ABOUT YOUR EMI COURSE
WHAT IS A TYPICAL COURSE?
Almost all classes run on a 3/1 timetable. Each class will begin with three weeks of instruction followed by week four which is the final exam week. Each instruction week presents about 2 hours of teaching material as well as downloadable notes and course materials. During the second and third week of class we provide a weekly discussion forum where the students can discuss the material presented with the instructor.
WHO CAN PARTICIPATE IN AN EMI COURSE?
Our Diversity Distinction is what makes the EMI Bible School unique. We believe that all believers including – Divorced, Gay/Lesbian and the Retired – should have the opportunity to fulfill God’s call for their lives.
WHAT IF I AM FROM OUTSIDE THE UNITED STATES?
The EMI School is an international online school which welcomes students from around the world. We have had students participate from countries such as: South Africa, Taiwan, Australia, Mexico and Brazil to name but a few.
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO GRADUATE?
There are two types of students attending The EMI Bible School: Those pursuing a Diploma in Ministry and those who are attending for personal growth and spiritual enrichment. The Diploma in Ministry Program can normally be completed within two years. If your goal is personal growth and spiritual enrichment, you have the option of taking individual courses according to your preference.

Tuition is a reasonable $45(US) per course and is payable at the beginning of each class. In addition, we have an Introduce a Friend incentive program whereby if you introduce another student to the EMI School you will be given a $20 discount off your next course.
ARE THERE EXAMS?
There is a final exam at the end of each course which accounts for 80% of your grade the other 20% of your grade is earned in the discussion forum. If you are participating in the Diploma Program, you must pass each exam with a B minimum.
