Louisiana Baptist University is pleased to provide qualifying inmates with basic academic studies by mail that can lead to a Bachelor of Arts degree in Biblical Studies at minimal cost. To qualify, a student must first successfully complete ALL 35 studies in the Exodus Prison Ministry Bible Correspondence School with no grade lower than 90.
LBU’s Exodus Prison Ministry is termed Inverted Degree Program because usually basic courses such as English, Math, and History are required at the beginning of a degree program. Because of the intensity of the Exodus Bible studies, LBU has designed an Inverted Degree Program allowing students to take the core studies at the end of the Exodus studies at a cost less than regular non-prisoner rates.
To receive reduced rates, the student must start the program while incarcerated. If the student has started but not completed the LBU studies before release, he/she may continue for ONE year at the reduced rate. Those enrolling in LBU after release will pay regular rates.
