Application for Admission: Certificate Courses

Admission into certificate courses requires students to complete the same steps as those for students entering college programs. However, there is no stringent pre-qualification for students enrolling in certificate courses/programs. Please note though that some certificate programs are sequential, consequently permission to register for an advanced stage may require competency at introductory and/or intermediate levels. See specific program for registration details.


Application for Admission: Transfer Students

BIBT considers the admission of students from other academic institutions of similar standards. Full credit will be awarded for relevant work completed with a grade of "C" or above. Students entering a diploma or an associate degree program can transfer a maximum of eighteen (18) or thirty-six (30) credits respectively. Students transferring into a bachelor degree program can apply ninety relevant credits towards a degree from BIBT. An official transcript of all work completed elsewhere must be received at BIBT before credits can be considered for transfer.


Application for Admission: International Students

Students who are residents of other countries are welcome to apply for studies at BIBT. However, it must be noted that in addition to the admission guidelines stipulated above, each international student must apply to the Bahamas Department of Immigration for residency status. Admission to study at Bahamas Institute of Business & Technology does not constituted permission to reside in the Bahamas. International students are required to apply to the college at least six (6) months prior to the start date of the trimester in which they wish to commence studies. Additional information regarding international student admission is provided in the international student brochure.
