Want to earn credits but you're not quite ready to begin a degree program?

The International Apostolic Institute offers a series of certificate programs which allow you to earn credits toward a degree before formally enrolling as a degree program student.

Programs for Non-Degree Seeking Students

Students who do not desire to being a degree path immediately may enroll in any of the following certificate programs. Students will receive the following certificates upon the completion of the relevant coursework. As IAI continues its five-year restructuring and curriculum development master plan, more certificate programs will become available. 

Certificate of Basic Doctrinal Studies ​

  • Bible 1 

  • Doctrine 1, 2, 3, 4, & 5

Certificate of Biblical & Church History ​

  • Bible 2

  • Bible Chronology 1 & 2

  • Church History 1, 2, 3, & 4

Credits earned in certificate programs may be transferred to a degree program. Students will be subject to a matriculation fee payable upon transfer. 

Enrolling in a Certificate Program


  • Potential students must complete an online application including a brief biography. 

  • A one-time $30 application fee is charged upon a potential student's first application. Should the student seek to transition to a degree program, no further application fee will be charged. 


  • Certificate program students will not pay a matriculation fee. Should a certificate program student seek to transition to a degree program, the standard $300 matriculation fee will be charged at that time. 


  • Tuitions are paid at the beginning of each course with costs ranging from $50-$75 per course.

    • For the 2024 academic year, total certificate program course tuitions will be: 

      • Certificate of Basic Doctrinal Studies: $450​

      • Certificate of Biblical & Church History: $525


  • Upon completion of all requisite coursework, a certificate of completion will be issued at no additional charge. 


  • Any student failing to complete a certificate program within twelve months from the time of purchasing the first course shall be considered in a lapsed status and shall be subject to a $25 reenrollment fee before further coursework will be accepted. 


  • Application and reenrollment fees are non-refundable. 

  • Because tuitions are paid in advance of receiving coursework, tuitions are non-refundable.
