Accredited Course Descriptions For College Credit

ZOLLIKON INSTITUTE / Courses / Accredited Courses

Accredited Courses

Zollikon Institute provides two different tracks of study: accredited courses and Professional Development courses.  Accredited courses are in partnership with Malone University and for those looking to pursue degree programs.

The accredited courses have the same expectations as all other Malone University courses and are taught by instructors who support the culture of the plain Anabaptist community.  Accredited courses may be taken for both high school and college credit through dual enrollment. 

Accredited courses consist of general education courses that fit into the building blocks of Malone University’s core curriculum and count towards all Malone degree programs. In addition to core general education courses, Zollikon is on track to offer full-time programs of study beginning Fall 2024. Watch our website for updates on these programs.

In any degree, 49% may be taken in person at the Zollikon site. The remaining 51% must be taken through Malone’s online programs which are accessible at the Zollikon site, or on Malone’s main campus.

If course costs are a concern for you, financial assistance and scholarships may be available. Click here to see more!
