I wanted to give you all an update as to what to expect for our Spring 2019 semester. Throughout the 11 years that KBC has been running, we have raised the tuition once back in the Spring of 2017. As we head into our new year, I wanted to update you all that we will be having another tuition raise.
The current cost of tuition for KBC has been $3,900, but starting in January of 2019, our tuition will be raising to $4,400. There are multiple reasons and factors that come into play for this raise, so here are just a few of them:
- The cost of maintenance of the property has raised tremendously since the bible college first began back in 2007. Since 2007, we have only raised the tuition up by $200, even though the college has grown both in student size and property/housing expansion.
- We have had an influx of students and staff! With aiming more towards a discipleship/mentorship school, KBC has welcomed almost twice the amount of staff members from once we first started out. With having these staff members living on the property and volunteering their free time, the cost of running the property has become much higher.
- We have improved the quality of our amenities we offer! Since 2015, we have upgraded our housing from safari tents to cabins. With this, we now offer power in the cabins, more accommodating meal plans for most dietary restrictions and needs, and healthier meals for the remaining staff and students!
There are many more reasons for the tuition raise, so if you have any questions regarding it, please don’t hesitate to contact the administration team! I am also excited to announce an early bird discount for our Spring 2019 semester! If you have a current application and are interested in coming out for our Spring semester, put your bed deposit in by December 1st and be locked in at the previous tuition rate. This means that if you get accepted and pay your $1,000 housing bed deposit, the current amount you would need to pay would be only the $2,900. It is not too late to apply and put in your bed deposit! Click here to get started today!
