VBC Bible Institute Entrance Requirements


Statement of Acceptance Standards

All students are required to give a testimony of having accepted Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior.  Each student is expected to conduct himself / herself in a manner that at no time will bring reproach upon our Savior or the school.



Student Nondiscriminatory Policy

VBC Bible Institute admits students of any race, color, national and ethnic origin to all the rights, privileges, and activities generally accorded or made available to students of the institute.  VBC Bible Institute does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national or ethnic origin in administration of its policies and other school administered programs.



A Word About Accreditation

If your sole purpose of needing an education is for the Gospel Ministry or a related field within Christian ministry, secular accreditation is not necessary or required.  All Christian churches accept quality Christian education regardless of which accreditation group (if any) the school is with.  If you are studying for other than ministry, to become a business administrator, engineer, lawyer, etc., make sure that the school at which you are going to study belongs to a regional accrediting association.  In secular education, regional accreditation is essential.  For education of those in Christian service, secular accreditation does little other than making the tuition beyond the reach of most ministers.



Transferred Credits

VBC Bible Institute reserves the right to allow, or not to allow, credits earned at other institutions for similar courses taken at that institution.  These hours may not exceed 30% of the required hours for graduation from VBC Bible Institute.




The institute has a set registration fee of $20.00 each semester.  The B.A. Programs are set at $10.00 per semester hour, Masters programs are set at $20.00 each semester hour.  Books for each semester are to be paid for when classes begin.  All students taking the B.A. Program by correspondence will be charged $30.00 per course for either cassette tapes or CD disks.



Course Grade Reports

While we expect all our students to put forth their very best effort and pass each course, we also realize that sometimes circumstances of life get in the way of proper study.  For this reason, all failing students will be given the opportunity to attempt to raise to a higher grade level on any lesson assignment where they request help.  At that time, individual procedures of counseling, assistance, and encouragement are provided.
