Citizenship/Residency Requirement

Applicants to Baptist University must comply with the citizenship/residency requirements. Applicants must either be a United States citizen or a Permanent Resident. Evidence of English proficiency is a mandatory part of the application process. All applicants whose native tongue is not English will be required to submit a TOEFL score as part of their admissions requirement. For applicants whose native tongue is not English and who have graduated from a U.S. high school, the TOEFL will not be required.


To confirm the countries whose native tongue is English, the following website will be used by Baptist University admissions officers to determine native tongue. Click on the link; select the appropriate country; then select people and society. 

If an applicant has extenuating circumstances regarding this requirement, a request for review must be submitted to the Admissions Office.


The Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) measures the ability of students whose native tongue is not English as it is spoken, written, and heard in college/university settings. Students who have TOEFL scores over two years old will be required to submit new scores. The TOEFL is provided by the Educational Testing Service (ETS).

Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever admirable –if anything is excellent or praiseworthy think about such things.
