Admission to the Associate Program

In addition to the regulations concerning general admission, applicants for admission to the associate program must meet the following requirements:

Minimum Education

All applicants to the associate program must have graduated from high school or received a General Equivalence Diploma (GED). Students who have graduated from college with a baccalaureate degree will not be admitted to the associate program.

Provisional Admission

Exceptions to these published requirements must be approved by the faculty upon recommendation of the College Committee. In such cases, students will be granted provisional admission. During this period, students are subject to the same limitations as students under academic probation described under Disciplinary Regulations in this catalog. Provisional admission will be removed after a student completes 15 semester hours at the College and keeps a grade point average of at least a C (2.0 on a 4.0 scale).

ACT/SAT Scores

Applicants are required to submit scores from either the Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT) or the American College Test (ACT). The SAT code for Mid-America Baptist Theological Seminary is 7039 and the ACT code is 3934. Applicants who are 24 or older or have passed 15 hours from (a) a regionally accredited college or (b) a college with AABC accreditation and have maintained at least a C average are not required to submit these standardized test scores.

SAT and ACT scores are used as a basis of admission and are also used to help evaluate a student’s ability to do college level work. Normally, an ACT score of 18 and/or an SAT score of 900 is required for admission. Provisional admission is granted in certain cases for scores below the norm.
