National Bible College and Seminary
National Bible College and Seminary (NBC&S) is committed to the development and administration of innovative, useful programs which allow our students to continue striving toward excellence in higher education and ministry.

Education no longer offers a "one size fits all" approach. At NBC&S, we recognize that in addition to educational pursuits, adult learners often have commitments to church, family, secular jobs; etc. Therefore, NBC&S is currently developing high quality online education programs which students may access via the Internet.

While all students are still required to complete daily assignments, and actively participate in courses, through this program, online learners may now complete courses without visiting a traditional "classroom".

To aid you in better understanding the Distance Learning approach, we have provided answers to some Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ'S) below...


How do I learn in an online course?

NBC&S' online courses link students with their faculty member and classmates online through a learning management system.  Online courses are asynchronous, which means that students can sign on and participate at times convenient to them.

5. proctored quizzes and examinations

What do I need to be successful?

Success in distance education courses depends on self-discipline and the ability to learn without face-to-face interaction. NBC&S' online education courses will maintain the same rigor and high standards of its classroom courses. Academic progress is established and maintained through regular course participation.
