Here’s what our graduates are saying:

“The purpose of us ‘living Christ’ is to see people set free. The group interaction made what we learned about counseling more valuable and experiential. While we were learning, we experienced freedom for ourselves.”

“The Christian Counseling courses have been by far the most interesting, eye-opening, self-searching, revealing courses I have had the opportunity to take part in. The classes are awesome. I would truly recommend it to anyone.”

“I can’t tell you how much these classes have helped me... I have broken free from so much bondage and am seeing myself equipped for the ministry the Lord has for me!”

    1. Hello Doris,
      All undergraduate tuition is $175 per course. When you study online with us you study at your own pace in the comfort of your home.

  1. I already have a Bachelors and Masters Degrees from LCU. How would this help me as a graduate student and/or could I enroll as a graduate student?

    1. Hello Brett,
      Since you have your Bachelor and Master degree with us, if you would like to earn your Doctor of Ministry degree you would just enroll in 5 courses that you have not taken (at the post graduate level) and then submit your doctoral dissertation proposal and write a 150 page dissertation.

  2. I just got my associate degree with does that qualify me

  3. Hi, I applied to LCU about 4 years ago and was accepted. Now I am interested in the Christian Counseling degree online. Is my acceptance still good after a few years? Thank you.

    1. Hello Tracy,
      Your enrollment is always good, but you will first have to take our Program One Theology courses before you can enroll in our Counseling Program.
