Alabama Church Schools:

Please familiarize yourself with the laws before joining any school.

See the applicable law here:

Some schools require much more than the law does. It is perfectly legal for them to do so - a church school may set whatever requirements it so chooses. It is also perfectly legal for you to choose your school based on YOUR wants and needs for requirements. Some people are very happy with strict regulations and some prefer much more of a "hands-off" administration.
Decide what level YOU are comfortable with before signing with any school.
Please note that a school's inclusion in this list does not imply endorsement by NAHE.
