To apply for entrance into River Bible Institute, the following actions are required:


  • Complete the online Application for Admissions that applies to your program and submit it with a non-refundable $50.00 application fee.

  • Students who are utilizing a payment plan for tuition must complete a Financial Agreement Form. (Payment Plans are only authorized by the River University Administrator.)

  • Students wishing to receive academic credit for their previous schooling must have an official transcript sent to the Office of Admissions. The student is responsible for all fees relating to the acquisition of transcripts. Transcript request forms are available upon request.

  • After submitting their completed application, new students may be required to have a pre-admission interview with a school staff member.

  • Students who have been accepted, but are prevented from attending the current school year, may postpone their enrollment for up to 12 months. After 12 months students must reapply.

  • Applications are valid for 12 months.


Once all necessary information has been submitted, the pre-admission interview has been conducted (if applicable), and the student has been accepted, the student may then attend orientation and register for classes.


Students who leave in good standing may reapply for active status at a later date. If a student violates or varies from the standards set by the school or Revival Ministries International as a whole, River University reserves the right to revoke any such student’s degree. Any student having an outstanding balance will be prohibited from readmission to this institution until all accounts are settled. Any student who has been expelled from school for disciplinary reasons will be denied readmission until approval has been granted by the President of the college.

Students in good standing who desire to return to school after a 12-month absence or after interrupted education will be classified as returning students. These students need to complete a new student application online and pay the required course tuition, textbook, and other fees.
