Credits from Advanced Diploma are transferable into the BA program. A student with an ESLCE score of 2.0 or better may choose to pursue the Advanced Diploma rather than the BA. Extension students are automatically registered into the Advanced Diploma program.
If a student is not accepted into the College, he/she may reapply the following year. For re-consideration, all deficiencies must be corrected, and a new recommendation letter from the local church must be submitted.
A transfer student is responsible to obtain an official transcript from his/her previous institution and submit it to the Registrar/director of admissions when applying to ABC. If the student is admitted into ABC and does not have an official transcript of previous academic work, he/she has one year in which to provide the transcript and vital information about the former institution if transfer credits are to be considered. After one year, transfer credits will not be accepted. It is the right of ABC to determine which credits will transfer into the program at ABC. No transfer credits are accepted during the student’s final 34 credits at ABC.
New Student Orientation
Approved students are required to attend New Student Orientation. This event is scheduled a few days before the first semester begins. The administration and faculty are introduced and the spiritual, academic and social life of the College is explained. Resident students will move into the dormitories at the time of New Student Orientation and begin adjusting to campus life.
Each student is assigned a faculty member who serves as his/her academic advisor. The student will meet individually with the advisor before each academic registration period and will be counseled in the selection of courses needed to fulfill all graduation requirements. The student is ultimately responsible for fulfilling all academic requirements for his/her academic program.
