Our tuition is $200 per credit, so your annual cost (based on 24 credits) is only $4,800. All students receive a Vanguard Scholarship of $100 per credit, reducing your annual tuition to only $2,400. The total cost for the Children's Worship Advanced Diploma is $12,800 + fees and books.
A Children's Worship Degree is only available at a private christain college so compare our tuition to the national average private non-profit four year college tuition of over $30,000. We believe we are the most affordable option for college level worship training.
