Tuition & Aid


Wondering how you will pay for college? FLBC partners with alumni, congregations, and generous individuals who want you to receive a Bible College education without going into debt to pay for it. We don't accept government funding through FAFSA. Instead, students benefit from a condensed class schedule, part time employment, merit based scholarships, and FLBC sponsored financial aid. It's not free, but more than worth the investment.


A head start for every student


The total approximate cost of tuition, room, board, and fees for each student attending FLBC in 2023-24 is $33,000. Congregations and friends have generously given over $1.4 million to reduce student charges which equates to an approximately $13,000 grant per student.

$13K Grant

This means students never see the full cost on their bill. Students are only responsible for approximately $20,000, which includes tuition, room, board, and fees. Use the net price calculator below to see how additional aid, scholarships, and part time employment can further reduce your student bill.

Need-based Financial Aid

Priority Deadline: April 3, 2023
Final Deadline: July 30, 2023

FLBC provides support for students through internal financial aid instead of asking them to complete FAFSA. Unlike federal and state financial aid, FLBC does not expect parents to sell businesses or farms to send their child to college. We do, however, expect families to make contributions to education according to their means, especially using college savings to help pay for training at FLBC. Financial aid awards in no way detract from merit-based scholarships, which are awarded independently from this application. 

Notice: No information is shared with any government entity—even if some common language is employed. FLBC has no connection to or involvement with FAFSA.

Merit-based Scholarships

Final Deadline: April 3, 2023

FLBC offers scholarships for students who demonstrate achievement in academics and music. 1st year students may also qualify for the 1966-1970 Alumni Legacy Scholarship. 2nd year students can also apply for the half tuition Thorpe Scholarship for Leadership Development.

The application window for FLBC merit-based scholarships is now closed for the 2023-24 academic year. The application for the 2024-25 academic year will open soon. 

Scholarship applicants who submitted an application by April 3, 2023 will receive an award decision by May 1, 2023. Returning students will be notified of their academic award by June 1 after spring semester GPA is finalized.
