The Cameroon Baptist Theological Seminary looks for students who are growing in grace and knowledge of Christ (2 Peter 3:18) and who have a heart for being part of building God’s Kingdom through the proclamation of the gospel at any cost. A student’s file will not be treated until all the required information is submitted. Students are admitted into CBTS with the understanding that he or she will adhere to the school’s character, statutes, ordinances, regulations, rules, and by-laws, as well as enjoy privileges offered by the school.

The Seminary expects students, both on and off campus, to conduct their lives in a manner worthy of the gospel of Christ (Phil 1:27). Students will seek to be moral, ethical, and lawful in their conduct both on and off campus. The school reserves the right to withdraw admission for conduct which is contrary to the objectives of CBTS and the Cameroon Baptist Convention.
