Tuition & Fees
The purpose of FRBI is not to make profit.
- FRBI does all it can to bring high quality theological education to God’s people at the church level at a low personal cost.
- FRBI believes that each student should pay for their own materials.
- FRBI believes that it is both biblical and appropriate to give modest compensation to those professors and administrators who are dedicating their time to feeding the church (cf. 1 Corinthians 9:3-14; 1 Timothy 5:17-19; Galatians 6:6; 3 John 6-8). FRBI modest tuition helps make this quality program possible.
- Important: FRBI never wants a lack of student participation to be due to financial reasons. Anyone who has difficulty in meeting costs should speak privately to the professor or academic dean to inquire about possible assistance (see Financial Assistance below).

The Division shall not consider any claim that is filed more than two years after the date the student discontinues his/her training at the school.
- FRBI will evaluate previous education and training and when applicable it will be given.
One of the primary goals of FRBI is that of keeping student costs as low as feasible (tuition costs are about 20-30% of many seminaries). We recognize that some students may still have difficulty in meeting these reduced costs. Should a student have need of financial assistance, some degree of scholarship assistance may be possible on an “as available” basis. A degree program student who would like such help should obtain a scholarship application from the Academic Dean.
