How Can You Receive Your Graduate Degree Earlier Than Expected?

It's simple! Students who have graduated from Baptist colleges and universities (or other schools of similar theological background) may qualify to receive up to 27 hours of their MDiv, or up to 9 hours of their MA or MTS, through our Accelerated Program, regardless of specialization. In order to qualify, students must submit their undergraduate transcripts for evaluation along with a graded research paper demonstrating competency in the areas of research and writing. Current or prospective students who have already submitted their official undergraduate transcripts to the NOBTS Registrar's office may send an email to in order to request a copy of their undergraduate transcript be sent to the Director of the Accelerated Program. Students who have access to their unofficial transcripts online may email a copy to the Accelerated Program office directly.
