What is my admission process?

  1. Apply to BJUApply Now
    • You should apply at least 6 months before you intend to enroll. It takes 6 months on average from the time of the first inquiry until the student secures an F-1 visa.
    • Be prepared to include your personal profession of faith and two recommendations.
  2. Submit Required Documents
    • Once you have finished your application, your admission counselor will connect with you and direct you to your next steps.
  3. Confirm Your Reservation
    • The reservation deposit for international students is $250 and is applied to your first month’s tuition and fees. The reservation deposit is designed to be a commitment deposit and is refundable if you decide not to attend BJU prior to your official notification of admittance. After you are admitted, the deposit cannot be refunded.
