Mineola Bible Institute and Seminary (MBIS) admit students of any race, color, national or ethnic origin. All courses will be presented in English only. The application should be completed and returned with a check or money order made payable to Mineola Bible Institute and Seminary.

Each application will be evaluated by the Admissions Board.

Applicants should be at least 16 years old to enter the degree program.


An official transcript should be submitted from the appropriate school if a student desires credit to be granted toward a diploma in Theology. A copy of other degrees or diplomas will be sufficient. Credit will be granted when an evaluation is complete. We reserve the right of refusal to transfer credit for any course that we feel to be nonapplicable to the student’s course of study in Theology. All students must complete at least 24 hours at MBIS in order to obtain their degree.

Life experience Credit

Life experience credit will be granted where appropriate. A complete packet must be requested and submitted giving documented proof (certificates, etc.) for credit desired. Credits will be given for the number of years in the ministry, with a maximum of 20 credits for 20 years in the ministry. Packets should be typed and submitted with the application. There is a $25 evaluation fee for this service. Please allow approximately 1 week for an evaluation.


Withdrawal must be done by submitting a formal letter to MBIS stating the reason for the withdrawal.


All Transcripts from other Colleges or Institutes must show the number of courses taken, grades, and time of enrollment, official seal, official signatures, and addresses and phone numbers for verification. Students must provide these transcripts; it is not the responsibility of MBIS to obtain them for the student. Do not send applications and transcripts to us by e-mail; please mail them to us for our review.
