Fruitland Baptist Bible College is a ministry of the Baptist State Convention of North Carolina! This means that when Baptist Churches in North Carolina support the Cooperative Program, they are supporting Fruitland. We are very grateful for this and this giving makes Fruitland significantly cheaper than other schools.  Here is a list of the tuition and fees you can expect when you’re at Fruitland.

Application Fee

The Application Fee is a one-time Charge of $50.00


Books costs approximately $300 every two quarters.

Your costs for books will vary each quarter that you are at Fruitland. However, Fruitland is very conscious of keeping these costs to a minimum.

Fruitland’s book fees are a fraction of the costs of other colleges!
