Enrollment Costs - New Tribes Bible Institute

Enrollment Costs

Graduate Debt Free from New Tribes Bible Institute.

New Tribes Bible Institute (NTBI) is one of the most affordable places to get a Bible education and start your missions training. Your costs at NTBI are about $9,000 a year which includes your tuition, room and board. Since NTBI was founded, we wanted to provide men and women the opportunity to study God’s Word without the hindrance of debt.

In order to keep costs affordable, the staff at NTBI are supported by local churches and individuals as NTM missionaries so none of your semester fees go to employing your teachers.
