Background Checks:

In order to facilitate student admission to Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary and The College at Southeastern it is necessary to conduct background checks for all applicants for on-campus studies and most distance learning students.

  • Each applicant must authorize Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary and The College at Southeastern to obtain a background check in order to satisfy the admission requirements as set by the institution.
  • The only exclusion to the background check will be special exemptions made for Distance Learning students, namely students admitted through a short application for one course off-campus. This exemption is monitored by the Admissions Office, which has the right to administer the exemption as necessary.

  • Failure to undergo the background check will result in exclusion from admission consideration. If the background check indicates criminal behavior the student may not be awarded admission to the institution. Students may appeal the decision and will have the opportunity to present information to dispute the background check.
