1. The Greek Bible College only accepts the applications of adults. Applications made by candidates of up to 21 years of age must have a signed approval from a parent or a legal guardian.
2. All interns must have a health certificate and complete the relevant forms supplied by the College Registrar.
3. Each candidate must affirm that he/she has embraced the Christian faith for a minimum of one year and must sign the College’s Statement of Faith.
4. Every candidate must give the names of three persons who are able to recommend him/her. It is preferable that at least one of them is a pastor, elder or minister who knows the candidate well. The other two who are called to verify the candidate’s Christian character must not be his/her relatives.
5. Every candidate must be a Lyceum graduate (or of an equivalent secondary education institution). Older candidates may be accepted by exception, without having graduated from a Lyceum, after approval by the Applications Committee. The number of such students accepted by the College is very restricted and regular status is achieved after a six month trial period. If their performance proves satisfactory, it is possible for them to continue as regular students, but they can only receive a certificate verifying the classes they have taken.
6. For the one-year diploma, the same requirements are in place. In order for a one-year graduate to continue on to the full-program, he/she must have the first year completed successfully with an average grade of 7/10.

A full-time student is one who is taking more than 12 hours of classes each week. A student taking less than 12 hours is considered “part-time” and they pay tuition for each class separately, instead of for the entire semester. However, the same criteria are in place for their registration and acceptance as for full-time students.
It is possible for someone to be accepted as an auditor provided sufficient capacity and after completion of an application form. Tuition for auditors is lower than those of regular students. Auditors are provided with written resources but they are not required to give tests and be graded. No accommodation is provided for auditors.
Visitors are allowed to sit in for various lectures, after they receive permission from the secretary and the respective lecturer. Visitors who wish to come to classes more regularly must enroll as a student or an auditor.
