Every residential Chicago undergraduate student is awarded this grant, worth up to $12,960 a year. Off-campus commuter students pay $360 per credit hour.

Elementary Education Certification
The Bachelors in Elementary Education program at Moody Bible Institute is not currently designed to meet the licensure standards set by the state of Illinois. It does meet the Association of Christian School International requirements for ACSI Certification. Moody Bible Institute cannot determine whether a particular licensure program meets the requirements outside of Illinois. Students seeking licensure in another state are advised to contact the appropriate licensing board in that state to determine specific requirements or guidelines for reciprocity.
