Adult Online Learning

Finish Lines

Online Program

Pursuing Bible and ministry training often requires returning to the physical classroom, but for many adults, that's not a reasonable option. OCC's online learning program trains you where you are! Earn an entire bachelor's degree in biblical studies without leaving your home, job or church. 

All online courses are eight weeks long, with five eight-week modules throughout the year. Each class includes reading and/or lectures, peer discussions over course content, and assignments to deepen and demonstrate learning. Coursework is due Thursdays and Sundays, but may be completed at the student's discretion.

State Authorization

The State Authorization Reciprocity Agreement (SARA) is a national initiative to provide more access to online courses while maintaining compliance standards with state regulatory agencies. SARA establishes a state-level reciprocity process that will support the nation in efforts to increase the educational attainment of its people by making state authorization:

  • More efficient, effective and uniform in regard to necessary and reasonable standards of practice that could span states;
  • More effective in dealing with quality and integrity issues that have arisen in some online/distance education offerings; and
  • ​Less costly for states and institutions and, thereby, the students they serve.

Ozark Christian College is authorized to offer distance education (either through SARA or by state exemption status) in all states.
