Frequently Asked Questions
Yes, Bethany Global University is accredited by the Association for Biblical Higher Education (ABHE) for accreditation. ABHE is a North American agency, made of approximately 200 postsecondary institutions throughout North America specializing in biblical ministry formation and professional leadership education.
Full-time married students may have the option to live off campus if they are able to commute to BGU daily, allowing them to be at home each night. Full-time single students are required to live on campus as an element of the unique community experience essential to our missions preparation. Part-time students are not permitted to live in the dorms, since they do not pay room and board.
BGU graduates are equipped to work in a wide variety of cross-cultural settings and ministries. Since our training is geared toward giving students tools for communicating Christ cross-culturally, our graduates are able to live and work effectively in those circumstances. Alumni are missionaries with our own mission sending agency, Bethany International Missions, and many other agencies, such as WEC, Operation Mobilization, SIM, Pioneers, Wycliffe, and YWAM, to name a few. They are involved in teaching and training, literacy, teaching English as a second language, relief and development, medical and mercy ministries, agricultural work, orphanages, coffee house ministry, church planting, evangelism, missionary aviation, prayer and worship, and more.
Many of our graduates go on to full or part-time ministry positions either in the U.S. and Canada or overseas and the vast majority of those graduates in the U.S. are actively involved in missions in their local church.
