Bethel University had its humble beginning in the town of McLemoresville, Tennessee. Bethel College, as it was then known, was established in 1842 by the Cumberland Presbyterian Church primarily to train young men for the ministry. The school acquired University status in 2009 and the main campus is located in McKenzie, Tennessee.
Bethel University offers a two Bachelor’s degree programs: Management Program which can be taken on-campus or online, and the Online Leadership Program; and two Masters programs (Master of Business Administration and Master of Arts in Education), both of which are 100% online. Admission requirements for Bethel’s online courses are dependent on the program of choice, however the standard requisites include transcript of records, submission of a completed application form and payment of the application fee. A complete list of admission requirements can be requested from the Bethel University admissions office or through the Bethel University website.
Tuition for online courses are program dependent and do not cover incidental costs such as laboratory fees (if any) and books. Financial aid, however, can be availed of to make earning a degree much more affordable. Types of financial aid available include Federal Grants and State Grants, Vocational Rehabilitation Grants, Workforce Investment Act Grants, and Signature Student Loans. Further information on tuition fees and scholarships can be obtained from Bethel University’s Financial Aid Officer.
