Enrollment Options

Full Time

Our full-time program is for students who feel called into full-time ministry. Our full-time students will be at the church Monday-Thursday working in their internships with their selected ministry as well as focusing on their academics.

This part-time option allows students to continue their education in a number of degree options at the discounted rates that Radiant College is able to offer. These students will still get to experience community in Radiant College through small groups and other fun Radiant College activities.
