Applications for GHBC are divided into two separate categories: Non-Degree-Seeking Students and Degree-Seeking Students.

These are students who do not intend to complete a program of study but desire to take classes for credit in order to satisfy requirements at another institute, satisfy mission board requirements, or personal biblical education.

Non-degree applicants should complete the Non-Degree application for admission. These students are not required to submit high school diploma/GED certificate, college transcripts, or references.

Non-degree-seeking students may change to a degree or certificate program by submitting a regular application along with all forms and transcripts for admission to the institute as a Degree-seeking student.

If an applicant does not meet the minimum requirements for admission in a particular program:

C. Applicant will be required to take some additional courses

If any course that we require has already been completed in an Accredited Bible College, we will allow the student to be exempt from taking that course with an academic grade of “C” or better.
