Admissions Policies

Non-Discrimination Policy

FBS will admit qualifying applicants within the context of its theological convictions and purpose statement regardless of race, color, age, national or ethnic origin, or disability.

Advanced Standing

Applicants may apply for advanced standing based on other work completed or proficiencies gained.  In the Master of Divinity program it may be possible to receive advanced standing for prior counseling training and the first year Greek and Hebrew courses. The FBS administration will either grant advanced standing credit, assign supplemental work before credit is granted, or require students to take the courses from FBS.

Transfer Credits

Applicants may transfer course credits taken at other graduate institutions. However, the seminary considers its courses essential for graduation and therefore will not grant credit for courses whose subjects bear minor resemblance of the requirements for a course in our curriculum. Under no circumstances can more than 40% of the program be given in transfer or advanced standing credits. Additionally, FBS will only grant transfer credit of previously earned graduate credits. Undergraduate credits will not be transferred. Applicants wishing to take courses at another seminary before enrolling at FBS should get advance approval to verify acceptance of those courses.

What requirements must I meet to be accepted?

We require students to have a bachelor's degree (those that do not may apply for a special exception) from an accredited institution. In addition, we expect all students to be actively participating in their local church. Finally, we expect that all students would be qualified to serve in their ministry context.
