Academic FAQ

What are the specific requirements for entrance into a program at EBC?

EBC has implemented a one year general track program for all incoming first year students. This allows students the opportunity to explore their gifts, and interests within our context. In order to applyto EBC students must have a High school graduation diploma (OSSD in Ontario, or its equivalent from another province or country) with a minimum average of 60%. Required courses include ENG4U, or ENG4M or ENG4C. Applicants not meeting these requirements may be considered for admission under other categories. Please contact the Admissions Office for more details.

Can I transfer any of my credits to another college or university?

Because EBC is accredited by the Associate for Biblical Higher Education (ABHE), you can transfer credits from EBC to any other ABHE college in North America . Many of EBC's credits will also transfer to Christian liberal arts colleges and many EBC grads have been able to transfer course credits to various community colleges and universities.

Could you tell me more about your Field Education program?

We believe that practical ministry experience is a vital component of Bible College education. Every program at EBC has a Field Education component and a designated number of Field Ed. credits to be earned as part of the program. Field Ed. is an opportunity for students to receive hands on training with experienced mentors in a variety of settings. Each year, EBC hosts a Field Education Fair, which provides a number of potential Field Education placements.  A required first semester course (Field Education and Ministry Preparation) familiarizes new students with Field Education policies and opportunities. Check out a list of our frequently asked questions here.

Are professors easily accessible and approachable?

EBC's professors are among our greatest assets. They are always willing to chat with you, about everything from your course work to your personal life. We encourage you to take the time to get to know your professors, inside and outside of the classroom. Most faculty hold office hours in the Education Centre.
