Entrance Requirements

Personal Background
The requirements for admission to Faith include a definite knowledge of Christ as Savior, an honest desire to know and to do the Lord's will, a genuine concern for the lost, a teachable heart and mind, a commitment to the doctrinal position of the College, a willingness to abide by the standards of the College while a student, and a readiness to apply oneself intellectually. Because of the school's specialized training and the standards of its constituency, applications from divorced persons or those married to divorced persons will not be processed. Faith Baptist Bible College admits qualified students who are personally committed to faith in Jesus Christ, regardless of sex, race, color, national or ethnic origin, or physical handicap.

Academic Background
Students applying to Faith are to have completed a high school program consisting ideally of a minimum of 4 years of English, 3 years each of science and math, and 2 years of social studies. All students are expected to have an official high school transcript including their final cumulative GPA, class rank, and ACT/SAT scores. GED passing scores are acceptable as a substitute.

Home-Schooled Students
Faith welcomes applications from students who have been home-schooled. Such students must meet all admissions standards. Home-schooled students must validate the work they have completed by a verifiable transcript and/or an acceptable acknowledgement such as a diploma. A home-schooled student may be asked to complete either the GED or the ACT to substantiate his or her preparation for entrance into college level academic study.
