When comparing, check the fees

When you are considering the costs of Bible colleges, be sure to ask about fees. Nearly every college has them, and some institutions make up for lower tuition, room, and board costs by charging more frequent and higher fees. Be sure to know what your total cost will be.

Is Education a Commodity?

When choosing a Bible college, cost is obviously a factor you should carefully consider, but is it the only factor and should it be the primary factor? If you are in a supermarket purchasing items like flour, sugar, rice, or beans, it is wise to choose the least expensive option because there is little or no difference between any of the choices before you. Those are commodities. Bible college—the institution that will help establish your Bible foundation and impact your future—is not a commodity.

At West Coast Baptist College, we work hard to offer a high quality Bible education at an affordable price. That education is provided by full-time instructors who are trained to effectively impart their passion and expertise to you in an engaging and meaningful way. All of that instruction happens alongside of and under the authority of a thriving local church ministry where you will gain valuable ministry experience. We believe that and many other factors will make an exceptional difference in your college years.
