Online courses do not require students to attend classes at our physical campus. Learning takes place through our learning management system called TCALearn.
Online courses offer the same academic rigor and practical equipping as our face-to-face programs. Students taking online courses will have to complete weekly learning activities while actively participating in an online community. The online delivery provides greater flexibility for students to manage their schedules and equip themselves while remaining engaged in their work or ministry. Academic credits earned through online programs are readily accepted into other TCA programs of the same school.

Students are responsible for purchasing their own textbooks. You will need to get your textbooks before the course begins.
Must I purchase the textbooks? Will I be able to borrow them from the library?
