The standards of scholarship and Christian faith at West Coast Baptist College require a review and evaluation of every applicant. All application forms must be filled out completely. Letters of recommendation, statement of salvation testimony, moral character, integrity, and academic records will be considered. No person shall be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be otherwise subjected to discrimination under any program or activity of the school because of race, color, sex, or national origin. However, only persons who have a testimony of biblical salvation and have a sincere desire to serve Christ are eligible for admission.
A prospective student may apply anytime. There is no application deadline date, but we encourage you to apply early to reserve your space. Please submit your application to the Admissions Office during your junior or senior year in high school. Once an application is received, it will be processed as soon as possible. No reservation is final until the prospective student completes all forms and receives an official letter of acceptance.
Each applicant must have the following to be considered for admission:
Transfer students are accepted based on the following criteria:
Students whose native tongue is not English must take the TOEFL examination and have their scores sent to the Admissions team at West Coast Baptist College. All international students should contact the Admissions team for information concerning the completion of the I-20 form.
International students must be able to establish their ability to pay tuition. Questions concerning any of these international student issues should be addressed to the Admissions team.
West Coast Baptist College strongly urges every student to be covered by some type of health insurance. Those who do not have health insurance may sign a waiver which releases the college of any liability.
All students with cars are required to provide proof of automobile insurance along with the proof of automobile registration and a valid driver’s license.
West Coast Baptist College admits students of any race, color, national and ethnic origin to all the rights, privileges, programs, and activities generally accorded or made available to students at the school. It does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national and ethnic origin in administration of its educational policies, admissions policies, scholarship and loan programs, and athletic and other school-administered programs. However, only persons who have a testimony of biblical salvation and have a sincere desire to serve Christ are eligible for admission.
West Coast Baptist College will reasonably accommodate otherwise qualified individuals with a disability unless such accommodation would pose an undue hardship, or would result in a fundamental alteration in the nature of the service, program or activity, or in undue financial or administrative burdens. Changes in teaching techniques occur continually as instructors discover new ways to aid handicapped students. The term “reasonable accommodation” is used in its general sense in this policy to apply to employees, students and visitors. Student requests for reasonable accommodation should be addressed to the Vice President of Student Affairs.
A student must self-identify as an individual with a disability and provide appropriate diagnostic information that substantiates the disability. The office of Student Affairs will then assess the impact of the disability on the student’s academic program and record the required academic accommodations in a memo to the instructor. All diagnostic information is confidential and therefore memos can be sent only at the student’s request.
Individuals who have complaints alleging discriminations based upon a disability may file them through the Formal Student Complaint process.
