There is a non-refundable application fee of $100 due when applying. This fee is tied to the application process and is submitted on-line. If accepted into the program, this amount will be applied toward tuition. If the applicant does not end up participating in the program, the $100 can be used to offset future purchases, registrations, or fees with NBS.
Tuition is $2000. This includes the lodging and meals for the required 2018 Festival Gathering and subsequent face-to-face ABS meeting (assuming double occupancy). It does NOT include FG registration, any costs for the required year-end meeting, travel to either event, nor your NBS membership for that year.

FEE SCHEDULE FOR 2016 BASIC CERTIFICATION STUDENTS:
$100 due upon application (Fall of 2017)
$600 due January 25, 2018
$700 due April 1, 2018

Refunds of fees for withdrawal from the program before completion will be according to the following schedule: $400 – January 31 $300 – February 28 $200 – March 31 $100 – April 30 $50 – May 31
For students who do not complete all the required work within the allotted 12-month-period, a $100 fee will be charged each “semester” to maintain matriculation. (January 1 – July 1 is the spring semester and July – Dec. 31 is the fall semester). Students who end up needing to drop out for more than a semester do not have to maintain matriculation but once they’re ready to re-matriculate and finish up their work, there will be a $250 fee to do so.
Candidates, and subsequent graduates, of both programs will be expected to be members of the Network of Biblical Storytellers and to participate in, and contribute to, the NBS community and attend the annual Festival Gatherings. Most importantly, the hope is that all graduates will do their part in helping NBS to achieve its mission:
To encourage everyone to learn and tell biblical stories.
