Discounts for Online Courses at AMBS

Online students can receive special financial aid equal to half the tuition when they fit one of the two groups described below.

Non-admitted, first-time students

Any individual will receive this benefit when taking a first online course if he or she has not previously taken a course at AMBS and is not admitted to, is not enrolled in and has not graduated from another graduate theological program. These students must submit transcripts from previous study. It is expected that students will have a bachelor's degree, but students without a bachelor's degree may be enrolled. The student services fee applies and is not discounted. Persons meeting these qualifications may register using the registration form for non-admitted students.

Students at Conrad Grebel University College (CGUC) and Canadian Mennonite University (CMU)

Students enrolled in masters-level programs at these two institutions will receive this benefit for all online AMBS courses they take. These students must show proof of enrollment in the form of a letter of standing from their school. The student services fee applies and is not discounted.


Students wishing to receive this benefit should register using the appropriate online registration form (“CMU/Conrad Grebel” or “one-course”) and select the “online” course type.

  • First-time online students: First-time online students: Pay applicable tuition and fees. This can be done securely online with a credit card at time of registration. Or the student can mail a check or money order payable to AMBS with a copy of the registration form to Registrar office, AMBS, 3003 Benham Ave, Elkhart, IN  46517-1947. Enrollment will be processed after payment is received.
  • Conrad Grebel University College students: AMBS will arrange with CGUC for tuition to be paid.
  • CMU and other Canadian students: Canadian students may pay tuition at par by calling the AMBS Business Office at 574-295- 3726 x226 to request the equivalent US amount at par of the Canadian. Your call will then be forwarded to the AMBS receptionist, who will take your credit card information and process your payment in the US equivalent amount determined by the Business Office. Alternatively, you may mail a Canadian funds check for the owed tuition amount (see mailing instructions above).

Important: Making a credit card payment online at the time of registration does not allow the option of paying tuition at par.

Additional procedures and policies are being documented and we will update this page as more information is available.
