Summer IBS Opportunities 

We are making some changes this year to our traditional format for courses in response to feedback we have received from staff and the availability of faculty.  We are going to offer In-person, Prerecorded, and Live Virtual courses this summer in order to better meet the diverse needs and preferences of staff. 

In-person courses at Rollins will take place over a 3-week format, instead of the normal 4, and we will offer a number of 1-week options.  

Staff assigned to full-time IBS will be required to take 3–4 courses. Couples with dependent children should take at least 6 courses between them. Part-time means taking 1–2 classes over the summer. Courses can be taken from one or more venues. Staff are encouraged to take as many courses as possible in person at Rollins, but are not required to take in-person classes unless they cannot take the minimum number of courses otherwise.

Our In-Person Christian Worldview and Ethics course has now been switched to Live Virtual.

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

For staff that complete four courses, or couples (with children) that complete six courses in any mix of formats, there will be a $300 rebate. The 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.
