- The College of Biblical Studies of Houston, Texas is the largest nationally accredited, multi-ethnic Bible College in North America. Since 1979, CBS has been developing Christian leaders to serve our multi-ethnic community. A commuter college where tuition is kept low to broaden access to higher education, CBS provides instruction six days a week, offering morning, afternoon, evening and Saturday classes so that students can fit education into their life schedule. In the fall of 1979, the first classes of Houston Bible Institute, were offered. The school's first Executive Director was Rev. Rodney L. Cooper, Th.M. From inception, the school used the facilities of KHCB-FM, a Houston-based Christian radio network, for its classrooms, and leased administrative space nearby. In 1995, the work of building a campus began with the purchase of the Dale Carnegie National Training Center. Presently, the College owns 159,417 square feet of building on 14 acres of land and a net worth of 11.1 million dollars. As of August 2003, CBS offers three bachelor degree programs (Bachelors of Science in Biblical Counseling, Christian Leadership and Christian Ministry), an Associate in Biblical Studies and a Bible Certificate program.

We look at why millions of Americans are choosing community college over a traditional four-year school today.
Many students enroll in community college with the intent of transferring to a four-year school. Of those who do, many succeed, and yet traditional colleges and universities continue to overlook them. Read on to learn more about why more community college students don’t transfer schools and to receive some tips for making the transfer yourself.
Community college is the only option for many students who either can’t afford a traditional four-year university or who need a more flexible school environment. Just because community college is different, however, doesn’t mean that its students matter any less. The Aspen Prize exists to encourage community colleges to do more for their students and to continually strive for improvement.
