EXTRA PERK: Receive One Free Audit Registration!
For a limited time only, each family that registers their homeschool student in one (for-credit) course will receive one free audit registration (valued at $75/course) for another family member or friend 15 years of age or older to use for the Spring 2015 semester.

In other words, when your homeschool daughter or son registers for NT3321 Paul and His Letters (or another approved course above) for credit, you are credited one free audit registration to use for yourself to join them in class or to dole out to another person in your family or community to enjoy a course of their choosing.

As an auditor, you get access to all the on-campus classes, materials, discussion, and homework without the requirement to take the exams because it isn’t for credit or for a grade. Auditing is a wonderful opportunity for people to continue their learning of the ancient Word of God in a very-focused, deep study for an entire semester.

Give the gift of Christian education to your family and others. Enter your name and details below.
