Applicants who are not willing to cooperate in maintaining the standards of Frontier School of the Bible will be invited to withdraw whenever the general welfare of the school demands it, even though there may not be any major or specific breach of conduct.
Frontier School of the Bible is free from any denominational ties whatsoever. We welcome any and all students who meet the requirements listed above.
Applicant may submit a transcript from an OFFICIAL home-school educational association, GED, or ACT test scores in lieu of a transcript. If the applicant does not have these items, the following is required (if you are unsure whether or not you are a part of an official homeschool educational association, please contact the school to inquire as to whether or not you need to send in the following information):
1. A course description, the number of academic units completed, and the students total GPA.
2. A two-page, double-spaced essay by the student, typed or printed by computer, with the subject, "My Home-School Experience."
This school is authorized under Federal Law to enroll nonimmigrant students.
In addition to the requirements of the application process, the following steps must be taken:
1. Proof of Funds International applicants must submit to Frontier a statement from their bank or a letter from the person intending to pay for their schooling, proving the financial requirement will be met for the enrollment period at FSB. The international student must also prove to the US Consul that sufficient funds are accessible to undertake a program of study, and must show ties to their home country with plans to return when studies are completed.
2. TOEFL (Test of English as a Foreign Language) Non-English speaking applicants will be required to take the TOEFL. You can find more information about this at http://www.toefl.org.
3. I-20 Form When the applicant has been accepted and the Proof of Funds letter is received, an I-20 form will be sent to the student. The I-20 form is required so the student may enter the United States using an F-1 Visa.
4. I-901 Payment Payment of this fee is required before the student meets with the American Consul.
5. Meet with the American Consul - When the student receives the I-20 form, he/she must make an appointment at the American Embassy for an interview with the Consul. The student must take the following paperwork with him/her to the Embassy for inspection:
*Financial documents/Proof of Funds
*Proof of payment of I-901 fee
6. Student Visa When the student is approved, an F-1 Visa will be granted, which will be used to enter the USA. The student is responsible for maintaining legal F-1 status. The F-1 student visa will not allow the student off-campus employment while in the USA; therefore, sufficient funds must be procured in advance (or there must be planned regular financial support) for study in the USA at Frontier School of the Bible.
An applicant that has previously attended FSB and has been gone from FSB for more than one academic year must re-submit the application requirements as well as answer the following questions:
1. When did you previously attend FSB and what were your reasons for leaving?
2. Tell us what has transpired in your life since you last attended FSB. Include information regarding employment, church attendance and activities, spiritual growth and/or struggles, etc.
3. Why do you wish to return to FSB?
NOTE: Re-submission of transcripts is not required. If you attended another school AFTER your time at FSB, those transcripts must be submitted.
Frontier may accept transfer credits from other institutions. We will allow credit for courses that are currently being taught or have been taught in the past at Frontier and for which a grade of C or higher has been earned. Full time FSB students may not take an online course during the school year for a transfer credit, if it is currently offered at FSB.
In order to graduate from Frontier, the student must spend a minimum of one academic year at this school and complete, with passing grades, a minimum of 32 classroom hours.
MARRIED LADIES ACADEMICS
We believe it is critical for the wives of married students to receive some Bible training for ministry preparation. For this reason, we strongly recommend wives to take up to five credit hours of pre-selected classes per semester. Spouses can take up to five credit hours at no charge and we will seek to assist with babysitting.
FRONTIER ONLY COSTS APPROXIMATELY $3,000.00
Why are our costs so low? One of the main goals of Frontier is to see students graduate debt free. None of the staff & faculty at Frontier receive a salary; they're missionaries who raise their own support. Through this process, Frontier is able to offer a much lower price. A breakdown of fees can be found below.
The following list of fees is in effect for the current Academic Year. It is subject to change without notice as may be deemed necessary by the Board of Directors.
Breakdown Of Fees
Tuition (full-time students): $1050.00
Student Fees (subject to change): $475.00
Room & Board (dorm students): $1525.00
First-year Student Room Fees ($200) are non-refundable and if postmarked after July 1 for Fall Semester or December 1 for Spring Semester shall be $250.00. Return students are not required to pay a room fee. The above breakdown of fees does not include book prices as they can vary for each student.
A graduation fee of $100 is applied Senior year.
All payments to FSB may be made in cash, by check or by credit card. If you are paying by credit card, there is a $50.00 transaction fee if charging more than $1000.00. Late registration is $50.00.
Full-time students who commute and do live in off-campus school housing will not be charged room & board, but will be charged a $500 rental damage deposit (due 60 days prior to the beginning of the semester). Please call the school for questions about monthly rental payments.
Although the spouse attending full-time will be required to pay all the before mentioned and pertinent off-campus charges and fees, the other spouse and their children will have the following financial breaks:
1. Spouses of full-time students who do not wish to be full-time students as well may take up to 5 hours of classes (credit or audit) without tuition charge and they may take up to 11 credit hours at a 50% reduction of tuition or audit fees. This means that a part-time spouse of a full-time student can attend Frontier for less than $550. Full-time (12 credit hours or more) spouses pay 1/2 of the tuition costs plus the student fees.
2. Children of full-time students who live at home have the same financial obligations as spouses of full-time students.
Students are required to pay their school bill in full two weeks prior to registration. Financing options may be available for second semester freshmen and upper classmen only.
No transcript or diploma will be issued until all academic, financial, and other obligations to Frontier School of the Bible have been met.
Foreign students must pay with check or money order drawn on a U.S. bank.
Frontier School of the Bible does not provide a 1098-T form for tax purposes.
Our Low Price Is Our Scholarship! The low financial cost to attend FSB is one of the attractive features of the school. Our tuition, room and board are the lowest of most colleges. Therefore, our low price is our scholarship.
