Of course you can! FBI electives may be taken independently from or along with our full 3 year program (to earn an Advanced Diploma in Biblical Studies).
Electives do not follow the same schedule as our three year course. As such, they can be scheduled to start at any time, however, there are some guidelines.
You can find full details on how to schedule an elective, along with sample brochures HERE.
The cost of each elective is different and can be found below.
Each elective course varies in length but most can be done in 6 Weeks or less.(4 weeks for classes then 2 weeks to study for the test) The director will set the schedule for each elective based on what works best for their location. Class lengths for each elective can be found below.
A minimum of eight students are required for each elective scheduled. You do not need to know who your eight students will be when you contact us. You will have time to promote your class and enroll students later.
No, Elective enrollment is open to new, current, and former students. In fact, many students that wouldn't normally sign up for the three year course are far more likely to sign up for an elective!
Upon completion of each elective course, a report card will be issued to each student in the course. Credit hours for the elective will only be issued if the test is taken. No credit hours are given for auditing an elective. Elective credit hours can be applied toward an Advanced Diploma in Biblical Studies.
In addition to completing the 3-year Faith Bible Institute course, six elective credit hours are required to earn the Advanced Diploma in Biblical Studies.
