Christian Bible Institute & Seminary Honors Life Experience.

The lessons you have learned in life are honored and translated into credits, rather than ignored and wasted. Since you are not forced to re-learn lessons you already know, you are free to go on to discover new truths. Your educational time and expense are decreased while your learning is increased. Your learning is clarified and validated through the use of ongoing practica, making life itself one of your major teachers. CBIS charges $13.33 per credit awarded towards life experience i.e. 30 credits awarded for life experience would total $399.90.
