Do you allow foreign Bible schools to become a part of Apostolic University?
We do not allow any Bible school to randomly become a part of Apostolic University, whether in the United States, or in foreign countries. For a school to become a part of Apostolic University, we require training with our school prior and a thorough knowledge of the program. We likewise do not just accept requests to become a part of our school because someone asks. Foreign schools can apply for accreditation, but must undergo the same program and pay the required fee.
Can I study with Apostolic University for free?
If you believe you are eligible for a scholarship, then please apply. All students pay something toward their education, scholarship or not, regardless of where they live in the world. As I am sure you can understand, university programs cost money to print books, mail materials back and forth, and time and instruction. Would you expect to receive education for free in your own native country of origin? If the answer is no, there should be no question about finding a way to cover your tuition with our program. Finding a sponsor, saving resources, or petitioning a church or denomination for funding are all ways you can find to cover the expense of the program costs. Please note: due to high mailing costs, foreign programs cost an additional fee, which is noted on each application form. Be sure to take note of the difference in expense when calculating costs to generate funding support from a sponsor, family member, or church organization.

If you are interested to study in the United States with us in person, it is at your own processing, time, expense, and housing. Apostolic University assumes no responsibility for foreign students who desire to come to the United States.
