Get An Affordable Christian College Degree Taking Free Classes

Are you seeking to get your Christian college degree? Has your lack of available financial resources held you back? Are your current student loans preventing you from finishing your degree or going back to study?

The fact is paying for a college degree is financially challenging! Forbes says,

The average for all four-year institutions comes out to $26,120 per year. This brings the total cost of attendance to an astronomical total of $104,480 over four years. Source

What if you could take college-level classes for free? What if those classes could be transferred to CLI’s Leadership Excellence School(CLI). where you would be paying low fees of under $3000 (even less in developing nations) for a college degree you earned?

Affordable College Degree

Are you searching for a way to get your college degree at a fraction of the cost?

Christian Leaders Institute (CLI) has been developing free high-quality college classes since 2006. As of January 2020, Christian Leaders Institute has created over 90 college-level correspondence courses. These college-level correspondence courses can be transferred over to CLI’s Leadership Excellence School (CLI) for you to get low-cost college credentials.

Christian Leaders Institute is the gateway for connecting to CLI’s Leadership Excellence School (CLI).

CLI was founded to be the place where the correspondence college classes from CLI would count for college credit. Most people who take free college classes from Christian Leaders Institute do not need or want college credentials. Most come to Christian Leaders Institute for other reasons like discipleship, continuing education, or ordination. Some of you have expressed an interest in getting college credentials.

Getting Accredited

The problem to solve was how to get the free classes from Christian Leaders Institute to become accredited academic work. Offering free college-level classes for credit is somewhat disruptive in the world of education. Many colleges offer the content of their classes online, but to get credit for a completed class takes enrollment and full tuition payment.

Christian Leaders Institute applied for the United States Department of Education accreditation in 2018 with the Association of Biblical Higher Education. Our application was denied because offering free college-level classes to anyone and everyone who signed up did not conform to all 22 standards of accreditation. Our classes were acceptable, but the model of free classes and credentials for everyone was not.

CLI’s Leadership Excellence School launched on January 1, 2019, to assure that all the standards of accredited education were applied to those who took Christian Leaders Institute classes. These standards included such things as Handbook admission procedures and public graduate statistics. 

In September 2019, CLI applied for accreditation again with the ABHE as an online correspondence college. In November, the application was accepted. See Letter. Christian Leaders Institute classes have a path to college credit.

What does this all mean?

You can get your college degree for a fraction of traditional college degrees. See degree fees
