Do I need a car to be enrolled?
Although we highly recommend for every student to bring a car, it is not mandatory. Students without a car can arrange rides to school with another Remnant Bible College student. We do ask that students asking for rides would be honorable to their fellow classmates through contribution for fuel or through other honorable means.
Where are classes held?
The majority of your classes will be held at our host church, His Tabernacle Family Church, which is outfitted with classrooms and workspaces. There are some instances in which, at the professor’s discretion, your particular class session will take place in a different setting off the church campus. In fewer cases, a particular class session may need to be held virtually through an online platform.
If there a college management program that is utilized?
Remnant Bible College utilizes POPULI, a bible school based college management progam, analogous in structure and interaction to Angel Learning and Blackboard. Login instructions and training for POPULI will be provided during the admissions process.
Is Remnant an accredited college?
Remnant Bible College is a theologically accredited, educationally accountable institution of higher learning. Our educational programs are designed to help students grow in their faith as they prepare to follow the Lord in the work of the ministry.
For this reason, Remnant has chosen to be accredited through Accrediting Commission International. ACI is an internationally known, non-profit, church educational organization. They handle the accreditation of Christian theological seminaries, universities, and colleges throughout the world, providing supervision for almost 300 schools in 8 countries and in 38 states of the USA.
What is accreditation?
Accreditation in the United States is a voluntary submission to standards of high academic quality, accurate record keeping, and ethical policies and practices. Accreditation is essentially a statement of approval. The best accrediting commissions provide on-site visits to ensure their high standards are met.
The US government does not accredit schools. Instead, the United States Department of Education (USDE) approves associations which in turn actually accredit schools. The regional governmental accreditation associations serve as inspectors and overseers to regulate the nearly $80,000,000,000 congressionally-approved taxpayer investment in higher education known as “Title IV Funding.” The United States Department of Education has said, “It should be noted that some institutions have chosen not to participate in the federal student aid program and therefore do not have to be approved by an accrediting agency recognized by the Department.” In actuality, the vast majority of Bible colleges and seminaries choose not to be governed by the USDE and do not seek regional accreditation.
Why non-governmental accreditation?
Remnant has chosen not to seek governmental school accreditation because we believe we should not allow secular institutions to dictate the qualifications for instructors or the programs for a Spirit-filled ministerial degree. As an independent accrediting agency, ACI helps the religious world obtain accreditation that is not government affiliated. The form of ministry accreditation provided by ACI is recognized by most churches, ministry institutions, and ministry organizations. All ACI member institutions around the world accept credits from other member schools, if the credits apply to their programs.
My church wants to partially sponsor my tuition. Can you match the sponsorship?
We believe that a student’s investment into Remnant Bible College is beneficial not only for the student, but also for their home church. Sponsoring a student through a church scholarship is a wonderful way to invest into the student’s future and what they can bring back to their home church.
If a student’s home church sends them to Remnant Bible College with a monetary scholarship, then Remnant will match the monetary scholarship up to $500 (each academic term).
What are my federal aid options?
With the decision by Remnant Bible College to not be regulated by secular, federal standards, we consequently do not accept FAFSA Financial Aid applications.
In light of this, Remnant Bible College has purposely afforded the lowest tuition rates possible, so that students can focus on ministry training without the burden of expensive financial tuition.
Do you accept personal loans?
Remnant Bible College does accept certified personal loan and student loan payments. If you are planning to pay for a portion or the entirety of your fees with loans, please contact the Remnant Bible College office beforehand to make necessary arrangements.
Does Remnant offer financial assistance?
Yes, Remnant does offer financial assistance by ways of ministry training scholarships and payment plans. All scholarships and payment plans are applied at the time of application.
Is there a local church to attend?
Students are welcome to attend weekend services at His Tabernacle Family Church, the sponsoring church of Remnant Bible College. Weekend service attendance is required for all students, but service attendance requirement can be fulfilled at the student’s home church, if applicable (local students or online campus students).
Is there any on-campus housing?
Unfortunately, there is no on-campus housing for enrolled students. Each student is ultimately responsible for their own residential arrangements, but Remnant Bible College will provide (upon request) a list of other students that are looking for a roommate.
It is highly recommended to secure off-campus housing either through an online forum (e.g. Craigslist, Facebook) or to contact a local real estate agent.
Will I be able to work while I’m in college?
Yes, you can and in fact, many students do. However, please keep in mind that Remnant’s program has both a demanding schedule and challenging workload. Most students obtain part-time jobs working late afternoon or evening shifts.
What type of visa should international students apply for?
Typically, the international student will apply for a B1/B2 visa and state the purpose as “unpaid religious charity work”. Information about the application process for the B1/B2 visa can be found on the website of the U.S. embassy of the country the student is from. An invitation letter from Remnant Bible College will be provided upon request, and the letter needs to be taken to the consulate upon application for the visa.
