Non Traditional Students


Are you a mature, experienced person in ministry but never completed an undergraduate degree? You may be able to obtain your masters degree here at NBTS.

Under exceptional circumstances, a student without a baccalaureate degree may be admitted to the Master of Divinity (M.Div.) program as a non-traditional student.

Realizing that each non-traditional student has different credentials, please contact the Admissions office for information, transcript review, and aid in selecting the needed college courses. Contacting the office early in the process will allow the student to make the best choices for success in his or her seminary career. During this time before your admission to NBTS in addition to completing these college courses, we strongly recommend you be in contact with the ordaining body within your church and/or denomination about the possibility of ordination without a college degree.
