Application for Undergraduate Program

Bethany accepts applications for admission from candidates who feel they would benefit from and contribute to a Bethany education. Bethany College is a proud member of the Common Application. Prospective students can submit their applications in the following ways: through the Common Application, by paper application, or through our online application on the Bethany College website at https://www .bethanywv .edu/admissions-aid/apply/. There is not an application fee for any of the applications. Bethany College has the right to refuse or revoke the admission of a prospective or current student due to a criminal background.

Admission is based on a careful review of all credentials presented by the candidate. The Center for Enrollment accepts candidates it considers qualified among those applying. The meeting of minimum standards does not in itself assure admission. Acceptance is contingent upon a candidate’s successful completion of secondary school.

The College seeks students who have prepared themselves for a liberal arts curriculum by taking at least 15 units of college-preparatory work. Although the College does not absolutely prescribe how these units should be distributed, it encourages a minimum of four years of English, three years of mathematics, three years of science, three years of social science, and two years of a foreign language. For students who have developed individual curricula, have been homeschooled, or are involved in experimental honors programs, the Center for Enrollment makes special evaluations.
