Frequently Asked Questions
What is your Accreditation?
Accreditation is all about accountability to educational standards and criterion in the context of peer institutions. There are several kinds of accreditation but they can be summarized under two headings: (1) Governmental Accreditation, and (2) Non-Governmental Accreditation. The US Department of Education itself accredits certain agencies, regional, national and professional.
CLST Global is an NGA, a non-governmental accredited educational institution. Although Governmental accreditation would enable us to offer professional degrees and student financial aid, neither of those two benefits serve our mission. Instead, we are associated with such agencies as the Georgia Nonpublic Postsecondary Education Commission (NPEC) and the International Association of Bible Colleges and Seminaries (IABCS). We also maintain professional associations with organizations such as the Association of Christians Schools International, the Academic Council for Educational Accountability, and the Association of Christian Distance Education. The articulation agreement we have with a regionally accredited University shows our course offerings and academic programs to be the very best – in fact, a world leader in Christian higher education programs and resources.
The bottom line is that NOT all education is equal, Government accredited or Non-Government accredited. We are proud that CLST Global upholds the highest standards and practices of academic integrity and accountability. You can be very proud of your educational accomplishments through CLST Global and the Christian Life Educators Network.
How much does it cost?
Whether you want to earn a degree, need continuing education courses or wish to dive deeper into the Word of God, we have an affordable solution to fit your lifestyle and goals! There is a one-time student registration fee of $50 and each 3 credit hour course is only $180. (That is just $60 per credit hour!)
What degrees can I earn?
All certificates, diplomas and degrees (Associate through Doctorate) are earned by taking courses and accumulating completion units. Please see our Student Handbook to see suggested degree programs.
Will my credits transfer?
Existing and potential students often contact CLST Global asking about its accreditation. What they often mean, however, is whether or not CLST Global completion units are transferable. There is a difference with an entity that abides by a set of standards: i.e. accreditation, and transferability of completed course work.
CLST Global students have successfully transferred CLST Global completion units to many schools around the country, either by means of an assessment of prior learning or a specific articulation agreement. Every transfer, however, is at the full discretion of the receiving school. They decide if and how CLST Global completion units will contribute to the goal(s) of their program. It is important to remember that CLST Global completion units represent theological training and ministerial preparation. Not all schools are theologically friendly. A college of business, nursing, or education may not find that theological coursework will complement or transfer into their program. For this reason, it is very important that students begin with the end in mind. However, Christian universities often have a required “Bible core” for all majors. CLST Global completion units may transfer into that “core.” CLST Global is committed to the ongoing development of relationships with the top Christian universities in the world.
How long does it take to achieve a degree?
It all depends on your schedule! Each course provides 10 hours of lecture, study guide, and exam. You can expect to invest a couple of hours two days a week to complete one course per month. This pace would keep you on track with a traditional education, for example: an Associate degree in two years, a Bachelor in four years, etc. You can, of course, go faster or slower depending on your situation.
