All students seeking a degree or a certificate program need to complete the standard application. Students who are not seeking a degree includes the following kinds of students:
- Students who intend to transfer credit from a few classes to another school
- Students who are taking or auditing courses for personal enrichment
Applicants who qualify for admission, but will take only a limited number of courses to fulfill requirements for other institutions, are classified as “special” students. A student must obtain verification from the school at which he or she is seeking a degree that courses taken at BMA Seminary will be applied to the relevant degree program.
Some courses are open to all, regardless of previous academic training. Students who enroll for credit in any course must declare the level at which they desire to receive credit at the time of enrollment.
BMA Seminary periodically offers free courses to the public. These are not for credit, but enable interested individuals to expand their knowledge of God and get a taste of seminary education.
