It is our purpose to enroll those students who are academically and spiritually qualified to pursue a thorough course of study and afterwards render effective Christian service. Enrollment to ETS is limited to those who testify their salvation and indicate their call and commitment.
Admission requirements are designed to ensure that each student who enters the Seminary program has the capacity to pursue his work successfully. The applicant’s Bible College/University program and grades, tested abilities, personality traits, and Christian commitment are given priority in determining admission.
Wives of the married students may audit (for no charge) or take selected courses for credit by enrolling in any of the degree programs.
ETS is not authorized by the government of India to issue student visas to foreign students. However, we request that foreign students who are interested in joining ETS contact the registrar to discuss the possibility of alternative arrangements.
