Frequently Asked Questions

What is Impact 360 Residency

Impact 360 Residency equips a small cohort of leaders to live, learn, and work at Impact 360 Institute for two years. These young professionals launch into their calling with a Masters (M.A.) in Leadership*, a deepened biblical worldview, a foundation of leadership, and a heart to serve, no matter their specific calling.

*Master’s degree offered in relationship with North Greenville University. NGU is accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges.

What is the total expense for the Residency?
The Residency is a paid experience. Residents are compensated for their part-time residency role as a member of the Impact 360 Institute team, which is worth approximately $24,000 ($12,000 annually for two years). Covered expenses include program-related travel and ground costs, housing (including all major utilities), and laundry facilities. Many applicants could qualify for a lower tuition schedule depending on the quality of their application and interviews.
Impact 360 Institute deeply invests in each Resident. The only costs associated with the experience are tuition and books for the master’s degree. This will not exceed $2,750 per semester or $11,000 for the entire 36 credit hour M.A. in Leadership.


What master’s degree is offered in the Impact 360 Residency?

Residents will earn an M.A. in Leadership through North Greenville University with a concentration in either Spiritual Formation or Servant Leadership.

The program is full-time, in-person, and includes required employment as a resident.

Our partner, North Greenville University, is accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges to award baccalaureate, master’s, and doctoral degrees.

Is there a GPA requirement?

Yes, we require a 3.0 undergraduate GPA for applying students.

Is there a deadline the Impact 360 Residency application?

Spaces for Impact 360 Residency 2024-2026 are very limited. Because we operate on rolling enrollment, we encourage all candidates to apply by the following deadlines to be considered for a corresponding interview date.

Fall Application Deadlines: September 1 (Limited interview spots in October), October 1 (Limited interview spots in November),

Spring Application Deadlines: February 3, 2024 (Interviews will take place on February 22 and 23)

How many spots are available for the program?

There were 13 total Residency roles available in the 2023-2025 cohort. There are 8 total remaining.

Is there an age limit for students accepted into the program?

There is no age limit for who can take part in the Residency experience. However, it should be noted that our program is aimed at ministering to and coaching students who are recent college graduates, typically between the ages of 22 and 29.

Are international students able to participate in the Residency program?

Unfortunately, at this time, because of the United States’ policy for international students pursuing degrees in the US, we will not be able to admit any international students moving forward for the Impact 360 Residency experience. This is because the degree-granting institution is not located on the same campus as Impact 360 which doesn’t allow an F-1 visa to be supported.

Of course, we are hoping this will change and we will keep you updated if any new information is available.

Can an applicant be married and still participate in the Residency?

Yes! We regularly enroll students who are married.

Can a Resident have children and participate in the program?

Unfortunately, at this time we do not have facilities/housing that can accommodate more than a married couple at this time.

The program requires 12 hours of undergraduate biblical studies classes, would this exclude me from the program if I do not meet this requirement?

You would not be excluded. The reason for the requirement is that all Residents hit the ground running with intentional discipleship, and we want to do our due diligence in making sure everyone has a certain level of biblical training.

If our faculty were to determine that any Resident would benefit from additional training on Bible basics, Impact 360 will provide online coursework to be completed during the summer before the program begins.

What is the housing and meals situation and dining plan for the Residency?

Impact 360 Residency is a fully residential, 2-year paid-learning experience. Residents receive a private on-campus apartment or cottage duplex at no additional cost.
