During their time here, students will have a chance to take classes across colleges. We at FBU believe in this approach because it provides a strong foundation, with opportunities for in-depth study in their field.
Fewer Physical Classes to Attend
Most studies are conducted online or by email. Therefore, there are no physical classes to attend. You may live anywhere in the world or move at any time without interrupting your studies.
How Credits Are Earned?
Each certificate, degree, and major, at each level, have a required core curriculum. If you are a correspondence student, you will be assigned a mentor who will assist and help develop the course study program you wish to follow. Once this is done, a variety of methods may be used to fulfill the requirements for the desired degree. Each learning activity will be translated into course work, evaluated by your mentor, and listed on your transcript. Some of the methods used to obtain credits include, but are not limited to, the following (this applies to both classroom and correspondence students):
- Transferred courses from other colleges, universities, and institutions.
- Certificates and licenses.
- Credit by examination (LEAP).
- Workshops, seminars, training programs, counseling programs, AA programs
- We allow some credit toward degrees, certificates, credentials, and diplomas based upon your religious life experience and religious training.
- Published papers or books.
- Independent study and research projects.
- Correspondence courses.
Completing a Written or Oral Examination
Students can show the level of knowledge they have acquired in different subject areas through standardized tests and potentially earn credit for class equivalency. There are dozens of different subject areas students can earn credit for and numerous types of tests available to gauge the level of mastery.
