Admission to TBS degree programs is at the discretion of the TBS Admissions Team, based on their review of the information provided. Upon receipt and review of all application materials requested, the TBS Admissions Team generally makes a determination of “Accepted Applicant” or “Denied Applicant” and follows up with both a letter sent by postal mail and e-mail. Acceptances additionally typically include information about enrollment procedures, financial policies, and upcoming dates, deadlines, and events. General criteria considered as minimum requirements include:
- Evidence of a clear calling of the applicant to a life of personal and professional ministry as as servant of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
- Applicant agreement and acceptance of The Bible Seminary's Core Values and Ethos and Doctrinal Statements.
- For Master's programs, an accredited baccalaureate degree with a minimum of 2.5 unweighted grade point average on a 4.0 point scale. However, students who have not yet completed a Bachelor's degree may be eligible to enroll in our Dual Degree Completion program.
- If English is not a student's primary language, a TOEFL iBT score of at least 79, TOEFL CBT of 213, or TOEFL PBT of 550, or 7.0 IELTS is required.
The TBS Admissions Team is afforded discretion to grant exceptions to degree, grade point, and English language criteria, within the bounds of applicable accreditation standards. Also, TBS is NOT currently a Student Exchange and Visitor Program (SEVP) approved school and cannot accept applicants in the U.S. under an F-1 Student Visa.
