Enrollment Agreement

Students may be required to submit an enrollment agreement to be admitted to the school, based on student loans, scholarships, or grants. The enrollment agreement is for the entirety of the program, however, students will pay for each semester/term separately. Students may cancel and/or change this enrollment agreement at any time after fulfillment of individual term/semester/class commitments. Students completing one program and entering another must submit a new enrollment agreement, however, their tuition and fees will be limited only to the remaining requirements. Continuing education and training students who are not seeking an academic certificate or degree are not required to submit an enrollment agreement. Enrollment agreements are not required for most students.

Program Continuation

Once a student has been admitted and maintains continuous enrollment, they may complete one level of achievement and continue through higher levels of achievement without having to re-apply. For example, if a student finishes the Certificate program and desires to continue through the Associate of Arts program, followed by the Bachelor of Arts program, they may do so.

Instructional Philosophy

The International College for Christian Studies (ICCS) believes all people should have the opportunity to develop skills and knowledge to increase their ability to perform their jobs, improve their life, and/or develop their relationships with God and other people. Resources permitting, and as long as the standards are maintained, instruction shall be adapted to individual student needs. This principle applies to flexibility in instructional strategies while maintaining high academic standards. 


The official language used at the College is English, and although ICCS will ensure the lack of English language skills will not be a barrier to taking individual classes, non-native English speakers must pass the Test of English as Foreign Language (TOEFL) exam with a score of 550 for paper tests and 78 for internet-based tests to be granted admission to an academic program. Accommodations will not be made to allow for participation in educational and vocational programs in other languages. All classes, seminars, and written material are in English. For general information on taking the TOEFL, please visit https://www.esldirectory.com/english-language-exams/toefl-exam/. ICCS uses the TOEFL iBT® as our standard. For more information, please https://www.ets.org/toefl/test-takers/ibt/about.html. ICCS is a member of the TOEFL Designated Institutions Network. When you are ready to take the exam, our assigned TOEFL iBT® Code: C859; please ensure you use this code so the scores are sent directly to us.
