  • Content taught within the framework of Calvary's distinctive, exegetically-based ministry perspective
  • Fresh insights that will enrich your personal walk with Christ and refine your philosophy of ministry
  • A virtual classroom experience through real time video interaction
  • Online delivery of the video from each week's residential session
  • The ability to access class content anywhere you can access a web browser
  • The convenience of submitting all work electronically (no more printers!)
  • Access to Calvary's library resources, including its online databases
  • An e-mail-integrated classroom

Flexible video format

Students in Calvary's online classes can participate in Calvary's residential classes through live video interaction (provided by Adobe Connect).  In addition, students not able to participate in real time can receive the weekly lectures made available in a video podcast format viewable on computers or portable video devices.

Quality educational experience

Students interact with their professors and colleagues and enjoy borrowing privileges at the seminary's physical library and access to its online subscription databases (including full-text access to over 1,200 current periodicals and journals via EBSCO Host). Online classes require the same level of rigor and depth required in the residential classroom.

A robust learning platform

sakai Courses are hosted in the Sakai collaborate learning environment, a learning management system developed and used by many of the world's largest universities, including schools such as Michigan State University, University of Cambridge, Indiana University, Rutgers, Virginia Tech, and many others.

Affordable tuition

The cost for an online class is currently $435 per credit hour and will be $295 per credit hour beginning Fall 2013, plus a $150 online fee per course. For example, the cost for a two credit-hour class is $590 (Fall 2013 - tuition) + $150 (online fee) for a total of $740. Scholarships and grants are available to students who take four or more credit hours per semester.
