The Diploma program offers a biblical education to any Christian who has a desire to study God’s Word.  Its focus is training laity, Sunday School teachers and church officers.

There are no prerequisites to enter this program, but a high school diploma or GED is recommended.


Candidates for the Degree Division must  have a high school diploma or GED equivalent.  The requirements for each of the degrees offered through the Fredericksburg Bible Institute & Seminary are for students who have matriculated through the Bible Institute and met all the requirements of each degree program.  These new programs are effective as of July 1, 2013.  Students will no longer be grandfathered under old programs and may be required to take additional classes.

Students transferring in from other educational institutions with non-biblical degrees will be required to take additional classes for the degree program they are entering at FBI&S.  Transfer students must meet with the Academic Dean to review their transcripts and discuss the courses they will need to enter a graduate program.
