Admission Process for First-Time Freshmen

Complete an application for Admission, or use our on-line application. The $30 application fee is payable by cash, check, money order or credit card. We accept Visa, Master Card, American Express and Discover. If mailing your application fee, please send it to: Bethel University, Business Office, 325 Cherry Ave., McKenzie, TN 38201.

Next, have your high school guidance counselor send an Official Transcript to the Office of Enrollment Services, PO Box 130, McKenzie, TN 38201. Make sure your cumulative GPA and class rank (if available) are included on your transcript. 

Also, have your official ACT/SAT scores sent to the Office of Enrollment Services, PO Box 130, McKenzie, TN 38201.

The best way to ensure that the Bethel University Office of Enrollment Services receives each item of the Application file is to have your School Counselor collect the items and mail them directly to our office.

Finally, you must submit immunization records.
