Applying to Bethany

Applicants who wish to attend Bethany should be Christians who have made a meaningful commitment to Jesus Christ and who have a desire to deepen their relationship with God. Bethany admits students of any national or ethnic origin.

To receive a diploma from Bethany, students must have a high school diploma or General Equivalency Diploma (GED). Those without a diploma or GED may be considered for admission as auditing students. Auditing students taking classes on a non-credit basis must be accepted to Bethany through the regular application process. Audited classes will appear on a student’s transcript, but no credit will be given. Audited class fees are the same as classes taken for credit.

How to Apply

To be admitted as a student, an applicant must complete and submit Bethany’s application forms, available through the Admissions Office.


Applicants will be notified by letter when accepted. All students are accepted for a probationary period of one quarter. Bethany reserves the right to reject any application for reasons it deems sufficient.

Prospective Students

We encourage prospective students to visit Bethany to attend classes and chapel, either during our scheduled Preview Days or for a personal visit. Overnight accommodations can be arranged. Please contact the Admissions Office for more information or to schedule a visit.

The maximum number of credits that may be transferred into the Biblical Studies Program is 60 quarter credits; the maximum number of credits that may be transferred into the Advanced Biblical Studies Program is 120 quarter credits.
