Career Services: The school I attend allows you to prepare yourself for ministry right away.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: Academics and professors are solid, however the administration is difficult to contact and several members will completely ignore attempts to contact them regarding transfer of credits, financial aid, etc. While this is a problem in colleges across America, one would expect a Christian college to have a better reputation in this area.

4 College Junior

Academic Experience: Academically, the school is up to par with reputable Bible colleges

3 College Junior

Campus Resources: I am at a Cohort Location but I hear the campus is excellent.

Academic Flexibility: It is a fast track program with 4 years of school squeezed into 3 years only so they are very flexible with working with students to make sure the heavy workload gets done.

Tuition & Financial Aid: Tuition is very affordable and the financial aid really helps due to the amounts they give out. They also encourage you ahead of time not to take out more than you should.

Student Body: The school is pretty diverse, more intercity than I expected.A lot of the students have part time jobs, come from your average family.

3 College Junior

Tuition & Financial Aid: Compared to other bible schools, this program seems pretty cheap. Any complaints I would have about the finances would probably just be on me because I regret not saving beforehand so I wouldn't even have to worry about financial aid.

Online Courses: All though the thought of having online classes may seem intimidating, most all of the teachers are VERY personal and do whatever they can to make things understandable for the students. Of course there are some difficulties and cons with having online classes but what school doesn't?

Academic Experience: They are getting better!! I wish some of my papers could get graded faster! It would also be nice if all the syllabi were in the same format. Other than that, the teachers are great and have a lot of practical experience in the field they are teaching and a lot of book knowledge. You will LEARN.

Student Body: If you are looking to go into ministry and can't go away to school I HIGHLY recommend SUM. They are very affordable and you get both the biblical knowledge and practical experience. They also set-up their program so that you can feasibly work FT if you need too. All my classes are Monday/Tuesday, I still work with as a Property Manager and work for my church. My schedule is CRAZY but not impossible. Also, the teachers are great. They love God and really have a heart to prepare us for ministry. Go here if you can! The Pneuma Cohort in Manassas, VA is the best!

4 College Sophomore

Tuition & Financial Aid: I was able to get all the aid I needed, the only thing that I can complain about is the fact that I only qualified for loans. Due to the fact that I am 25 and was working FT prior to going back to school I did not qualify for grants and a lot of scholarships, where as my friends who were working PT qualified. It wasn't like I was making a ton of money! I had enough to cover rent and living expenses.. I was making to much to qualify for help and not enough to have enough savings to pay for school out of pocket. This saddens me. I felt like I was getting the short end of the stick because I had worked 2 jobs so I could afford to live without government assistance.

2 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: It's Okay – The school gives you a good education. It is definitely the most convenient or easy even outsie of the actual school work part. It just isn;t an easy school to deal with. And again, it is NOT a cheap school at all. A school like this would be expected to cost much less.

1 College Sophomore

Academic Flexibility: Because it is based out of California there are Cohorts set up throughouy the country. Classes are only available for a FULL schedule on Mondays and you can take one additional online course either Tuesday or Wednesdday.

2 College Sophomore

Tuition & Financial Aid: Slightly Overpriced – The only financial aid available for SUM is via federal aid (FAFSA). Even though my parents are not supporting me in college it required me to input their financial information and therefore recieved NO financial aid. The school is based out of Oakland, CA and everything is done through online classrooms so you figure it would be less expensive. It is actually really expensive for the amount that the school provides. The educating of students is fine, it's just that for what you get, tuition and fees need to be reduced.
