1English I is required for all new students due to the intense reading and writing content in the curriculum.  Exemptions for enrollment in English I are based on the submission of ACT/SAT scores before the beginning of the semester in which the student begins. The minimum criteria for exemption are : 18 or higher on the English and Reading sections of the ACT, 450 or higher on the Reading and Writing sections of the SAT, or transferring in a score of "B" or higher in English Composition from another college or university.  Please note, international students seeking exemption must transfer in scores of "B" or higher for two semesters of English Composition. The three hours for this course are not included in the number of hours required for the degree but can count toward elective hours required for graduation.

2Students are required to take four semesters (two years) in either Greek or Latin.  Students cannot mix languages or take languages at the seminary level as course substitutions.  The goal is proficiency in one language.

3Students are required to go on one International Mission Trip over the course of their time at the College in order to graduate. To meet this requirement, the trip must be faculty-led by either one of the faculty members at the College at Southwestern or Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary, and the trip must be out of the country.

4Students are allowed to take multiple focused studies in a particular Testament as long as they have not taken the same course previously. Extra hours in Bible can count as electives.

5Students are required to have six hours of theology focused study. Students can take two THE 3203 courses or two THE 4203 courses or one of each to count for the six required hours of theology focused study as long as they have not previously taken the same course, i.e., a student cannot take two theology focused studies on the Doctrine of Revelation. Students can also take multiple theology focused studies to count as electives, provided they have already met the six-hour requirement and have not previously taken the same course.

6Twenty-one hours of electives are available. These may be taken as free electives or the student may choose a prescribed concentration. Most concentrations are fifteen hours in length, leaving three hours for free electives. If a selected concentration requires more than 21 hours, then the overall length of the B.A. will exceed 129 hours.

7Non-transfer students are required to pass six semesters of chapel. Transfer students will have the number of required semesters reduced based on the number of hours transferred. Students can miss no more than 9 chapel sessions each semester to receive credit for chapel.
