2. Only two attempts per exam to achieve a passing grade. A second attempt requires $30.00. If a 60% passing grade is not achieved on both portion of each exam the student would be required to take and pass the full online class. A passing grade of 60% is required on each exam.

Part Two requires a minimum of 60% to pass.

3. All payments are to be made by credit card in the United States Dollar
All of the above noted exams are Biblically based. Additionally, students while taking the exam can use their bibles. Given that, the applicant is urged caution simply because even if they have the proven college credit hours and or (4) years of ministry related experience, if the individual does not know the Bible they most likely will not pass the examination process. To be clear this is not a life experience degree, the student will have to prove knowledge and comprehension of the Bible through online examination. Further, as stated, the student is allowed only (2) total exam attempts. If after two attempts the student does not pass both parts they would then be required to take and pass the actual online class.
