Students may join SBC anytime throughout the year. Start by submitting an enrollment application. Once approved, you may register for any upcoming classes!

Each class is $60. Students are eligible for 10% discount when registering for a class at least 2 weeks in advance of the class start date.

For students currently enrolled, please log into your SBC student portal to check class availability and details.

Lectures are taught in the evenings twice a week. We meet on Mondays and Thursdays from 7:00PM to 10:15PM at Slavic Christian Center, Tacoma WA.

Once we’ve reviewed your application, we will reach out to you with a decision. Please allow us 4-5 days for processing.

You will be assigned a mentor once you’re accepted at SBC. He or she is there to support you in your goals, guide you through the registration process and answer any questions you may have.

If you enrolled into our registration system after August 1st 2017 then there’s no need to create a new account. You may log into your existing SBC account and register for classes. (This applies to students who have attended SBC last year.)

If you enrolled into our registration system prior to August 1st 2017 then you need to submit a new enrollment application. This is because we rolled out a new registration system on August 1st 2017 — which required all students to be enrolled in it first. Once your enrollment has been processed, you will receive further instruction on how to register for classes. (This applies to students who have not attended SBC last year but attended in years past.)
