School and Program Aid
Educator Professional Development Program
To encourage the continued professional improvement of Christian school leaders and teachers, BJU offers the Educator Professional Development Program. Employees of Christian schools who have been approved for a graduate education program (MEd in Teaching and Learning or MS in Educational Leadership) are eligible for a 50% discount on tuition for graduate online courses that fulfill degree requirements.
The discount does not apply to required deficiencies. For further information contact the financial aid office.
- Anyone in full-time Christian ministry may pay for 50% of the cost of room, board, and tuition at the time of registration. The balance will be set up on a no-interest loan payable in six equal installments beginning September 1 through February 1 for summer sessions, or beginning March 1 through August 1 for winter sessions.
- Any first-time Ministry Program student who pays for the first session attended will be able to attend another session tuition free if the second course is taken within one year of conclusion of the first course. Room and board and other fees will still apply.
