One way we try to provide students the flexibility to fit school around family and ministry needs is by making sure there is an easy way to jump in and out of classes. Once you begin a class you have complete it in that term to receive credit. But you can take up to two terms off in a row. You just have to take a class at least 2 terms every year while you are in the program and you must graduate in no more than 10 years. If you need time off for financial reasons, note that you would at minimum need to spend $3240 on school per year.
