APPLYING FOR ADMISSIONS TO THE BACHELOR OF ARTS IN BIBLICAL AND THEOLOGICAL STUDIES PROGRAM

This degree program is offered in cooperation with The Salvation Army’s College for Officer Training (CFOT) and is restricted to those who have been accepted by The Salvation Army in the Canada and Bermuda Territory as cadets. While the completion of the degree requirements is the primary concern of Booth University College, The Salvation Army alone makes decisions about the suitability of a cadet for commissioning and ordination. If a student ceases to be a cadet for Salvation Army officership, that student will not be allowed to continue in this program. However, with the permission of Booth University College’s Academic Dean, the student may be allowed to transfer into another program offered by Booth College.

During the portion of the program that is taken at CFOT, students prepare for commissioning and ordination as Salvation Army officers. After the completion of the CFOT component of the program, students finish their degree requirements directly with Booth University College. Please contact the School for Continuing Studies’ Degree Program Coordinator.

OCCASIONAL STUDENTS

If you’re interested in taking a course or two for personal growth or just to explore our offerings before committing to a full program, you can apply as an occasional student.
