Our curriculum emphasizes post-secondary study for the Bible, Theology, and selected General Education subjects, as well as experience ministry in a field education program.
Note: The application is self-managed. The applicant controls the gathering and submitting of all information and documentation necessary to complete the application. Listed below are the major steps involved in the application process and links to the associated documents or contacts.
- Choose a Program
Read carefully the information within this packet and choose a credentialing program that best fits your current qualifications, situation and aspiration. You are encouraged to attend our SBIC Close-Up event which is a presentation by our Recruitment Team where you can ask specific questions about the programs and the school.
Additional information for choosing a program:
- Request Information
Contact the admissions office and make a Request for Information on the specific program to which you would like to apply. This step also lets the recruitment office know that you are interested in possibly attending SBIC. The recruitment staff will then contact you and provide you with additional information and the application for admission. You may also download the application from the website.

- Complete and Submit Application
Fill out the application completely (all four items below). This includes the Statement of Faith & Ministry as well as applicable endorsements, recommendations and all other documentation. The application must be submitted with appropriate application fee and prior to the application deadline for the semester you are intending to start classes.
- Attend Orientation
All new students are required to attend an orientation prior to beginning classes. This orientation is intended to prepare the student for his or her tenure at Southern Bible. During the orientation, an entrance assessment will be administered for the purpose of ensuring proper program placement as well as to help evaluate the institute’s effectiveness in educating its students.
Note: The same assessment will be administered at the end of the student’s tenure prior to graduation in order to further measure increase in biblical knowledge as a result of completing an academic program.
