This summer we will be returning to our more traditional format of courses with in-person and prerecorded options.  We are excited to return to more in-person learning and have the opportunity for deeper interaction with teachers and other staff.  See the advantages of taking courses in Orlando below.

How much does IBS cost?

  • IBS credit: $300 per course (adjusted upward from previously adverstised due to increased costs)

Graduate Credit

**Graduate credit (in addition to IBS credit) is only available for in-person IBS courses.  In-person courses in Orlando can be taken for graduate credit through one of our five seminary partners. Taking a course for graduate credit does not increase your workload because courses are already taught at a graduate level. The only difference between IBS credit and graduate credit is the cost. NOTE: To be qualified to receive graduate credit you must possess an undergraduate degree.

Tuition Rebate

There is a $300 rebate for any staff who takes 4 courses or if a couple takes 6 or more classes combined from May 15 to July 18, if courses are taken in person in OrlandoThe rebate is not applied to your costs until you have completed the courses. 

Course Attendance

You cannot miss more than 20% of a course and still receive credit.
