About the Application Process

Once your application is fully completed, it is sent to our admissions committee for assessment as to qualification and readiness. After the meeting you will be notified as to the result. If admitted, you may then apply for financial aid, including the Kevin & Barnetta Cosby Seminary Scholarship for ADOS. Even if all 10 scholarship slots are filled for a given year, there are other financial aid options that are available.

Once admitted, you will be provided with a login to our system and may register for upcoming courses. It is important to complete your application swiftly so your registration can occur before some courses are filled.

If you have any questions about the application, scholarships or our process, please contact Abby Sizemore, Director of Admissions, at abby.sizemore@bsk.edu.
