What is my admission process?
- Apply to BJU — Apply 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.
- Submit Required Documents
- Once you have finished your application, your admission counselor will connect with you and direct you to your next steps.
- Confirm Your Reservation
- The reservation deposit for international students is $250 and is applied to your semester’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.
If you’re planning to re-enroll as an international student, you should follow the international student admission timeline and note the following differences:
- If you have already had your TOEFL scores sent to BJU, you will not need to have the scores sent again.
- A credential evaluation is only required if you have taken coursework at a foreign school since you were last enrolled at BJU.
- You will fill out a different financial information form which does not require prepayment of the year’s fees.
You don’t need to pay the $295 application fee, but you do need to pay a $50 refundable reservation fee when you submit your application.
