We want to help you get the education you need in a simple way. By taking our online classes, you’re not bound to the classroom. Our programs are biblical, flexible, and engaging.

Transfer Credit

Maranatha signed the DoD Voluntary Education Partnership Memorandum of Understanding. This means we’ll treat you fairly and accept credits earned with your military training. Order your Joint Service Transcript (Army/Navy/Marines/Coast Guard) or CCAF transcript (Air Force) today and see how close you already are!

  • Grants and Loans. Our regional accreditation affords you the opportunity to take advantage of grant and loan programs. Grants—federal and state—are given based on financial need and do not need to be paid back. Loans are monies distributed by federal, state, and private lenders. These monies must be paid back as determined by the lender. See Loan Repayment Programs or for more information.
  • Senior Discount. Students ages 55+ are eligible for a 50% tuition discount.
  • Apply for Aid. Students must complete a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) to become eligible for financial aid.

Students are responsible for ordering and paying for their own textbooks/materials. However, the cost varies based on which vendor you choose, whether you purchase new or used books, whether you keep or re-sell them, etc.

  • The comprehensive fee is non-refundable.
