FAQ’s and Forms
Is there an application deadline?
MBC has no final application deadline. We do set priority application dates of June 15th for the Fall semester and November 15th for the Spring semester. Submitting your application before the priority date gives you priority for enrollment in courses and for living in our apartments. We encourage you to get your application in early, but if God is moving you toward MBC at the last minute, please go ahead and apply!
How do I send in my transcripts?
Official high school and/or college transcripts must be sent directly from the applicant’s high school/college to MBC, at his or her request. Transcripts must be presented from any and all colleges whether or not credit was earned. High school transcripts are not required for applicants who have earned 12 or more college credits.

Home School Students
Homeschooled students are welcomed at Montana Bible College. MBC recognizes that transcripts from homeschoolers may vary widely from one family to another. However, all homeschool transcripts must meet certain university standards to facilitate an admission decision and academic placement should the applicant be admitted. Homeschooling records should indicate the courses completed; the credits, units, or hours associated with each course; and a letter or numerical grade indicating the student’s level of performance in that subject area for that year. Courses or subjects reflected on the transcript should be organized by grade level (9 through 12) and date, and the transcript should be signed and dated by the preparer.
OPE ID Number: 0414300
Transfer students are required to fulfill the same criteria as entering freshmen, except that high school transcripts are not required if the applicant has earned at least 12 semester hours of college-transferable credit. A minimum grade point average of 2.0 is expected on all course work.
When will I know if I'm accepted?
Notification of Acceptance
When the admissions director receives all the necessary application materials, the admissions committee will review the applicant’s file. If approved, the applicant will be notified by mail. An Enrollment Agreement and Housing Application form will be sent at that time. This form provides an opportunity for accepted students to declare their intention to enroll at MBC. Accompanying this form will be a Health Information Form. In compliance with Montana State law, immunization records must be on file for all students taking four or more credits. Therefore, MBC requires each incoming student to provide the admissions office with his/her complete immunization records. In addition, we encourage all first-time students to obtain a physical examination before coming to school.
Applicants to Montana Bible College may be admitted on a probationary basis for the following reasons:
- Applicants who have not demonstrated the equivalency of a high school education by diploma or GED test score or whose high school GPA or undergraduate GPA is below a “C” average (2.0) may be accepted on probationary status for the first semester. At the completion of that semester, the student’s academic performance will be evaluated and he or she will be recommended for full acceptance, continued probation, or dismissal. A student granted continued probation for an additional semester will again be evaluated at the completion of that semester and be recommended for full acceptance or dismissal. Continued probation will not be granted for more than one semester.
- Applicants who have been dropped from enrollment at a previous institution for academic or behavioral reasons may be accepted on probationary status for the first semester. At the completion of that semester, the student will be evaluated and recommended for full acceptance, continued probation, or dismissal. A student granted continued probation for an additional semester will again be evaluated at the completion of that semester and be recommended for full acceptance or dismissal. Continued probation will not be granted for more than one semester.
What happens after I'm accepted? (Required Deposits)
A $150 enrollment deposit is required for all entering full-time students to ensure that space is reserved for the student. This one-time charge is required whether the student lives on campus or off campus and is applied toward the student’s tuition.
A $250 housing deposit is also required with the Enrollment Agreement and Housing Application for those students who will live in the residence halls. This deposit is held while the student lives in MBC housing and is refundable once the student leaves. However, all outstanding charges, fines, damages, and/or miscellaneous fees will be deducted from the deposit before a refund is rendered. Students can expect to receive a refund four to six weeks after the semester ends.
