A Ground-breaking Opportunity: Empowering TUMI Graduates 

Lancaster Bible College has approved the ability for TUMI students to transfer completed TUMI modules for credit into Degree Completion. Each of the 16 modules from TUMI is worth 1.7 credits, for a potential total of 27.2 transfer credits. That’s almost a year’s worth of traditional college!

An Opportunity for TUMI's Capstone Graduates

LBC is excited to also offer Continuing Education Units (CEUs) to TUMI students through Biblical Enrichment, our Non-Degree program.  TUMI students can opt to earn CEUs through Lancaster Bible College for each TUMI course completed.  Each TUMI course will earn 2 CEUs.  A TUMI student would need to complete 15 courses (2 CEUs each) to earn an Advanced Continuing Education Certificate (30 CEUs), allowing them to participate in LBC’s graduation ceremony and become official alumni of Lancaster Bible College.  Our administrative fee for transcribing CEUs from studies elsewhere is currently $10 per CEU.  The cost to the student would be $300 for CEU fees (currently $10 per CEU) plus a graduation fee (currently $50).  Even while earning CEUs, and eventually LBC’s Advanced Continuing Education Certificate, TUMI students will still have the option of transfer credits to LBC’s Accelerated Undergraduate program.  That is, TUMI courses may be used for both CEUs and transfer credits (not just one or the other).  Please contact This email address is being protected from spambots.

Designed for Flexibility

Biblical Studies (Modules 1, 5, 9, 13)
Theology and Ethics (Modules 2, 6, 10, 14)
Total of 8 courses = 13.6 credits in Bible and Theology

Christian Ministry (Modules 3, 7, 11, 15)
Urban Mission (Modules 4, 8, 12, 16)
Total of 8 courses = 13.6 credits in “Professional” (Church and Ministry Leadership department mostly). Can be used in Degree Completion towards “pure elective” credits.

LBC’s A.S. degree = 61 credits. 27 credits in Bible and Theology. 22 in General Education (Arts & Sciences). And 12 pure elective credits. A student transferring in 16 modules from TUMI could finish LBC’s A.S. degree through as few as 12 more courses. (They would need 13.4 more Bible/Theology credits, and 22 Arts & Sciences credits (a total of 35.4 credits = approx. 12 courses).

LBC’s B.S. degree = 120 credits. 30 in Bible and Theology. 42 in General Education (Arts & Sciences). And 48 pure elective credits. A student transferring in 16 modules from TUMI could finish LBC’s B.S. degree through as few as 21 more courses. (They would need 16.4 more Bible/Theology credits, 42 Arts & Sciences credits, and 4.4 more pure elective credits [48 minus 30 life experience credits minus 13.6 professional credits from TUMI] for a total of 62.8 credits = approx. 21 courses).

Students may also transfer in credits from other schools as well, which would further reduce their LBC credit requirements for graduation. Adults may complete these degrees entirely through online studies with LBC. There is no requirement to come to campus.
