Can I register for classes online?

Yes, you can enroll in courses at anytime. You have access to your courses 24/7/365. Course access lasts for one year from the date of purchase.


What is the difference between each of the programs?

While each program is focused on the fields of biblical counseling, life coaching and caregiving, the Certificate programs reflects an emphasis on general caregiving or life coaching in personal ministry. Our Diploma Programs have a more detailed focus on issues facing individuals and families today, and how to deal with each one. The Master Diploma programs provide an extensive and customized learning experience to specific fields of interest and further prepare students for counseling ministry, life coaching and additional credentialing.


Are the courses flexible enough to fit my busy schedule? How does it work?

Definitely! Our courses are on an On-Demand Module format. This new streamlined process will give students instant access to the course content and applicable assessments. Students will be able to navigate and complete the modules at their own pace and will retain access to the content until one year after purchase. We anticipate this will result in higher course completion rates and the ability to complete our array of certificates and diplomas in a more efficient manner. Study where and when you want!


What are the costs for the online program?

In short, our courses are high value, affordably priced, to change millions of lives. Nowhere else will you find the outstanding, renown faculty and distinctively Christian courses all in one place that Light University offers. It simply does not exist and the corresponding value is truly priceless. However, Light University is designed to bring life change to millions by educating thousands of Christian leaders, counselors and lay people with the necessary resources. As a result, we strive to keep our course costs very affordable, and much lower than other online Christian counseling offerings.


Is Light University an accredited institution?

Light University is not regionally accredited but holds to the highest academic standards in the development and delivery of its curriculum. Going back to college is not for everyone, and you need to carefully consider whether committing the time and money to earn or finish your degree is really what you need to do at this stage of your life. For some it is, but for others, Light University’s academically-sound, clinically-excellent, and distinctively-Christian programs—which are accelerated and affordable—are a much better fit and exactly what they need at the present time.
