What you need to know to get started
Ready to explore how to get started? This page will show you what you need to apply and get accepted at The College @ WBS.
The College @ WBS is designed for passionate followers of Jesus who want to be prepared for a life of ministry. We take seriously both a commited relationship to Jesus and the academic capacity to learn well. The following criteria are what we use to evaluate applicants.
The Application Process
The application process at WBS is quick and easy. Here are your next steps.
Complete an application
The application takes 2-minutes to complete. An enrollment advisor will be in touch with you quickly to help you through the remaining steps.
Submit pastoral reference and spiritual testimony
We will contact you for the name, phone number, and email address for your pastor. You will also write a 250-500 word testimony that will serve as your writing sample.
Send official transcripts
If you have completed an associate’s degree, you only have to send that transcript. If you haven’t attended college yet, send us your high school transcript. If you have completed some college, then send us those transcripts.
Interview and acceptance
Once we have received all of your information, we will schedule an interview with you. We want to hear directly from you about where God is leading you and to see if The College @ WBS is a good fit. The interview is laid back and encouraging, so no need to be nervous! Once we have had a chance to interview you and review your information, you will receive notification of your acceptance.
If you have completed courses at another accredited institution, you may transfer them into The College @ WBS. The number of courses that will transfer depends on whether you have completed an associate’s degree and what kind of courses you have taken.
If you have completed an associate’s degree, then you will be able to transfer 60 credits into your program at The College @ WBS. You will only take third and fourth year courses at WBS. Your enrollment advisor will take care of this process for you once you have submitted your transcripts and been accepted.
If you have completed some credits at another college, we will evaluate your transcript to see what credits will transfer. We do our best to match your academic record with our program. However, some credits may not transfer due to the difference in the curriculum between schools.
Tuition and Scholarships
The College @ WBS was created as an affordable, high-quality alternative to expensive and unrealistic college options today. With low tuition and guaranteed scholarships, you can graduate debt free from The College @ WBS.
We charge $298 per credit. This is among the lowest tuition costs at private colleges in the nation. We’re committed to keeping your costs low while you receive a rigorous education.
Tuition Lock Guarantee
Most colleges will quote you one price when you start. But by the time you graduate you’re paying 15-30% more. Not here. If you stay consistently enrolled, we will lock your tuition rate where it is when you start.
100% Scholarship Rate
For students who start this coming semester are guaranteed a scholarship, which will significantly reduce the cost of attending. Our goal is to make sure you graduate debt free. The best way to do that is to save you money with scholarships!
