Review SUM Bible College & Theological Seminary
If you are looking to go into ministry and can't go away to school I HIGHLY recommend SUM. They are very affordable and you get both the biblical knowledge and practical experience. They also set-up their program so that you can feasibly work FT if you need too. All my classes are Monday/Tuesday, I still work with as a Property Manager and work for my church. My schedule is CRAZY but not impossible. Also, the teachers are great. They love God and really have a heart to prepare us for ministry. Go here if you can! The Pneuma Cohort in Manassas, VA is the best!
I was able to get all the aid I needed, the only thing that I can complain about is the fact that I only qualified for loans. Due to the fact that I am 25 and was working FT prior to going back to school I did not qualify for grants and a lot of scholarships, where as my friends who were working PT qualified. It wasn't like I was making a ton of money! I had enough to cover rent and living expenses.. I was making to much to qualify for help and not enough to have enough savings to pay for school out of pocket. This saddens me. I felt like I was getting the short end of the stick because I had worked 2 jobs so I could afford to live without government assistance.
Academics and professors are solid, however the administration is difficult to contact and several members will completely ignore attempts to contact them regarding transfer of credits, financial aid, etc. While this is a problem in colleges across America, one would expect a Christian college to have a better reputation in this area.
