What equipment do I need?
A computer, phone or tablet with internet access and a valid email address will be needed to take tests online and view online classes. A good rule of thumb is, if your device can watch a youtube video without interruption, it will work fine.
Will it be at my church location?

Are there requirements to become a student?
There are no requirements to attend a class. However, if you decide to earn the college credit there are several requirements, a pastoral recommendation and a code of conduct to live by.
