Admission Requirements

Bahamas Institute of Business & Technology admission requirements are based on the philosophy that every aspiring individual with the desire and potential to benefit from higher learning should be afforded an opportunity to do so. Statistically, less than five percent of the population satisfies the traditional requirements for entry into college. However, it is our firm belief that those students who have graduated from high school with a grade point average of 2.0 or better should not be denied entry to a post secondary academic or training program. Consequently, it should be noted that BIBT Placement Exam is merely designed to channel students along the right path rather than to exclude them out rightly.




Students seeking admission into an Associate Degree or Diploma program must satisfy one of the following schemes:


Scheme A:

  • Applicant must be at least seventeen (17) years old.
  • Applicants must possess a high school diploma.
  • Cumulative Grade point average must be no less than 2.00 during the last two years of high school.
  • Applicants must possess not less than five BGCSE passes including Math and English with grades of "C" or better or the equivalent thereof.

Scheme B: (Mature Students)

  • Applicants must be at least twenty-one (21) years old.
  • Applicants must have worked in the desired area of study for at least three (3) years.
  • Applicants must possess a high school diploma.
  • Applicants must possess passes in at least three BGCSE subjects including Math and English.


NOTE: All persons entering a degree or a diploma program without the requisite BGCSE passes MUST sit the college's placement exam and enroll in the appropriate foundation courses.
