Registration ProceduresNew students will register for classes during orientation week. Registration for the next semester's classes will commence two weeks before the end of the current semester. All currently enrolled students need to finalize registration by the end of the last week of the current semester.
New Student OrientationAll newly enrolled students are required to attend the New Student Orientation. International students should plan to arrive two weeks before term starts.
The Orientation lasts about a week during which time you will meet the faculty and staff, and be briefed on academic and student body life. Administrative procedure with regards to course registration, requests for absence from class, etc., will be dealt with.
Students will be required to undergo a compulsory profile assessment for which $50 is payable, and an individual follow-up sessions with the counsellor. This will help the faculty to understand the new student and help he or she prepare to be effective for ministry.
Student Protection SchemeBTS has adopted the Student Tuition Fee Insurance Scheme by NTUC Income Insurance. This is compulsory for all international students.
This scheme seeks to protect students' fees in case BTS becomes insolvent and is unable to continue operation. Students must bear the insurance cost which is capped at 3% of full tuition fees.
Student Grievance ProcedureSeminary policy grants to the administration and faculty of BTS the authority to develop and administer the processes for study and other issues related to student life. Students are expected to conform to the expectations and standards of performance and conduct. The same polity that establishes the governance of administrative and academic affairs, however, allows the student the means to seek recourse from what they consider to be unfair or unjust evaluation.
