The transcript must show the attainment of a baccalaureate degree. The grades attained shall give promise that the applicant can pursue courses in the University satisfactorily. The transcript should show the broad and comprehensive education essential to theological studies.

- b. Bachelor Program
The applicant needs to submit the Secondary School Report (Common Application), two Teacher Evaluations, and Mid-Year School Report for those who do not graduate yet (not required of students who have already graduated).
