1 Students are required to go on one International Mission Trip over the course of their time at the College in order to graduate. To meet this requirement, the trip must be faculty-led by either one of the faculty members at the College at Southwestern or Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary, and the trip must be out of the country.

2 Twenty-one hours of electives are available. These may be taken as free electives or the student may choose a prescribed minor or concentration. Minors are twenty-one hours in length. Most concentrations are fifteen hours in length, leaving three hours for free electives. If a selected concentration requires more than 21 hours, then the overall length of the B.A.H.B.S. will exceed 129 hours.

3 Non-transfer students are required to pass six semesters of chapel. Transfer students will have the number of required semesters reduced based on the number of hours transferred.
