BMATS-Ark. Fall Semester 2015!

As the summer of 2015 comes to a close, we’re looking forward to another great fall semester at the BMA Theological Seminary!  In fact, we are once again looking at a NEW RECORD for new student enrollment!  According to ATS, BMATS is one of the fastest growing accredited theological seminaries in North America.  Even more, recently identified BMATS as the #1 fastest growing ATS accredited theological seminary (of around 280)!  This is due to a number of factors which we have written about previously, but for now, here are a couple of items about which you need to be aware in anticipation for the new semester:  
  1. Fall Semester Convocation.  The Fall Semester Convocation is Friday, August 28th.  It is in the Toland Chapel, at 7:00 PM.  Our new associate faculty member, Dr. David Cox will be the speaker for the evening.   There will be lite refreshments to follow.  This is required for ALL STUDENTS.  Unexcused failure to attend will unfortunately result in an absence being credited to each class in which the student is enrolled for the semester.  
  2.  New Student Orientation.  The new student orientation will be prior to the fall semester convocation from 6:00-6:50 PM in LC100 (the “Seminary Room”) in the Cooper Complex.  This event is required for all NEW students in order to prepare you for your seminary experience. 
  3. Late Enrollment.  The close of registration for the Fall semester is near (next week). We have a couple of courses we are offering to accommodate expanding student interest.  These courses may or may not make depending on actual enrollment.  Here’s what you need to know: i.) If you haven't enrolled yet, please do so as soon as possible. This will ensure that your favorite/needed course will be available.  Timely completion of your program may depend on this; ii.) Also, if you wait until after the close of registration, a late fee will be charged, but it may be too late for your class anyway; iii.) If you know of someone who is on the fence about enrolling, now is the time to remind them of the importance of enrolling. Enrollment this semester is crucial for us to make decisions about how the seminary should proceed in the spring and following year.  Now is the time to help your friend get signed up!  Thanks so much, and I look forward to seeing you all soon!

To God Alone be the Glory,
