Dr. Schwandt is currently on a sabbatical from offering Greek courses and reading groups. We are currently working on a way to offer the educational materials without the live component.

Below are exerpts from the FAQ regarding accreditation.

Are any of the Greek courses accredited or can I receive college or graduate level credit for taking the online Greek course?

Accreditation is normally granted for an entire degree rather than specific subjects. Since the Institute of Biblical Greek only offers Greek courses and not a full undergraduate or graduate degree there is no accreditation available for our courses. However, this does not mean that the courses we offer cannot be used to fulfill credit requirements at colleges, universities, and graduate schools. The courses are commonly used for such purposes.

How can I use the Institute of Biblical Greek web courses to fulfill language requirements at my college, university, seminary, or graduate school?

The general principle to keep in mind is that no educational institution desires to place a student in the wrong level of a language class. A student who is too advanced for a class will be bored and might lead class discussions in unhelpful directions for other students. A student, who is below the class level, may get lost or slow down the pace of the course. So it is in the school's best interest to properly place students. We have never experienced anything to the contrary. This means that students who perform well in the online beginning Greek class will not have to repeat the course at a local college, university, seminary or graduate school. We would be glad to write a letter certifying that you completed the course and how well you performed. Often schools have a placement exam to confirm your progress. Since the basics of biblical Greek are fairly standardized, you can expect to be prepared for such a placement exam. Please read the answer to "How can I use the National Biblical Greek Exam in connection with the online Greek class?" to learn more.

How can I use the National Biblical Greek Exam in connection with the online Greek class?

Near the end of the academic year we recommend that you take the National Biblical Greek Exam (www.GreekExam.com) as an additional independent testimony for your accomplishment. In the past, a number of schools have used the NBGE in place of their own placement exam or even to fulfill their language requirement. The NBGE and a letter from the online web course is a strong combination to best inform your local school how to place you in their program.
