This diploma program was created for bible students that do not currently possess a biblical diploma or an associate’s degree and are just starting out. It is a low-cost program that can allow the student to go on to earn a bachelors degree upon completion of the paid program. The requirement to enter the bachelor’s degree program at ACU is either the 87 credit transcript from this program or a biblical diploma from another school or an associate’s degree in any concentration biblical or secular. If you already have a diploma or a degree, you may want to apply directly at ACU. CLICK HERE 


Upon completion of all 22 courses, you will receive:

• A beautifully printed Certificate of Biblical Studies Diploma with an official AISOM gold embossed seal, complete with ribbons, sent in a red certificate folder with a gold crest emblem suitable for framing

• An official course transcript with watermark and stamped embossed seal equal to 87 transferable biblical credits and the right to request us to forward your transcript to other colleges.

• The ability to transfer your 87 credits to AMES Christian University (ACU) and take 11 additional courses worth 33 credits and receive a Bachelor of Biblical Studies (BBS) Degree certificate and transcript.   You will then have obtained 120 credits.

• The satisfaction of knowing that you have completed a Biblical Program and increased your knowledge to effectively communicate God’s Word with confidence and the power to reap souls into the Kingdom of God and partake in the end time harvest.

The ability to receive a regular ministry license or a chaplain’s license through our recommendation. This is the first step towards ordination. (Click Here)

(Once you have graduated from AISOM and received your graduation documents, you are not obligated or required to proceed to ACU for the additional credits or for a BBS degree.  You may simply go on to do whatever God’s will is for your life and future with our congratulations and blessings!!)


What about transfer credits?  We will accept transfer credits from other schools at $15 per credit, and if you do not have 87 credits, you can make up the differences in the $20 AISOM courses. Please note that it will be a lot less expensive to take this program. 40 transfer credits from another school will cost $600 plus you still would lack 47 credits so you would need to take 15 $20 courses for $300 it would end up costing you $900 instead of $440.


Dear Staff, “I must say that the response to sending me my degree was very business-like, and also very quick. I received it in perfect condition today. I am interested in pursuing my education to the next level, and when I make up my mind, I know that this is one university that I can depend on.” Thank You.

“I have been working on “Battle for the Body” and wow, what a concept. I have been a pastor for nine (9) years and have barely even scratched the surface of all the knowledge. I am finding the wisdom is great and I like what I see. The lessons are challenging. If we only knew as pastors what God is really like we would be a lot more effective in our ministries.”

“I want to express my delight in my first study course. It is truly enjoyable, and rich in a wealth of information. It is concise and to the point – simple, but yet profound in context. I want to express my appreciation to Ames Christian University for making such a wonderful program available, and most of all to the Lord for directing me to your Website. “

“I am really enjoying the Old Testament survey. The added study sections after the self-tests are really good. I am currently in the book of Judges and I seem to be coming along well. God has blessed me with a mind ready to search out and receive His truth. Thank you for this ministry and I am very pleased with the materials so far and I look forward to the coming modules.”

“I enjoyed the first course I am taking. Although between work and my home life with the wife and child I do not get as much studying done as I would like but I am moving along. I would like to say thank you for offering these courses at such affordable prices otherwise I would not be able to go to college right now.”

“I have just recently finished the final exam for Old Testament survey and am preparing to start the next course, New Testament survey. I have enjoyed the layout of the courses. They are informative, simple, and easy to follow, yet offer the challenge that an accredited course should offer. Thank You.”

“Hi, it has been close to one week since I enrolled in your college. I just completed Chapter 5 in the Old Testament Survey course. I think the way Harvestime International has put these courses together is great. I am very excited about the studies and being enrolled at Ames. I wish I would have found out about Ames a long time ago.”

“Genesis has turned out to be a great study. I’ve spent a little too much time on it and have slowed down on progress with the rest of the course, but I think it has been worth it. The course has turned out to be even better than I thought it would be.
