Classes begin in September, usually the day after Labor Day, and finish in May. The year is divided into two semesters, the fall semester running from September- December, and the spring semester from January- May. See calendar for specifics.


The total cost for the entire, 9-month program is $3,650,  which includes tuition, printed materials, books, required events and seminars. For Youth Ministry Track students, the cost of attending Bible Quiz Nationals in the Spring is included.

Students may elect to pay the $3,650 tuition in two installments for a minor fee, which would result in two installments of $1,875 each. The payments are due before the first day of class each semester, and there is no extra cost for required conferences or textbooks.

Students taking one class at a time may attend at a cost of $135 per credit (most classes are 3 credits), but must also pay the cost of any textbooks needed, and any TFC events in which they participate.
