Davis College and the Word of Life Bible Institute (WOLBI) have enjoyed an ongoing relationship since WOLBI was founded in 1970. Both schools share a common mission, and many WOLBI students have transferred to Davis College to complete required coursework and receive degrees in their chosen ministry emphasis. Beginning in the fall of 2019, Davis College began offering its BRE degree program at the WOLBI campus in Pottersville, NY.

Davis College offers its programs online to accepted students. The College also maintains several adult instructional sites in New York City and Syracuse, New York. In addition, the College offers dual enrollment credit to several Christian high schools in New York State.


Davis College is a private, undergraduate, coeducational Bible College within the conservative evangelical tradition that fosters the spiritual, vocational, intellectual, and personal development of students for ministry. Its philoso­phy views the direct study of the Bible as the primary means to a success­ful life and ministry. Its three-year diploma, A.A.S. and B.R.E. degree programs provide an integration of Biblical, general, and concentration stud­ies. The one-year certificate programs focus primarily upon Biblical studies.

As a Bible College, the Bible is the major curriculum component and the integrating factor of all other courses. General education is essential to a balanced, broad-based undergraduate education that gives the student a basic understanding of the world in which they live and minister. Concentration studies develop the student’s competencies, skills, abilities, and knowledge needed for service and leadership within church-related ministries. In its entirety, the educational and practical experience of the College is designed to enable students to know the Word of God, to apply it to every aspect of life and to minister it effectively to the world. In sum­mary, Davis College provides students with the education and experience to develop a thoroughly biblical worldview and lifestyle.
