International Admissions Checklist

  • ApplicationApply here.
  • Recommendation Forms – Recommenders must be unrelated to you. You can send them the form by going to this link or just send us their email or cell number and we can send them the form.
    • Pastoral Recommendation – We prefer a recommendation from your current pastor. However, if you are a pastor, your pastor is a relative, or there is some other barrier you can request it from another spiritual leader in your life (pastor’s wife, youth pastor, small group leader, deacon or elder in the church, board member, etc.).
    • Teacher/Professional Recommendation – If you have recently been in school, we prefer a recommendation from a former teacher. However, if you are homeschooled or have been out of school for a while a reference from a work supervisor or some other professional is fine.
  • Transcripts – If your education is from outside the United States send a clear scan of your transcripts to enrollment@gbs.edu. You will need to bring the official transcripts with you when you come to campus. High school transcripts can be waived if a student provides official college transcripts with 24+ transferable hours. If you haven’t yet graduated, just wait to send your transcripts until after graduation.
    • Some transcripts may need to be translated and evaluated by WES.org. We will notify you if this is the case.
  • English Proficiency – International students are required to get satisfactory scores on either the SAT (Evidence-Based Reading and Writing), TOEFL, IELTS, or Duolingo. If the student attended an English high school, college, or lives in a country that has English as the primary language there is a possibility that this requirement may be waived.
