The spiritual requirements at the University have priority over any and all academic requirements. Because the University prepares its students for a spiritual ministry, it must seek certain spiritual qualities in prospective students. Therefore, each applicant is required to submit the following items:
- A statement of personal conversion and of Christian experience and service.
- A signed application form which indicates that the applicant
- is in agreement with the doctrinal position of the University, as found in the doctrinal statement of this catalog, and
- will abide cheerfully by the spirit and standards of the University. Applicants who are not in full agreement with the University’s doctrinal position may request Special Student status.
- The name and address of at least three persons who can testify to the applicant’s Christian or moral character and suitability for graduate study. Whenever possible, these should include the pastor of the applicant’s home church, the dean or faculty advisor of the college which granted the applicant’s undergraduate degree, and an employer or teacher.
- When possible, a personal interview with the Director of Admissions with regard to personal, academic, and spiritual qualifications for advanced biblical study and for the ministry of the gospel. An interview is required to enter the degree program.
