The prospective student is assessed according to academic background, moral behaviour and character, personal Christian testimony, and ministry graces. In the consideration process, the applicant's complete prior academic record, recommendations, plans for the future, and personal information are reviewed. If applicants meet the required standards in these areas, they are admitted to the University. The University does not discriminate on the basis of race, colour, national origin, age, or gender in admission to, treatment in, or employment in its programs and activities.
Applicants must have a high school diploma or equivalent, and achieve satisfactory grades in the following Academic or College preparatory level courses in grades 10, 11, or 12:
- 2 English credits
- 2 Math or Science credits
- 2 Social Studies credits (e.g. history, sociology, geography, civics, psychology)
Students without the necessary background or grades may be admitted on a conditional basis. The first semester for these students will be a qualifying semester.
Applicants are expected to be of high moral character and are therefore expected to be a minimum of six months from participation in tobacco products, non-prescription drug use, alcohol, pornography, inappropriate sexual relationships, gambling, and occult activities.
The mission of Kingswood University, as a single-focus institution, requires that an applicant possess natural skill and temperaments appropriate for ministry. The Admissions Committee looks at an applicant’s skills and abilities that lend themselves to full-time church and Parachurch vocations. In some cases, an applicant may be asked to complete additional testing to help in this evaluation.
