Will my Ames Christian credits transfer to another school?
All credit transfers are at the
discretion of the receiving school. Please check with the school to which you wish to transfer before enrolling in an Ames Christian course. We work with many learners and many schools to facilitate transfer agreements,
and will be glad to do so for you if we can.
If you are concerned about credit transfers, you may want to consider an program.
I'm not a Christian. Will I be uncomfortable?
We hope not. We are
a faith-based institution, and are unapologetically Christian in our world view. However, we will never exclude any person or belief system from our programs. We require and expect all learners, faculty and staff
members to treat one another with respect, and to honestly seek and present the truth.
Is Ames Christian affiliated with any denomination?
No. We serve purposefully as a non-denominational institution.
How long will it take to complete my degree?
If they begin with no transfer credits, most learners should expect to take approximately 3 years to complete a Bachelors degree and approximately 18 months to
complete a Masters.
Many learners will find that their transfer credits, test results, and Personal Learning Portfolio credits will shorten the duration of their studies.
Can I accelerate my degree program?
Our independent courses have no minimum time limitations. By taking independent, self-paced courses, Ames Christian learners may accelerate their programs.
Will my Ames Christian Bachelors degree help me get into graduate school?
Much like transfer credit, admission to graduate school is at the discretion of the school to which you apply. Of course, we automatically
grant an Ames Christian Bachelors degree graduate admission to the corresponding Masters program. Other schools will have their own policies, and you should check with them to determine their standards.
