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).

The cost for graduate diploma students is $225 per hour for tuition, meaning a 1.5-hour course is $337.50 or a 3-hour course is $675. 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 $400 per hour for master's students, there is no additional financial assistance available.
