Nondiscriminatory Policy

New Life Bible College and Seminary admits students of any race, color, national and ethnic origin to all the rights, privileges and activities generally accorded or made available to students of the school.  New Life Bible College and Seminary does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national or ethnic origin in administration of its policies, loan programs and other school administered programs.


Statement of Standards

All students are required to give a testimony of having accepted Jesus Christ as their Lord and Saviour.  Each student is expected to conduct himself/herself in a manner that at no time will bring reproach upon our Saviour or the school.


All students must be a working part of a local church.  Time spent in participation within the local church will be logged and turned into the College.  These hours are

figured into the studentís semester credit hours as Personal Ministry.  Godís Word demands that we be doers of the Word and not hearers (or students) only.




The purpose of New Life Bible College and Seminary is to provide education within the context of Christian values with emphasis on high academic standards and spiritual development.


In keeping the goals of the school, we will seek to provide the student with academic and spiritual pursuits.


1. Which will develop within the student a God-centered perspective by studying His revelation through creation, History and the rational ability of man.

2. Which will develop a discipline approach to life reflected in habits of study and an approach to all of life which will enable the student to bring to fruition his human capacity for intellectual and spiritual behavior.

3. Which will develop within a student a sensitivity to the needs of others and a sympathetic understanding of people and their problems and prepare him to make his maximum contribution to society.

4. Which will enable a student to appreciate work that is done and which will encourage him to fulfill every responsibility to the honor and glory of God.

5. Which will develop a Christ-centered commitment and character seeing the world as Godís vineyard and seeking to bring honor to the Lord Jesus Christ, which is the ultimate goal of this school.



What We Believe

We are a fundamental, evangelical Bible believing college; and we believe that the canonized King James Bible is the inerrant and infallible Word of God.  We accept that the Bible is Godís instruction manual for life and that it is written to all mankind.


It is our belief that God created the earth and the universe in six literal days and that Jesus Christ is the Son of God, born of a virgin.  We believe that He died on the cross at Calvary, but that He arose from the dead three days later and now sits at the right hand of God as our High Priest and intervenes on our behalf to the Father for our sins.  We further believe that He will be returning for us and that we shall reign in heaven for eternity with Him.  Finally, we believe that all nonbelievers will be sentenced to a burning hell for eternity.


Although accreditation is not necessary for a Christian College, we feel that high academic standards and ethics are.  After extensive research we are proud to announce that we have found what we consider to be the best available. 


New Life Bible College and Seminary sought and received full membership and accreditation from Southern Associatian of Christian Schools.


Refund Policy

Students may change or drop a program at anytime during the first three (3) weeks after notification of their acceptance into the College.  When a program is dropped or withdrawn from and no substitute is taken, the following refund policy will apply:

            Refund of tuition is as follows:

            A.    From 21-30 days from the date                        of enrollment:  80%

            B.     From 31-60 days from the date                        of enrollment:  60%

            C.     From 61-90 days from the date                        of enrollment - 40%

            D.    After 90 days from the date of                         enrollment - NONE

A student must notify the College in writing of the intention to withdraw.  The withdrawal date will be the date the notification is received by New Life Bible College and Seminary and this date will be used in calculating the amount of tuition refunded.
