Making education affordable
LMC receives financial support from individuals, organisations and churches that view the preparation of gospel labourers as a facet of the Great Commission. Consequently, the college is able to provide theological training at a very affordable rate.
Block classes are charged separately. Students in the Core Programme may be asked to pay extra fees for the block classes, depending on what costs the college has in setting them up (e.g. speakers’ expenses, and food and lodging). Once the academic dead ascertains the cost of the block classes to be passed on to the students, they will be informed accordingly.
The term fees should be paid at the beginning of each term or when the student first enrols. The term enrolment fee will be prorated for those who enrol in the middle of a term.
Students (or their home church) are responsible to purchase the textbooks, course media, and other materials for learning.
Every so often the college raises scholarship money for students to help those who are struggling to pay their fees. These are only available to students who are going into their second year of studies onwards and who have performed exceptionally well in the previous year. If you answer to this description, do not hesitate to ask for this.
Fees and Tuition
Currently (2015), LMC is charging the student a nominal tuition of K500 per term, which works out to K1,500 per year. If a student wishes to break down his fees further, he can pay K200 per month per term, which works out to K1,800 for the whole year.
We believe this is a reasonable amount of expense for a college student to manage.
How can LMC offer a full ministerial education at such a reduced cost? Part of the reason lies in the fact that we are a part time learning school. We do not need to charge the student to maintain the overhead expenses of building facilities and a resident faculty. But another part of the reason lies in the fact that LMC is partially supported by the generosity of individuals, organisations, and local churches. Indeed, this is one more reason why LMC is a “church-based” college. We believe local churches should be willing to invest in those who aspire after and show potential for the ministry. In light of this, we would like you to consider supporting LMC financially (if you have not already begun to do so). If you are interested in supporting the college or in knowing more about our financial needs, please contact the college principal.
