Frequently Asked Questions
How do I get to and from Denver International Airport
Timberline provides transportation for all trips and programs for the Bible school, however, students are required to arrange their own transportation to/from the airport for school breaks and arrival days at Timberline. (Our Fall missions trip concludes at the end of the first semester, so students are transported to the Denver airport, and will be able to fly home from there or from the city where the Fall missions trip was hosted - typically New York City)
Home James Transportation provides daily service from Denver International Airport to Fraser. On arrival days, Timberline collects students from the drop-off location in Fraser. See their website for more information: www.ridehj.com regarding shuttle schedules. Amtrak also provides daily train service to Fraser.
What is taught in the classroom
Over fifteen books of the Bible and topical studies typically including: Genesis, Joshua, Judges, 1st Samuel, 1st Kings, Ezra, Job, Psalms, Ecclesiastes, Isaiah, Minor Prophets, Mark, Acts, Romans, Corinthians, Ephesians, Philippians, Colossians, Thessalonians, Timothy, Hebrews, James, Revelation, Trinity, Evangelism, Youth Ministry, How to Study the Bible, and Feasts of Israel.
Is the Bible School accredited
As an eight-month Bible school, we are not regionally accredited, however, there is a growing list of Christian colleges that will allow students to transfer up to fifteen credit hours for studies completed here. Some examples are: Columbia International University, SC http/www.ciu.edu/; Crown College, MN: http://www.crown.edu/; Oak Hills Christian College, MN: http://www.oakhills.edu/; and Colorado Christian University, CO http://www.ccu.edu/. We are currently pursuing more opportunities for credit transfer.

An additional fee is required for students requiring a special diet (gluten/dairy free etc.) See the financial agreement form for details.
Students enjoy a 3-4 week Christmas break immediately following the Fall missions trip. Students are required to be away from campus over break. See the Dates and Fees section for specifics.
International students will work with our registrar and our immigration attorney to obtain a visa for their time of study in the United States. Please email our registrar at email@example.com with any questions.
WiFi is available to students in the main lodge. Because of our location, our wireless internet speeds are not as fast as many students from more urban areas are used to.
Can guests visit
Absolutely! Students are permitted to host guests in their dorm room up to 5 nights at a time. We also gave guest rooms available at a discounted rate for friends and family of current students.
Is it possible to register early
An early commitment is advised because slots generally begin to fill in January. Timberline offers an early registration incentive each year. See the "Dates and Fees" page.
