Enrollment into the University’s programs is open to any student who is spiritually qualified to pursue serious theological study to better serve the church in Christian ministry and research.

The prerequisite for admission to the undergraduate program is a high school diploma or GED. Entry to the VIU graduate program requires a Bachelors degree in any subject.

Institution-Wide Non-discrimination Policy

Veritas International University, a private religious non-profit educational institution, is committed to equality of educational and employment opportunity and will not discriminate against applicants, the retention of students, or the selection, retention, and advancement of VIU personnel on the basis of race, sex, color, national or ethnic origin, age, disability, prior military service, or any other basis prohibited by law (Rom. 2:11; 12:1-2; Gal. 3:28). Federal guidelines (Sections 702-703 of Title VII of the 1964 Civil Rights Act) clearly recognize the right of private non-profit religious institutions to seek personnel who will support the mission, educational goals, and doctrinal statement of the institution. Being an applicant, student, or employee at Veritas International University requires a commitment and lifestyle consistent with the institution’s mission, goals, and doctrinal statement. VIU reserves the right to deny admission, advancement, or retention of individuals, who by past academic experience or job performance, or lifestyle decisions, demonstrate they are not in harmony with the mission, goals, and content published in the VIU handbooks or the doctrinal statement of the institution (Jam. 3:1; 1 Tim. 3:1-16; 2 Tim. 3:5).
