Applicants for admission to LIFT will be considered without regard to color, sex, national or ethnic origin. The applicant is assessed according to academic background and personal testimony for the Lord Jesus Christ. In considering applications, the applicant's complete transcript, recommendations and personal information are reviewed. If the applicant meets the required standards, the student will be admitted to LIFT on a semester-to-semester basis. A certificate or degree from LIFT is not an indication that LIFT is recommending the student for licensing or ordination. Each ecclesiastical denominational organization has its own set of guidelines for licensing and ordaining its ministers. Application must be made on the official form furnished by the Office of the Director of Records and Admissions. When the necessary information and fees have been received, the Admissions Committee (Chancellor, Vice President for Administration, Director of Records and Admission, Vice President for Academic Affairs and Academic Dean) will act on the application. The applicant will be notified of the decision of the Committee.
Acceptance to any certificate or degree program at LIFT will be granted only after assessment of the application; references and official transcripts (where required) have been made. The appropriate fee must accompany the application. Admission to a program will be granted only after an application to that program has been received and approved. APPLICATION PROCEDURES The applicant should carefully complete the application form and provide the following items: (a) application fee; (b) a statement of personal conversion to Christ, experience with the Lord, and service for Christ; (c) high school transcript and/or transcript(s) from all colleges and universities where the applicant has done undergraduate and/or higherlevel course work.

Special students must follow regular application procedures.

Students desiring to transfer to LIFT from other Bible institutes, colleges, and universities, must follow all the steps outlined above when applying for admission However, each course is individually evaluated before acceptance to ensure that it meets the requirements of similar offerings at LIFT. The decision to accept or reject transfer of credits rest solely with the college. For credits to be considered for transference, in addition to the high school record, the student should request the registrar of each college attended since high school graduation to send an official transcript (certified and sealed) of his/her college level work directly to the site he/she desires to attend. Once the registrar receives the certified transcript, he/she will forward it to the Dean who will work closely with the member of the appropriate department in making the final decision on transfer of credits. Only work completed with a "C" or better is transferable. The final decision on transferring credits will be made, put in writing, and sent to the registrar for inclusion in the student’s folder. The registrar will then give the student a timely response as to the acceptance/rejection of transfer of credits.
