Tuition and Fees

LOW TUITION COMMITMENT

The River School of Government has the standpoint that a quality spiritual education that trains an individual for service to the Lord Jesus Christ, should not leave that individual with oppressive financial debt.

 

We, therefore, have not sought the very costly regional accreditation that leads to qualification for government-guaranteed student loans. Institutions using such loans generally charge the maximum tuition allowable, leaving the student with a sizeable debt at the completion of their education. For those called to the ministry, it can be very difficult to obey God’s calling with this type of debt lingering over their finances. Therefore, the River School of Government elected a less costly, yet just as valid independent accreditation through Transworld Accrediting Commission International.

 

The River School of Government also does not participate in government-sponsored grants, for our approach is to provide the most affordable, quality, spiritual education that we can as a ministry to the Lord and His servants.
