Q: Why should I take YWAM Hollywood’s Distant Learning classes? A: We’re glad you asked! There are lots of reasons. Here are 10 good reasons WHY to get you started! 

Q: What is the cost of tuition? A: Tuition is $220 per credit hour.- The first core course is called the Supernatural Destiny School (SDS). The SDS is divided into 2 classes, 3 College Credit hours each, with each class tuition of $660, for a total cost of $1320 for the 6 hour course. 

– The second core course is called the Supernatural Success School (S3). The S3 is divided into 3 classes, 2 College Credit hours each, with each class tuition of  $440, for a total cost of $1320 for the 6 hour course.

YWAM Hollywood’s additional creative studies are called the Discipling the Nations through Arts, Media & Entertainment Schools (DNA-ME). Students can take individual seminars, workshops, classes, and schools in a variety of creative disciplines. Many of these classes are currently only taught on-location. As the classes are made available for online students, we will add them to our website. More information: Discipling the Nations through Arts, Media & Entertainment Schools (DNA-ME).

Q: Do you have a scholarship or discount program for students? A: Yes, there is a discount available for those who pay for all core course classes in a specific course together at the same time. We are not currently offering any scholarships, but we hope that there will be donations in the future, that would make it possible for those in need to apply for scholarships. Please understand, that the courses are already far below any comparable coursework available in the field, and at a significant reduction from the Destiny Center executive retreat seminars, which contain a portion only a portion of the school content.
