The intersection of faith and learning within Christian colleges and universities is critical to the overall mission and ethos of these higher education institutions, as these concepts form their foundation. This study examines student perceptions of faith integration in online classrooms verses onsite classrooms. The students' experiences were evaluated through a survey instrument focused on faith integration within the context of the curriculum and faith integration within the context of faculty as spiritual mentors. As the proliferation of Christian higher education with regards to the adult education demographic continues to grow, the leaders of such organizations can benefit from pertinent data. The results of this study provide a guiding tool to ensure faith integration is transpiring, no matter the modality of learning.
