Upon being admitted to attend SUM Bible College and Theological Seminary, an admissions letter sent via e-mail will include list of additional steps to take. The admitted applicant will also be required to sign their Enrollment Agreement.
If SUM is not able to accept an applicant’s request for admission, the College will advise the applicant of the steps recommended to be taken in order to be considered for a future trimester.
Our goal is to send written notification of our admission decision within two weeks of the file being completed. Applicants are welcome to contact the Admissions Office to inquire about the status of their application.
