Once a student has received an acceptance letter into LWBC to start their academic journey with us, the VP will provide the student with an Academic Plan that will detail which Academic Program the student will qualifies for and will give a roadmap designed to get the student to the complete the program that they wish with us at LWBC. It is to be understood that this application is not for the specified program but for the college admission. Each program has its own admissions and enrollment requirements that are to be met before enrolling in the program.
For information on general admissions into the college and acceptance please visit the College Admissions tab in the Admissions section of the website.
The programs mentioned above are only for the enrollment of accepted students into Living Word Bible College. In no moment may an individual enroll for the program without having an LWBC application in their student file and an acceptance decision attached to that application. No Enrollment Application will be accepted or even be considered should there be no acceptance decision from LWBC.
The pograms require students to fill out an enrollment application into the program officially enstating their enrollement into the Academic Program they have been accepted into at LWBC. The enrollment application allows for program coordinators to ensure that the student has met the preliminary requirements that are required to be fulfilled before being enrolled in the program. Should the student be denied, they can apply the Enrollement Application Fee toward another application into a different program that they do qualify for.
Student must submit a Program Enrollment Application at the start of every Academic Year in attendance at ITT. The Program Enrollment Application Deadline for every Academic Year is the last Monday in September, after the last Monday in September any College Acceptances would be placed into the following Academic Year's CoHort.
Full Time Student Enrollment:
If the student plans and commits to taking a 10 consecutive courses then the student's enrollement application will list them as a full-time student and would there for only be required to submit one enrollement application form every 10-months (every academic year).
Part Time Student Enrollment:
If the student does not apply for full time enrollment, they would be categorized as a part time student. Part time students are required to submit a Program Enrollment Application after every completion of 2 courses. This therefore means that for Part Time Students the Program Enrollment Application submitted is only valid for enrollment in 2 courses.
For ASM, students are to submit one Program Enrollment Application for each program they are applying to. For instance, our Certification in Christian Missions is a 2-year program - only one Program Enrollment Application will be required for the program.
Students must also adhere to ALL the policies and regulations in the College as well as the specified rules and regulations that is individual to the academic programs offered. All rules and regulations are detailed in the Constitution. Students can also access the policies online.

The Preliminary Requirement for ITT is the completion of our preliminary phase to the phased learning model known officially as Pre-Phase. Upon being accepted into LWBC - the student is automatically accepted into the Pre-Phase as it is the College's Core Foundational Studies.
Students at ITT can advance from Pre-Phase at the start of their enrollment and automatically begin at Phase One - only under the advisement of the VP as it will be detailed in the student's Academic Plan after the interview with the student is conducted.
Prospective students of the LWBC's TTS must be graduates of Living Word Bible College’s Institute of Theology.
This ensures that pre-requisite courses for the Degree Program have been met and students are successfully prepared to pursue a degree in Christian Theology. And this therefore means that this program is only offered to prospective students who hold certification in Theological Studies.
Students of other Biblical Certification Programs are encouraged to apply; however, will only be accepted under the discretion of the Presidents.
In the event that a student has attended a different Certification Program other than our own – they must present official records (Certificate of Completion and the Institution’s Transcript).
Failure to do so will result in the student needing to take LWBC’s Certification Program. Students may submit unofficial transcripts for a faster acceptance response, however an official transcript is required upon enrollment. It is also to be noted that if the Presidents do not approve the institution the student will be placed in ITT.
Prospective students of the LWBC's ASM must be graduates of Living Word Bible College’s Institute of Theology. Ensuring that they have received proper instruction in the Word of God and preparation to advance in ministerial preparation.
Students who are licensed or ordained clergy can apply to the program and be accepted. However if they have not received certification the VP will coordinate a plan with them to ensure they get certified and complete their vocational program as fast and efficiently as possible.
Prospective students must detail and reflect on how they expect to grow and enhance their knowledge with us at LWBC.
