    School Overview

    Three separate Bible institutes for higher learning were founded in Kansas City, Kansas, Salina, Kansas, and Ozark, Arkansas, during the first part of the twentieth century. Each progressed forward, establishing baccalaureate programs. Then mergers began, and by 1987 the three schools transitioned into a single Calvary Bible College, located in Kansas City. During this same period, Calvary Theological Seminary began operating as a branch of the College. When the other three campuses merged in 1992, Calvary Theological Seminary established a separate institution. At first, both Calvary Bible College and Calvary Theological Seminary operated as two individual schools, but in 2016, the institutions merged and rebranded as Calvary University.

    Calvary University is a private, not-for-profit, non-denominational institution based on Christian principals. The university awards associate’s, bachelor’s, and master's degrees, along with certificates. Calvary University also provides a non-traditional format for added flexibility, including all online degrees.
