Start Online, Finish in New York

We’re flexible. King’s Crossover is a hybrid program that lets you complete up to two years of coursework online and a minimum of two years in New York City. To meet families where they are, we offer our unique politics, philosophy, and economics core curriculum in an online format with the same academic standards as our on-campus courses. When you’re ready (whether that’s after just one semester or as many as four), transition to New York City to complete your degree: no need to re-apply.

Crossover students are required to attend a one week-long visit to campus during Interregnum week (April 5-11) in the spring 2021 semester.

Course Offerings

Online course selections draw from our Core Curriculum in Politics, Philosophy, and Economics, courses which every student at The King’s College completes to develop a biblical perspective on the big questions of poverty, justice, and truth throughout history. These courses aren’t throwaway gen-eds: they tackle the disciplines you need to live, think, and lead. Once you transition to campus, you will focus on your major while leveraging the connections possible only in New York City.

Student Life

Connecting with the Community

During your time as an online student, you are warmly welcomed into the broader community of The King’s College and you begin making friendships with fellow students even before you arrive on campus.

  • Become an affiliate member of your House to engage with current students, participate in institutional competitions, and stay connected to campus life.
  • Attend a cohort check-in twice per semester to discuss advising, career development, and other topics.
  • Attend virtual campus events such as the weekly Public Reading of Scripture and Community Updates and a monthly Bible study exclusive to Crossover students, led by the student director of spiritual life.
  • Attend a virtual gathering with a Student Development team member once a semester.
How many students have participated in the Crossover program?

Since its inception 5 years ago, King’s Crossover has met the needs of 72 students, providing them with the chance to take part in our programs online until they were in a better position to transition to campus life.

Are classes from the Crossover program fully accredited?

Yes, the courses are fully accredited (and transferable as necessary), under the College’s accreditation from the Middle States Commission on Higher Education. The Crossover courses have the same student-learning outcomes whether a student takes them on-campus or online.

Is financial aid applicable to the costs of the Crossover program?

To make a program like King’s Crossover possible, the pricing model is a flat fee for full-time study (12-15 credits), plus a $150 technology fee for each online course. While enrolled in the online portion, Crossover students are not eligible for Institutional aid, but they are eligible for Federal Aid (Pell and Stafford Loans) and State Aid (TAP). Once Crossover students transition from online to on-campus, Institutional aid becomes available. Students who were initially planning to be on campus for their first semester may switch to King’s Crossover while retaining their aid package  for when they move on-campus.

What are the total costs of participating in the Crossover program?

The direct cost for all online semesters includes $6,500 per semester for 12-15 credits, plus a $150 technology fee per online course. The typical breakdown of course work over a given year is four courses in the fall and four in the spring, with two classes over the summer. There are considerable savings due to the elimination of $14,400 in housing costs per year and the indirect costs of living in NYC. This savings allows many families the financial flexibility to afford at least two years in NYC.

Tuition and Costs
When students from the Crossover program transition from online to on-campus, is there a focused effort to integrate them into the student body who already know one another?

As a cohort, King’s Crossover students attend the New Student Orientation (NSO) scheduled for their entry semester (fall or spring) along with other new-to-campus students such as transfers, freshmen, and visiting students. Portions of NSO programming are tailored for these different cohorts, but the majority of programming is tied to helping new students get to know each other and adapt to life on campus. Further, as soon as they start studying on campus, Crossover students will be able to connect with House members.

Info For New Students
Do King’s Crossover students get placed in a House, and what does that relationship with the House look like for online Crossover students?

Yes, King’s Crossover students are assigned to houses as “affiliate house members.” Affiliate house members virtually attend Drama Competition with their House in the fall, and attend Interregnum in-person with their House in the spring. Other than these specific involvement events, Crossover students receive a coach throughout their time online, and this coach also serves as the Advisor for the student’s assigned House.

House System
How is King’s Crossover organized in terms of courses and assignments? Is the full array of on-campus classes available?

King’s Crossover courses are mostly asynchronous (courses that are taken through our Learning Management System, Schoology), at the pace and time that best works for each student. Classmates in these online courses are other Crossover students and some on-campus students. The array of online Crossover courses are designed from our core curriculum of Politics, Philosophy, and Economics. These are fundamentals of a King’s education and are required for all King’s students in their first two years at King’s, whether online or on-campus. As more King’s courses become available for Crossover students synchronously (courses that are taken at a specific time each week with a live professor), students may be eligible to take these courses instead of the asynchronous model. We have found the learning outcomes of the asynchronous and synchronous models to be the same, though students may have a preference for one over the other.

Are there any other events aside from the required Interregnum week in the spring that Crossover students need to attend?

Interregnum is the only required on-campus event for online Crossover students. As far as required virtual events go, Crossover students are also required to attend a cohort check-in twice per semester to focus on advising, career development, etc. Additionally, there are many optional virtual events for Crossover students in which to participate, such as a monthly Bible study for Crossover students led by student director of spiritual life, the weekly and virtual Public Reading of Scripture and Community Updates on-campus, and one virtual coffee meeting each month with a Crossover Coach (the student’s House Advisor).
