Lewis House Classes

Lewis House classes provide every college student an opportunity to take thought-provoking classes with Christian professors at affordable tuition rates.

We come to college to get a degree. But that shouldn’t be the only reason we come to college. College is a unique time to explore big questions and find good answers that will impact the rest of your life. 

Yet so many colleges leave God out of the question—and especially the answers. At Lewis House, we’re eager to see how God fits into your syllabus. These aren’t the classes you have to take. These are classes you want to take. 

Good conversations are even better with good conversation partners. In addition to like-minded students and faithful professors, you’ll learn from some of the wisest minds in the history of the Church. Thomas Aquinas and C. S. Lewis aren’t just historical figures. They can become friends that help you think and live well as a Christian—in college and beyond.  

And the best part is: you can earn credit toward your degree at an affordable cost. For only $99 (thanks to the generosity of Lewis House patrons!), you can take one of our three-hour, accredited courses in Christian thought. Apply now!

FAQs about Lewis House Classes:

1. This fall we are offering Basic Christian Theology, a 3 hour upper-level course. This class is offered through our accreditation from Asbury as TH 250, and will transfer into UK as GEED 250. This is a general credit, and it counts toward your graduation hour requirements for 200+ level courses.

2. This class is approved by the UK/BCTC Registrar’s office for transfer credit! We guarantee this, or else you will receive a 100% refund.

3. UK and BCTC have already approved transfer credits through Asbury, but you should decide if it fits into your schedule or is helpful toward getting your degree. So you should talk about it with your university academic advisor. Again, this course is guaranteed to transfer in by the Registrar’s office, so the advisor should not say it won’t count for you.

4. Make sure when you sign up for your other classes that you understand this class does not count towards your status as a UK/BCTC student. You would still need to take 12 credit hours of UK or BCTC coursework to retain full-time status. We recommend taking 12 hours of credit at UK/BCTC, and supplementing that with this course through Lewis House so you have a total load of 15 credit hours.

5. Once you have decided the course would work for you, apply for a spot in our class. You can do that here. It takes less than 5 minutes and requires no outside documentation. Applications are due by May 1st, and we only have a limited number of spots, so get started now!

6. Set up a meeting with a Lewis House staff member and advisor. We’ll help you quickly fill out the paperwork that Asbury, our accrediting university, will need to get you your credit! It’s easy and should only take a few minutes. You’ll pay a small deposit on your tuition then (that counts toward the total).

7. Before the beginning of the semester, you’ll pay the remaining balance for the class, then you’re all set!

Yes! You won’t register through UK, but you can take our classes, which are accredited through Asbury University, and transfer the credit to UK or BCTC with no problems.

We are planning to allow non-students and auditors to sit in on these courses, if the class size is not filled by for-credit students. Priority will be given to those of college(-ish) age and those seeking credit for the course.

College credit is available to students taking Lewis House classes through an incredible partnership with Asbury University. Our classes are designed in conjunction with Asbury and so share in their accreditation. The course credit you receive will be a credit that transfers from Asbury University to UK (or BCTC). Course transfer between these institutions is not an uncommon thing, which gives added assurance that the process will be clear and smooth.

If you want to maintain full-time status at UK, you need to make sure you take at least 12 hours of UK courses. Anything you take in addition to that through us won’t affect your status.
