Browse frequently asked questions about SCOPE's online pathways to personal, professional, and organizational success.

Why should I choose SCOPE?

SCOPE understands that each adult learner wants to reach their next “impossible” but does not always know how to get there. We can provide you with a pathway to success and the skills you need to succeed from a biblical worldview. You can be confident that the Bible will be central while you learn how to practically apply biblical principles in your life's work. Learn more about the foundation of SCOPE at the Mission, Vision and Core Values page.

Are SCOPE pathways flexible enough to work with my schedule?

SCOPE develops its courses with the adult learner in mind. Courses are offered asynchronously so that you can have the flexibility you need to complete your coursework. 

Is getting a certificate or advanced degree affordable for me?

How do SCOPE courses have a biblical worldview?

Biblical worldview within a SCOPE course does not originate while the course is being facilitated. Biblical worldview originates during the development of the course. Time and thought are given to how a student’s encounter with a subject area that God has made should then naturally lead those students to worship that same God.
