Tuition and Room & Board Costs

We aim to make college affordable. See our costs for tuition and room & board below.


Invest in a high-quality Christian college education, and you invest in your future! We keep our tuition costs affordable, and that’s on purpose. We want you to be prepared for effective ministry without acquiring a large school debt. After all, we recognize that the primary responsibility for financing a college education rests upon the students and their families. We also realize navigating the world of financial aid is daunting at times.

Besides trying to keep our tuition and room & board costs down, we offer you several institutional scholarship opportunities and remind you that federal grants offer aid on the basis of need and generally do not have to be paid back. (Exceptions may result if you revise credit hour enrollment or withdraw from all classes.) The IBCS Financial Aid Office is committed to helping you understand the financial aid process and find ways to make your education at IBCS more affordable. Contact Financial Aid to find out more.
