He will be able to take the remainder of his seminary classes in either a modular format (two or three days on campus a semester in Louisville, KY and the rest of the class online) or completely online depending on the class.
I'll let Chris update (see first update) y'all with why he wants to finish at this time, but I just wanted to go ahead and get the ball rolling on raising funds because classes start August 14th.
Here is a breakdown of the cost:
Enrollment fee for Fall: $65
Enrollment fee for Spring: $65
Enrollment fee for Winter: $65 (if he takes one of the classes during a January term)
Biblical Counseling Practicum I: $1282 ($294 per credit hour x 3 credit hours + $400 course fee)
Biblical Counseling Practicum II: $1282 ($294 per credit hour x 3 credit hours + $400 course fee)
Personal Evangelism: $882 ($294 per credit hour x 3 credit hours)
New Testament I: $882 ($294 per credit hour x 3 credit hours)
Internet course fee: $250
Books: ~$200-400 (We will try to keep this cost down as much as possible by borrowing from friends, buying used books, or even checking books out from the library)
Trip(s) to Louisville: $400-800 Chris will have to travel to Louisville Sept 15-16, Oct 27-28, Jan 16-19, probably 2 more times for class in the Spring, and 1 time for graduation (gas, lodging, food)
Lastly (I think), Graduation Fee: $200
Grand Total assuming the most for books and trips: $5973 for Chris to finish seminary (We rounded the goal up to account for gofundme fees)
Our first goal is to raise $1400 in the next week or so. If we are able to do raise that money, it would allow Chris to get started taking a class starting August 14th. $1400 includes the enrollment fee, cost for Biblical Counseling Practicum 1, and books.
UPDATE (8/10/17): Chris's fall semester for tuition and books is FULLY FUNDED! His two trips still need funding. Also, our goal has gone up (from $5400) due to more trips being added to the semester and realizing there's an addtional $400 course fee for the Spring Semester.
