1. New students must complete their registration in person at the student orientation and registration. For the fall semester this will take place the last week in August and for the spring semester, the 2nd week in January. Exact dates will come with your acceptance letter and will also be posted on the student calendar.
2. If you have transfer credits from another Bible College or seminary college, the Registrar will meet with you to discuss which courses transfer for MBCS credit. Make sure we have received all transcripts (from your previous college(s)) prior to registration. Please note that as the College only offers a Biblical Studies curriculum, many secular college credits do not transfer.
3. During registration you will talk to an adviser who helps you sign up for the appropriate classes:
- Path Finder (for 1st year students)
- Associate Degree in Biblical Studies (2nd year students)
- 4 year degree in Biblical Studies
4. Next you will visit the Finance Office to pay for tuition & fees. In summary there are two payment methods:
- Pay-in-Full (10% tuition discount)
- Or, sign up for the monthly payment plan
5. The last step is that you will get a picture taken for the yearbook.
