International Students should consider the financial cost of being a student at our school. See below for an outline of expected costs.

Prior to beginning the visa application process, International students are required to transfer money to a school bank account for possible medical expenses, legal fees for the extension of their visa, and return airfares (Canadian students are exempt). The amount varies depending on whether you are coming as an individual, a couple, or as a family with children (See the table below for the exact amount). EI School of Biblical Training will not begin the visa process with a prospective international student until the funds are received. Funds will be returned to the student if he/she is unable to come.

Funds Held by School

Funds in US Dollars
Administrative Fee $ 50
Medical Expenses Individual $ 250
Medical Expenses Couples and Families $ 500
Legal Fees (Ext. of Visa) $ 370
Return Airfare (Students are responsible to pay any portion of their return airfare that exceeds the deposited amount) Based on the cost of a one-way ticket from US to your country

Once you have made the deposit to the school bank account, we will begin your visa application process. The costs for the visa application are detailed below.
