The graduate diploma in Biblical Languages covers both Biblical Hebrew and New Testament Greek in depth and allows students to gain facility in reading and interpreting the Hebrew Bible and Christian New Testament in their original languages. The program is available to current Master's students (in the form of a concentration in the Master of Divinity program), as well as to clergy and laypeople interested in in-depth study of the languages of the Bible. The courses for the graduate diploma in Biblical Languages are only available on the Tulsa campus (not online) and by video conference.

In Fall 2014, the cost for graduate diploma students is $275 per hour for tuition ($250 for members of Disciples and UCC congregations), meaning a 1.5-hour course is $412.50 or a 3-hour course is $825. Diploma students also pay $100 in fees for each semester that they are enrolled in the program. Books are a separate cost. Since the tuition rate for diploma students is already reduced from the usual $460 per hour for master's students, there is no additional financial assistance available.
