The Certificate in Biblical Studies requires students to be enrolled in Campbell University Divinity School under the Special Student category. Certificate students will register for and pay for classes in the same manner as any other student, with one major exception. In order to make the certificates more widely accessible, certificate students may take up to two classes for a certificate on an audit basis. Click here for general tuition information. The following details apply:

1. Classes taken for audit are charged at a significantly reduced rate: $100/hour.

2. Audited classes will appear on the transcript with a grade of AU. These classes cannot be
transferred into a master’s degree. (Courses not taken for audit can be transferred to a
master’s degree.)

3. To be counted towards the requirements for a certificate, an audited class must be
accompanied by certification of satisfactory completion of the class from the professor.
