Forest, VA – July 8, 2008 – Light University will be launching online classes beginning August 1, 2008. A special “Celebration Scholarship” will be offered to the first 300 students who enroll—a savings of $451. At $299 per course, that’s a savings of 60% over the regular tuition of $750. “This has to be one of the most exciting announcements I have ever made,” said Dr. Tim Clinton, Light University President.
Since 1999, Light University has been offering training for individuals who have a desire to increase their knowledge and skills in biblical counseling and ministry. Today, nearly 120,000 students are enrolled. On August 1st, Light University will offer a convenient, Web-based, 10-week, online format that will allow students to attend classes anywhere and at any time. The convenience of the “portable classroom” is specifically tailored to meet the needs of today’s active student. “I am praying that God will allow us to train one million leaders worldwide,” Clinton said.
Light University is part of an exploding learning community that respects Godly values and beliefs by offering biblical counseling courses such as: Caring for People God’s Way, Healthy Sexuality, Breaking Free, Caring for Kids God’s Way, Caring for Teens God’s Way, Marriage Works and Extraordinary Women. Unlike most online programs, Light’s world-class faculty shares their knowledge and expertise through an online video format, offering students an opportunity to complete individual courses toward their Certificate, Regular Diploma or Advanced Diploma in Biblical Counseling in just 10 weeks.
This new, interactive, online learning environment permits students to dialogue and study with friends and peers, while having an assigned faculty member who will be available to answer questions and offer direction on course content. Also, the exam scoring system will give students immediate results and feedback, allowing them to track their progress.
Light University’s mission is to train and equip individuals—those who have a heart for helping people in need—with the tools necessary to be effective in their ministries to others. “God has truly blessed us by providing this exciting, state-of-the-art learning opportunity for our students,” said Clinton. “It’s just another step in the right direction toward our goal of training and equipping one million leaders with the skills necessary to increase their ministry effectiveness.”
The first 300 students to enroll are eligible to take advantage of this special “Celebration Scholarship” savings offer—only $299 per course (regularly $750)… a savings of $451! Call 1-800-526-8673 or go online at www.LightUniversity.com today to enroll.
