International Students

Hola! Bonjour! Habari! Anyoung!

Thank you for considering Eternity Bible College for your education. It is our goal to make a quality Biblical education available to all who would seek it including those that live outside the United States of America.

Is Eternity Right for You?

While our goal is to make in-depth biblical education to everyone, we ask potential international students to consider the following before applying. If you think you’d be a good fit, let us know at the bottom of this page!

Are you seeking Distance (online) Education through Eternity Bible College?

If so, great! All of our international students are Distance Education students. If not, unfortunately we do not have the ability to offer student visas to the United States and therefore, we cannot grant you acceptance to one of our programs unless it is through Distance Education. 

Do you have a regular means of income?

Our tuition prices are never “free” – there are no full scholarships to any student at Eternity. Instead, we offer scaled tuition that based on various economic factors in your country of residence. For more information, scroll down to the tuition section on this page.  

Are you English proficient?

At this time, all our courses are offered in English only. If English is not your first language, try this free, online English proficiency exam. If you score below 90%, you might find that our courses are too difficult.  Occasionally there will be reading assignments you can do in your heart language however most readings, papers, and online discussion forums are conducted entirely in English.

Commonly asked Questions

Is scaled tuition available for American citizens living in another country?2020-07-17T20:48:51+00:00

In some cases, American citizens who live abroad might qualify for scaled tuition. If the majority of your income (50%+) comes from the economy of your country of residence, then yes! Your tuition will not be as discounted as someone whose sole income comes from that country but it will be scaled according to the source of your income. 

If the majority of your income (50%+) still comes from the USA, then unfortunately this is not available to you. Many missionaries in the past have had success fundraising specifically for their continued education. Speak with your donors or sending agency about this. 

Please note, you may be asked to provide proof of the source the source country of your income. 

Are the classes only taught in English?2020-07-17T20:45:47+00:00

Unfortunately at this time all of our courses are only offered in English and students will need a very high level of English proficiency, specifically in written proficiency. Whereas some assignments could be done in your language of preference (e.g. Bible reading) the majority of assignments, reading and discussions will be conducted in English. 

Are there scholarships available for International Students?2020-07-17T20:45:09+00:00

We have designated funds that we are able to use to scale your tuition to something that is accessible for the average worker within your country of residence. Meaning, we do not offer “free” scholarships to any Eternity student. Inquiries for “full scholarship” will be denied. However, we are able to discount your tuition based on the average income and cost of living in your country of residence. We only have limited amounts of funds to do this every year so if you are interested, please inquire below. 

Can I get a Visa to move the USA?2020-07-17T20:44:20+00:00

Unfortunately, Eternity is not able to issue student visas at this time. The good news is that 100% of our programs and courses can be taken 100% online, you never have to come to our campus in Southern California, USA. 

Does Eternity accept international students?2020-07-17T20:43:33+00:00

Currently we do not grant student visas to attend Eternity on‐site. International students have two options: they can either 1) get a visa / residence card for another reason to be here and study as part of that reason or 2) they can apply for our Distance Education program. The Distance Education program was designed in part to allow international students to stay in their home country and study through Eternity without having to relocate to California or Idaho. We believe this is often a better option because it keeps students in their own churches and own context.

Do you accept CLEP tests or AP scores?2018-01-08T19:09:44+00:00

No, we do not accept either CLEP tests or AP scores for college credit.
