Admissions

Admissions Process for Baptist Missionary Association Theological Seminary
Admissions Process

Anyone desiring admission to the seminary must complete an application at least four weeks prior to registration. Students who have not attended in two years must reapply. Application for admission is through the BMA Seminary Dean’s Office.

Step 1: Read the Directions

Read the instructions for the application very carefully to ensure you fill it out properly.

Some students do not have to complete the standard application. Check to see if you can submit a Short Application

Want to submit a paper based application? You can find it here. You may also request a paper application by contacting the Admissions Office at (903) 586-2501.

Step 2: Complete the Online Application

The online application consists of six sections that must be completed before the application is submitted. Your information in the application is saved when entered. If you are unable to complete a portion of the application, you can return later to finish the application. All the information previously entered will remain available for you to review and modify. You must completely fill out each section of the application before progressing to the next one.

Step 3: Provide Documentation

Even in our highly electronic world, some things still need to be done on paper. Get all the requested documents together and send them in to the seminary to complete the application process.

Step 4: Wait for Confirmation of Acceptance

The Admissions Committee meets regularly to review applications. You will be notified by phone, e-mail, or letter when your application has been approved or denied.

Step 5: Register for Classes

Class schedules and registration forms are available on our website. As part of the registration process, you must call the Dean’s Office and speak to an adviser to discuss your class schedule.
