The founding objective of Drs. William and Shirley Comfort, 40 years ago, in launching the Chesapeake Bible College & Seminary, has remained consistent.  Dr. William Comfort wanted to bring quality Biblical College Education from the top shelf and bring it within reach for all who felt the call to pursue a Biblical Degree through an organized and recognized Bible College.

To that end, Chesapeake Bible College & Seminary has always sought to keep tuition and related costs at the lowest level that is consistent with a top rated education experience.  As a heritage correspondence school,, operation through Distance Learning Centers and individual student interactions, the College has been able to maintain a cost structure that represents a fraction of the cost of traditional on campus schools.

2016 Research shows that the average cost of tuition at an established on campus Bible College ranges from $6,000-$12,000 per year – which still represents an excellent value in Biblical College education.  For many though, the time constraints required in an on campus Biblical Education, let alone the financial expense, precludes most from being able to pursue their God-given passion for furthering their Christian education.

Chesapeake Bible College works diligently to provide an equivalent level academic educational experience, through its online and distance learning center approaches, while keeping the cumulative total cost of a the full Bachelors of Christian Ministry to about the cost of just one year of on-campus education.  That is why more and more people are choosing Chesapeake Bible College & Seminary as the correct move in their lives – study anytime/anywhere/affordably.
