Things to Consider

Entrance Qualifications

Acceptance into California Coast Bible College will be determined by your application, transcripts, references, an interview (if applicable), and the prayerful consideration of our pastoral team.

California Coast Bible College (CCBC) admits students of any race, color, national and ethnic origin to all the rights, privileges, programs, and activities generally made available to students at the school. CCBC does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national or ethnic origin, or any other basis prohibited by federal and state law, in administration of its admission policies, financial aid programs, educational policies, and other school-administered programs. 

Timing: Three main factors contribute toward determining whether this is the right time for you to be a student:

1.     Spiritual Authority: We want to know that the spiritual authorities in your life (parents, pastors, and mentors) all agree that this is the right training environment for you at this time. 

2.     Personal Life: Spiritual maturity and preparedness are key factors in determining your entrance into this program. In order to be considered for acceptance, your commitment to spiritual disciplines and involvement in a local church over the past six months will be examined.

3.     Finances: You must demonstrate financial stability in order to be considered as a student. Students are not permitted to work full-time jobs. Students may work part-time (limited to 20 hours per week) as long as it does not interfere with the CCBC schedule.


Application Checklist

 1. Complete the Application

Fill out the online portion of the California Coast Bible College application completely and submit it. Please take the time to read and complete all questions and denoted fields. All applications and recommendations must be received no later than July 1st. There will be a $25 late fee incurred for applications received on or after June 1st. Please contact our offices for questions regarding late applications.

2. Follow up with References

Follow up to make sure the people you sent your pastoral and parent/guardian recommendation forms to received them and have completed and submitted them. We cannot process your acceptance until we receive all required recommendation forms.

Parental or Guardian Recommendation: Have your Parents/Guardian complete the online Parental Recommendation Form (for applicants to whom this does not apply, please contact our offices for further instructions on references). Applicants 21 years or older may opt to have an employer complete a recommendation in lieu of the parental form.

3. Request Official Transcripts

California Coast Bible College students are expected to be high school graduates or to have successfully completed the High School Equivalency Exam (G.E.D.) prior to enrollment. In order to be accepted as a student you must submit an official sealed high school, GED, or college transcript to our offices along with your application. Transcripts may be mailed directly from your educational institution to: California Coast Bible College, Attn: Admissions 6360 Telephone Road Ventura, CA 93003. If you have completed multiple schools, we only need the transcript from your most recent schooling (highschool or college).

4. Apply for a Passport

All CCBC students are required to participate in one of our annual, staff directed mission trips in order to successfully complete the program. Our "local" missions, covered in the price of tuition, may include Mexico. As our destinations require a passport for the purpose of travel, all students must apply for or have already obtained and possess proof of a valid passport before finalizing enrollment in CCBC.

If you have any questions you may call our offices at (805) 850-0499 or email us at info@californiacoastbiblecollege.org.


Coming into my first year, I knew I was somewhat in over my head but in a good way. I had come into my first year with a lot of brokenness and was so open for the healing process that God wanted to work through me. The community was everything that I needed and the structure of life and discipline was very crucial for me to have. The moments of being in a track called "outreach" really showed me how to look past myself and look at the beauty in others. Even encounters shaped my life. Coming into the year, I had different soul ties and was addicted to cigarettes, and today I stand firm to say I have full freedom over those things. My second year was different that’s for sure. It was teaching me how to put my leadership skills into practice. The main thing about my second year that shaped me was the missions trip to Africa. Hearing God promise to me that I would go to Africa and seeing it be fulfilled in a matter of just several weeks was miraculous. Truly California Coast Bible College is more than just a college degree, but it's a supernatural environment waiting to be tapped in to.

California Coast Bible College is training for the race of a lifetime. This program equips you with the necessary tools to grow in your journey with Christ and prepare you for His work. It is engaging in soul-training by weekly prayer and worship, and dynamic lectures from instructors who love God, His Word and impart their knowledge and anointing on you. It is serving in the local church and gaining God's heart for people. It is taking the gospel out and being a voice to this generation.

When I first stepped foot in Ventura, I had no idea what I was walking in to. But without fail, this program radically changed my life. I wasn't fortunate enough to come from a Christian home, but that didn't stop God from grabbing hold of my heart. When I got to California, it's almost as if God was saying "Finally, kid, you heard Me." I fell in love with this perfect beach town, my apartment of 7 girls who will all be in my wedding, every Pastor who poured countless hours into my life, and most importantly I fell more in love with my Savior.

"You can have as much of God as you want, how much you get is up to you". Those words were some of the first I heard three years ago when I left all I knew to come be a part of a program that would forever change my life. I had spent 18 years running from a God that loved me relentlessly; however, now I found myself at the start of a new adventure, one where I started chasing Him back. California Coast Bible College gave me an environment where I found who God really was, and in finding Him I found who I was really meant to be.

I was set on getting my bachelor's degree and never would have thought that I would do CCBC or any Bible college, but God put it on my heart to dedicate nine months completely to Him. He revealed to me that growing in my relationship with Him and as a leader would prepare me for whatever field I end up in, whether it be ministry or in the secular world. CCBC truly prepares you for life and shows you that walking with God daily is essential. Even if you know you aren't called to full time ministry, CCBC helps to set an amazing foundation for your life!
