Undergraduate Program Entrance Requirements


Entrance requirement for all undergraduate programs is a High School Diploma or General Education Diploma (GED).


Life Experience


Life experience is a valid educational medium.  Therefore, the students may apply for up to thirty (30) semester hours of Life Experience Credits.  The Life Experience Credit form must be filled out with the help of the Student Advisor and will be evaluated by the Academic Deanís office.  Life Experience Credits are subject to the usual tuition costs.


A maximum of nine (9) Life Experience Credit Hours may be awarded at the graduate level.  Should Life Experience Credits be awarded at the undergraduate level, none will be awarded at the graduate level.  No Life Experience Credits will be awarded at the post-graduate level.


Transfer Credits


Previously earned college credits will be evaluated for transfer to Covenant Bible Institute.  High school and college transcripts must be submitted in the application process.  Acceptable credits will be applied to the studentís program of study.  Since CBI is committed to the development of marketplace ministers, our transfer policy reflects high regard for previously earned Credit Hours.




Any course or program may be audited.  No examinations will be given or grades recorded for an audited course.  If a student does not require college credit, auditing may be the answer.  An audited course may not be submitted for credit at a later date.  The course tuition for the appropriate course credit must be paid and the course taken again, along with applicable examinations and course projects.
