Adonai International Education Network


Please read this page in its entirety to acquaint yourself with the network and its requirements.   


Establishing a Network School
You can establish an affiliate branch school of Adonai International Christian University (AICU) at your church, ministry, or mission to offer certificate, diploma, and associate's degree programs by becoming a member of Adonai International Education Network (AIEN).  AIEN is the affiliate extension center division of Adonai International Christian University (AICU), the administrative umbrella under which affiliate branch centers can be established to operate extension schools offering AICU undergraduate curriculum, allowing a student to complete up to a bachelor's degree at the local extension school.  A new or existing school can become a member of AIEN to offer AICU programs at the undergraduate level.  

A network extension school has the option of starting either non-credit advanced training programs through Adonai Theological Institute (ATI) or undergraduate diploma and degree programs through Adonai Theological College (ATC).  Hence a network extension school can establish up to a four year program at their local church, ministry or mission.  There are three(3) options available to network schools.
