Academic Policies

Graduation Requirements

Your graduation requirements for Ethnos360 Bible Institute are the successful completion of the 60 core class credits plus 4 elective credits, and a minimum GPA of 2.0. The average number of credits needed each semester is 16. Fifteen of those 16 are core curriculum. You may choose the other credits from a list of elective courses. Upon successful completion of the program, you will receive an Associate Degree in Biblical Studies.


You are expected to attend all classes in which you are enrolled. Because unforeseen circumstances do arise and illness would prevent class attendance, the policy allows for up to two absences per credit hour in any course. Credit for the course may be lost due to excessive absences. The Academic Dean will make a determination on a case-by-case basis.

Academic Review

Each student’s academic progress is reviewed periodically. If your GPA drops lower than 2.00, you may be placed on academic probation. If sufficient improvement is not seen during the following semester, you may be asked to take a leave of absence. You may reapply in one year.

Academic Records

You may inquire at any time about your academic progress in a course. Grades are posted in Populi once a course has been finalized. Copies of all academic records are kept on file. A student transcript will be sent upon request at the cost of $10 per transcript.

Transfer Credits

You may receive transfer credits for courses taken at other schools if the course content is equal to what is offered at Ethnos360 Bible Institute. All Bible and missions courses will be considered for transfer.
