There is NO cost to open a NCU Branch at your church. You can hold classes in your auditorium and all that is required is a unpaid volunteer classroom monitor as all course work is self explanatory. No instructor is required.  A classroom monitor can be the Pastor, Asst. Pastor, Sunday school teacher or any dedicated adult member of your church who has completed any online degree program through this website. The monitor simply acts as a guide to explain the Course requirements to the students who meet once per week for guidance. Course requirements are provided on this website.

Students can complete their assignments either in writing if they do not own a computer, or by use of a laptop. The class monitor will check and grade all student assignments during the week in preparation for the once weekly review meeting at the church.

Student records should be filed and maintained based on the student’s name and student number in your own NCU filing system. Records would include name address, payment record, grades and course completions.  Degrees will be prepared and shipped from Northwestern Christian University headquarters in Florida, USA.  A formal graduation ceremony can be held twice a year as well. A graduation ceremony fee can be charged to offset your costs.

The dynamic in this non- traditional process is that new students can be enrolling during every week of the year and then meet with other students who have enrolled before and are advancing through the course requirements for their own degree programs, in the weekly review sessions. Students will be studying at different levels and in different degree programs and yet can assist each other as they converse and answer each others questions in the weekly review.

While 60% of U.S. States allow the freedom of Bible schools to offer education without governmental oversight, some States require Bible schools, Colleges, Universities and Seminaries to have regional or national accreditation. Many feel this to be a violation of the constitution and freedom of religion. Northwestern holds a form of theological accreditation, through standards of accountability, and may not be approved by some States to offer degree programs. *You can still, offer certificates for program completion. *(This practice may be unconstitutional) for the time being, it is wise to be diligent in researching your State requirements regarding establishing an educational branch of Northwestern. 

UPDATE: The Texas  Supreme Court may have set a legal precedent by ruling that Bible Colleges, universities and seminaries are protected by the First Amendment to the United States Constitution granting the right not to be hindered by the state in regard to Religious educational programs. This ruling will probably be used as a precedent allowing all USA based bible centered education programs to operate without governmental oversight. 

Supreme Court Ruling:  *October 2007 Church & State | AU Bulletin 

Texas’s top court has struck down a law that allowed government regulation of seminaries. HEB Ministries, the Hispanic Bible Institute and the Southern Bible Institute had sued the state, challenging on First Amendment grounds a law barring religious schools from calling themselves seminaries unless they met specific standards.

In late August in HEB Ministries v. Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board, the Texas Supreme Court ruled against a state law setting out standards that religious post-secondary schools must meet in order to refer to themselves as a seminary or use terms such as “degree,” “associate,” “bachelor,” “master” and “doctor.” The court ruled that the law “impermissibly intrudes upon religious freedom protected by the United States and  Constitutions.”
