I'd like to earn my masters degree from West Coast Baptist College.

There are two ways you can earn your master's degree, on campus or online. The application process for the master’s on campus program is the same as the undergraduate program for someone applying to come to campus. The application process for the master's online program for someone applying to earn their degree online is shorter and doesn't require parental information be filled out in the application.

Students applying for the master’s online program are required to provide college transcripts and two pastoral references. Students applying for the master’s on campus program are required to provide college transcripts, one pastor’s reference, one personal reference, along with a medical information form.

Non-Discriminatory Policy

West Coast Baptist College admits students of any race, color, national and ethnic origin to all the rights, privileges, programs, and activities generally accorded or made available to students at the school. It does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national and ethnic origin in administration of its educational policies, admissions policies, scholarship and loan programs, and athletic and other school-administered programs. However, only persons who have a testimony of biblical salvation and have a sincere desire to serve Christ are eligible for admission.

Reasonable Accommodation Policy

West Coast Baptist College will reasonably accommodate otherwise qualified individuals with a disability unless such accommodation would pose an undue hardship, or would result in a fundamental alteration in the nature of the service, program or activity, or in undue financial or administrative burdens. Changes in teaching techniques occur continually as instructors discover new ways to aid handicapped students. The term “reasonable accommodation” is used in its general sense in this policy to apply to employees, students and visitors. Student requests for reasonable accommodation should be addressed to the Vice President of Student Affairs.

A student must self-identify as an individual with a disability and provide appropriate diagnostic information that substantiates the disability. The office of Student Affairs will then assess the impact of the disability on the student’s academic program and record the required academic accommodations in a memo to the instructor. All diagnostic information is confidential and therefore memos can be sent only at the student’s request.

Individuals who have complaints alleging discriminations based upon a disability may file them through the Formal Student Complaint process.
