Student and Exchange Visitors Program (SEVP)

Thank you for your interest in Florida Bible College in Orlando, Florida. We are excited to know that people around the world are hearing about the school and expressing interest in attending.

If you had hoped to come to the United States to study at our school, we have not yet been authorized by the Student and Exchange Visitors Program (SEVP) here in the United States to begin accepting international students. The process is lengthy and complicated. However, we are confident in time we will be able to do so.

However you can remain in your country and take online classes through Florida Bible College for credit. We are legally able to grant certificates and degrees to international students who complete their work in their own country. Keep in mind we are "unaccredited," so classes taken through Florida Bible College may not transfer to other schools. Usually other schools take such classes on a case-by-case basis to determine if they can transfer credits. 

Currently most of our online classes are intended to be viewed "live-streamed." This means we prefer students participate with others by logging on at the time of day the class is scheduled. This enables you to interact with the prof and other students via computer. Please consider the time difference there might be between your country and Eastern Standard Time in Florida as you determine which classes you can take this way.

However, if the class time does not work for you, we have another option. You may take the class by watching the video of that live-streamed class. A link will be made available to students one week after the class meets. Of course, you would still need to complete any assignments as well unless you just want to "audit" the class. Auditing means you take the class but not If you want to pursue a certificate in your own country, in addition to your application and the application fee, we will need the following:

  • Transcripts from schools you have attended
  • A pastoral recommendation (I have attached the form needed)
  • A written testimony of how you came to know Christ and why you want to get your education from FBC (only needs to be 2-3 paragraphs)
