We at the Evangelical Bible Seminary desire to offer the best Christian curriculum we can to our students. Therefore, the classes and titles may change, but we are confident that the overall content of the material will cover the subject matter needed for a well-rounded degree program. Practical experience credits may be substituted for some courses, subject to review and approval of Officers of Administration, on an individual basis.
Transfer of credits to another institution is always at the discretion of the receiving institution. Even among fully accredited schools that are recognized by the federal government, transfer of credits is never guaranteed. In most instances, transferring credits from similar programs is the most effective way for credits to be accepted. Most Transworld accredited schools and NACE accredited schools will accept transfer credits. Transferring credits to E.B.C.S. FROM other institutions: Fees apply for transferring credits to E.B.C.S. from other recognized institutions. See page 16 for more information. All courses for which the student has received credits and maintained a passing grade at the granting institution will be transferred as long as the course of study aligns with a similar course and degree program at E.B.C.S. The evaluation of credits, accepted or rejected, is solely at the discretion of the E.B.C.S. Administrator. Most Transworld accredited schools and NACE accredited schools will be accepted as transfer credits. Transferring credits from E.B.C.S. Extension School Programs: All credits from E.B.C.S. Affiliate Schools are transferrable through the Bachelor level for full value. Transfer fees may apply.
E.B.C.S. accepts Christian students of any race. Students must have a high school diploma or its equivalent. They must be of good moral Christian character, and have the abilities capable of being trained and developed to fit their chosen field of Christian Service. You may complete your theological training, and prepare for the ministry as a Pastor, Evangelist, Teacher, Missionary, etc. You may consolidate your accumulated earned credits from various Bible schools, colleges, or secular colleges.

If you are seeking life experience credits for ministry work, please submit a current ministry resume as well. Students will receive an Academic Projection and a list of Classes Required for their degree.
All students must pay a $35 registration fee per semester and a one-time $50 application fee. The tuition fee is $55.00 per semester hour, in addition to textbook and materials fees.
