The mission of NOBTS is to “equip students to fulfill the Great Commission and the Great Commandments through the local church and its ministries.” Since our institutional mission is to equip trained leaders, student success is of great importance to NOBTS. We desire our graduates to exemplify the wisdom, knowledge, and skills to be effective in ministry. In addition to grades, NOBTS utilizes three means to gauge student success: student graduation and persistence rates, employment rates, and licensure rates. For a more complete rationale for the thresholds for performance designated by NOBTS and how these targets relate to our mission, see Rationale for Student Success. The following charts indicate how NOBTS students have performed in the student graduation and persistence, employment, and licensure testing:
