Admission to Christian Life School of Theology is governed by procedures developed by the Christian Life School of Theology
Curriculum Committee. The prospective student is assessed according to academic background, moral character, personal testimony
for the Lord Jesus Christ, and a sincere desire to study the Scriptures. If the applicant meets the required standards in
these areas, he/she is admitted to the institution on a course-to-course basis. All male and female applicants for admission
are considered without regard to race, national, ethnic origin, and/or handicap. Questions on the application relating
to these items are for the purpose of preparing reports and have no bearing on the admission process.

Students Without a High School Diploma or Equivalent
The following individuals may apply for enrollment at the Institute if they satisfy the requirements of the “ability-to-benefit”
Typically, all individuals will have received a high school diploma or an equivalent before enrolling in the Institute.
The following individuals who have not completed high school may submit applications for enrollment if they satisfy the requirements
stated below. This provision is known as the “ability-to-benefit” provision. Its primary purpose is to ensure
that students are capable of completing courses of study and that they and the ministries they
serve will benefit from
their studies at the campus.
Under this provision, high school seniors may be approved as graded or audit classes. High school juniors may be approved
to audit courses. Other high school students may be approved to attend as observers. Other individuals 18 years of age or
older who have not completed high school or an equivalent may be approved to audit or take classes for grades. Procedures
for enrolling under this provision follow.
The Chancellor of this campus will sign and submit a letter to the Chancellor of Christian Life School of Theology along
with a completed Application for Admission (to include a separate check for the application fee) for the potential student.
The letter must state that the Chancellor believes the candidate is capable of completing Theology courses and maintaining
a “C” average grade. The letter must also explain how the candidate will benefit from the courses and how the
ministries the candidate is involved in will benefit. Finally, the letter should contain the Chancellor’s recommendation
that the student be admitted as a student.
These individuals, if accepted as graded students, will be admitted in an “academic probation” status for
15 semester hours. They must maintain a 2.0 grade point average (GPA) or higher through these 15 hours in order to have the
probationary status dropped.
Applications for individuals to be admitted under this provision require approval by the Chancellor of Christian Life
School of Theology in the national headquarters. If the application is not approved, the application fee will be returned
with a letter of explanation. If the
application is approved, a copy of the approval will be sent to the Chancellor.
