RECEIVE WHEN I FINISH?
There are both two-year associate degrees and four-year bachelor degrees available from Bethel University. Both degrees offer valuable life experience, leadership development, and ministry training from serving at the local church.

How to Apply

Students who want to enroll in a degree program at an Extension Site or Regional Campus, must first apply to that site and be accepted there. Students will then be approved to apply to Bethel University and complete admissions and financial aid requirements.
