Requirements for Admission

Spiritual Qualifications

The applicant should give evidence of having trusted the Lord Jesus Christ as personal Savior and of commitment to Him as Lord of his or her life. A commendable Christian character is required (see Colossians 3:12-14; I Corinthians 6:9-20; Galatians 5:19-26). The applicant should exhibit a life of faithfulness to God and be in fellowship with a Biblically-sound local church. Applicants who have come to faith in Christ without the benefits of a Christian home are encouraged to live under the teaching and supervision of a church and pastor for at least a year before applying. Likewise, applicants who are recently free of enslaving sins, such as alcohol abuse or illegal drug use, are encouraged to be discipled by their local pastor and church for a year before applying. This relationship should be of such a nature as to enable the pastor to give an unqualified endorsement of the applicant.

Educational Qualifications

Applicants must have a standard diploma from an accredited high school (or its equivalent) or a certified grade report from the General Education Development (GED) test. In addition, applicants planning to enter MBC directly from high school or who have no college credit must submit a copy of their ACT or SAT test scores to the admissions office. Applicants whose high school grade average is below a 2.0 (C) may be accepted on a probationary basis, which will give them an opportunity to prove their academic ability. A limited number of applicants who do not meet the academic requirements, but whose background and experience qualify them to do studies at a college level, may likewise be accepted as probationary non-degree students.

Non-Discriminatory Policy

Montana Bible College does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, nationality, age, handicap, or ethnic origin in educational policies, admissions policies, scholarship programs, and other school-administered programs. The College makes every reasonable effort to meet the needs of those students with physical or mental disabilities which would hinder living or learning at this institution.
