Application forms are only held for 30 days and, if not followed
up with further submissions of forms or tests to the college,
they will be discarded for non-use at that time.

   ATTENTION- these instructions must be followed:
1. DO NOT use nicknames. Use only your legal name on all forms submitted to SLBC. Your academic file and all degrees issued will use the name you submit on this form.
2. Use proper capitalization of all information. Do not use all upper-case letters or all lower-case letters.
3. Your degree, when you earn it, will have your name spelled exactly as you have it spelled on your Application form.  Therefore, make sure you follow guidelines "1" and "2" exactly.
4. Do not use titles such as "Mr., Mrs., Pastor, Reverend, Bishop, etc." in the name fields because we file alphabetically.  Those titles are not allowed in your name as it is printed on your degree.  You may use "Jr." if your birth certificate and other legal documents show that as legally part of your name.  Otherwise, do not use it.
5. Do not use hyphenated last names (see "Exception") such as "Smith-Jones" because they cause filing problems. Choose which name you want to use, such as "Smith" or "Jones" and use it consistently in forms and other submissions to the college. We file alphabetically according to your last name.
Exception: If your name is hyphenated on your Birth Certificate, Social Security card, or other legal documentation, then you may hyphenate your name on the Application form. If you do so, you will be filed under the first letter of your hyphenated last name, and your degree, when you earn it, will have your name spelled with the hyphenation.
6. Do not use abbreviations when entering information on the form.

If you do not follow these guidelines then your Application may be rejected. If you do not follow these guidelines you will still receive an autoresponse welcome email telling you to continue; however, you will then receive notification that your application has been rejected and you will have to resubmit it following the guidelines exactly.

Make sure the information is accurate before submitting this form.

To prevent accidental submission of multiple forms, only one form per hour is
allowed from each IP.  Should you need to submit an Amended form with a
change of information, you will need to wait at least one hour to do so.

UNUSED APPLICATIONS: If you do not sign in and begin studying a course
within 30 days, then this Application will be discarded.  We know if you are
studying at least one of the courses because you will submit a Begin Sign In
form and, after meeting the minimum required attendance for the first lesson,
you will have submitted a lesson test.  Receipt of that test, pass or fail, will
verify that you have started your courses.  If we receive no correspondence
from you within 30 days of the date you submitted this Application, then we
will discard this Application because of non-use.

We have found it necessary to include the following second warning to all applicants:
If you do not use proper letter-case on all entries on this form, your Application will be rejected.
You are not allowed to use all upper-case letters, nor are you allowed to use all lower-case
letters on this form.  This includes when you input your name (the most common infraction)
and when inputting information into the various other fields- comments, other schooling, etc.
This is a college; therefore, college-level work is expected of all students at all times.

You were instructed, twice, to NOT use all upper-case or all lower-case letters when filling
out this form. 
By checking the "Yes" box you are verifying that you have followed
these instructions when filling out this form. You are also verifying that you
understand that if you did not follow those instructions your Application
will be rejected.  It is imperative that students follow all instructions
exactly.  The instructions are given to enable students to have
the best chance of receiving an education in the Word
of God.  Failure to follow instructions will negate
that possibility at the worst or, at the least,
make it extremely more difficult.

ATTENTION: There has been some misunderstanding concerning the scope and purpose of Salt Lake Baptist College / Salt Lake Bible College.  We are a Religion and Bible college and our degrees are meant for Church/Religion uses only.  Our only purpose is what is stated on the opening page of our website: "Training Men and Women In the Word of God".  We are not a secular college and our degrees are not meant for secular purposes; but, rather, are meant for Church/Religious purposes.

Thank you and may God bless as you study,
Dr. T. E. VanBuskirk

*I understand SLBC degrees are meant for Church/Religious purposes:


Notice to students from all countries!


Notice to all students:

Due to the extra labor necessary for recording and formatting of the Video Courses, it has become imperative that we have more staff to handle the work for those students attending SLBCV.

Administrative Fee: To facilitate this need we are instituting an Administrative/Production Fee of $50.00/month USD for all students from ALL countries. This fee will replace the Administrative Fee paid by the students of SLBC studying the non-video courses. This fee will enable us to obtain more staff and facilitate the needed expansion of our facilities to meet the needs of our expanding student body and the maintenance of the video college.

Free College Tuition and study materials and no charge for graduation: All of these will still be at no charge. Tuition will still be free and all study materials will still be available online at no charge to the students. Graduation and issuance of degrees will also remain free. In essence, the college will still be free. The Fee is only assessed to facilitate record-keeping for those students pursuing a degree and to help offset the cost of video production.

Waiver will be available: For those students who cannot afford this fee, a Waiver Form will be available for those who need an exemption. Financial hardship has to be established. We do not want anyone to drop out of the student body because of finances. If a student cannot afford the Administrative Fee they will be given an exemption. Our aim is to make sure everyone has an opportunity to gain an education in the Word of God. If you cannot afford the fee, please, submit a waiver form. However, if you can pay the fee without it being a financial burden, please do so in order to facilitate the administrative work for all students, both for those who can afford to pay the small fee and those who cannot. We ask that all students, whether they are subject to this fee or not, pray about it and then make their decision. The link to the Administrative Fee Waiver form is at the bottom of this page. Use that form to request a waiver from the fee for SLBCV. In the comments section state that this request is for a waiver for the $50 fee for SLBCV and list your reasons why it would be a financial hardship to pay the fee.

Required: When you submit your Application, please make your first payment and your administrative account will be set up automatically.
Payment by check or money order:
If you pay by check or money order in your own name, the account will be set up in the name on that check or money order.
2. If the check or money order is sent by someone else for you, please have them indicate that the payment is for you and have them include your full name on it and the month for which the payment is made. Alternatively, have them send a note with the check or money order indicating that it is for you and have them include (1) your full name, and (2) the month for which the fee is to be applied or that the payment is for one full year.
Payment through PayPal: If you submit a payment through PayPal via the links below, your account will go into effect automatically in the name on the paypal notice that is sent to us. You will also receive a receipt from PayPal indicating the amount of the payment and the date of the payment. A yearly option is also available which will save you 1 month's payment. If you pay $550 USD in one payment, it will cover the fees for 12 months. To access the PayPal donation page click HERE and specify the amount of your fee(s).

Monitoring Only students: Only students pursuing a college degree are subject to this fee. Those who are Monitoring Only, not for credit toward a degree, are not subject to this fee. We do not keep any records for Monitoring Only students; therefore, there is no administrative work and that makes them exempt from the Administrative Fee. However, if the student wishes to remit the fee, even if only on an intermittent basis, to help with the administrative work for those students who cannot afford it, we ask that the student would consider doing so. They can help the less fortunate through this very small sacrifice.

REFUND NOTE: All Fees are non-refundable.

Keeping track of Fee submissions: It is the student's responsibility to keep track of submission of their Fees. You will receive an automatic receipt from PayPal for each payment made through them. Those receipts are dated and contain the amount paid; therefore, if you keep them in a file you will always know what payments you have made. If you set up automatic payments through your bank or select the Recurring option when giving through PayPal, you won't have to be concerned about remembering when you made a payment. Your bank statements will show the date each payment was automatically sent out and the receipt from PayPal will show the amount and date when each automatic payment is made.

Thank you and may God bless you abundantly as you serve Him,
Dr. Van
