Below are the required forms from all applicants. Electronic versions of the recommendation form and spiritual autobiography are built-in to our application for admission.
1) Pastor/Church Recommendation Form
When filling out our online application, recommendation forms are emailed to those whom you’ve indicated should receive them. The links below are printable versions of those forms.
Family members may not complete a recommendation form. Recommenders must have known the applicant for a minimum of one year. If, for some reason, recommendations do not reflect the proper amount of diversity, the Admissions Office may request additional recommendations.
2) Spiritual Autobiography
When filling out the online application you’ll find a space to type your Spiritual Autobiography. The Spiritual Autobiography is a typed essay — no longer than 500 words — documenting your conversion, concisely articulating the gospel and telling your reasons for choosing Boyce College.
3) Official Transcripts
Transcription from all educational institutions is required. Official High School transcripts or General Equivalency Diploma (GED) test scores are necessary unless the applicant has more than 24 college hours. It is best for applicants to request that transcripts be sent directly from their school to the Southern Seminary Admissions Office. In no case will the seminary consider as official a transcript marked “Issued to Student.” For transfer students, we also require other college and/or university transcripts
4) Application Fee
A $40 non-refundable application fee is due to the admissions office before the student’s application packet can be processed.
5) ACT/SAT Scores
All applicants (including home-schooled students) are required to submit scores from either the Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT) or the American College Test (ACT). The SAT code for Boyce College is 3858 and the ACT code is 5522. Applicants who are 24 or older or have passed 15 hours from (a) a regionally accredited college or (b) a college with AABC accreditation, and have maintained at least a C average, are not required to submit these standardized test scores. (SAT and ACT scores are not used as a basis of admission to Boyce College but are used to help evaluate a student’s ability to do college level work.) Test scores can be waived for applicants 24 years or older.
