Admissions Policies and Procedures

The admission of all students is made after careful evaluation of each applicant’s personal and academic qualifications. No applicant will be denied admission to Native American Bible College on the basis of race, color, gender, national, or ethnic origin. Native American Bible College does not discriminate against individuals with physical or mental disabilities who are otherwise eligible for admission to the college. Each applicant must complete an application packet which includes the following: application, health form, personal testimony, pastoral reference, academic reference, high school transcript or GED certificate, and any college transcripts. Dorm students are required to submit a medical form.

Applicants must show evidence of a Christian commitment, be in harmony with the doctrinal statement of NABC as printed on the What We Believe page, and be willing to abide by the student handbook. A favorable recommendation from an individual’s pastor (who has known the applicant at least one full year) is required.

Application Procedure

Freshmen – Includes first-time college freshmen and/or students who have not yet graduated from high school (even if you have earned college credit during high school). If you are applying as a freshman, you are encouraged to complete your Application for Admission during the fall semester of your senior year of high school.

Transfers – If you are applying as a transfer student, you are encouraged to complete the Application for Admission by November 1 for the Spring Semester. Fall applications are accepted on a rolling basis. Applicants are strongly encouraged to apply by the stated deadlines; however, applications will be considered after the recommended deadlines. Please note that late applications requesting on-campus housing will be subject to the availability of space on campus.

Homeschoolers – If you are a homeschooled student, you will be pleased to learn that Native American Bible College welcomes students from a homeschooling background. We have traditionally found homeschoolers to be high academic achievers with a mature faith.  The academic reference should be completed by an individual who has observed your academic and personal progress (i.e., a tutor or former teacher) or an employer. Academic recommendations should not be completed by a relative. Homeschooled students should complete the Application for Admission for consideration in admission to Native American Bible College.

International Students – Native American Bible College is not currently able to enroll international students. An international student is defined as any applicant who is not a legal U.S. resident

Re-Applicants – Former students (those who have not attended within one year) who wish to re-enroll at Native American Bible College must complete the Application of Re-admission. Applications may be obtained by contacting the Admissions Office. Re-applicants must be in good standing with the college, and receive approval from the Board of Administration. Native American Bible College is not obligated to admit a returning student.

Former students who attended another college while away from Native American Bible College must submit official transcripts from all colleges they have attended directly to the Admissions Office. Transcripts for courses currently in progress should be sent to the Admissions Office upon completion of the course(s).
