Student Life

Living Facilities

Residence hall rooms are carpeted, air-conditioned, and have an adjoining bath. No linens or pillows are furnished.

During the summer, residence hall accommodations are available on campus for single students and married couples with no children. During summer sessions, nonstudent spouses may live in the residence halls if space is available and pay only room and board for sessions they stay.

During one-week modules, rooms are single occupancy; nonstudent spouses may also stay. Contact Admissions Department for details.

Campus Church

The center of spiritual vibrancy is the warm local church atmosphere of Campus Church, which operates in the spirit of an independent Baptist church. The pastor and other church staff acquaint students with the workings of a separated, Bible-believing church and encourage them in their worship and service for the Lord.

Faculty, staff, and their families—as well as many local townspeople—join the college students in Sunday school, Sunday morning and evening, and Wednesday evening services. College students that have moved to the area to attend PTS are not considered permanent residents and are therefore expected to attend all the services of Campus Church.

Chapel Services

College chapel meets four times each week and Seminary chapel once a week. Each year, outstanding evangelists, pastors, and missionaries preach in chapel.

Career Services

Career Services assists students with finding employment after graduation, which includes hosting Educator Recruitment and Career Fair in the spring. The Career Services website allows students and alumni to connect with organizations regarding their respective job interests.

Standards of Conduct

Biblical Principles

The Bible is the final authority for all things and the means by which God provides principles for living in a way that protects from harmful thinking and behavior. Scripture clearly teaches how Christians are to live. In light of the wonderful gift of salvation, we are to live our lives in active pursuit of a lifestyle that keeps us pure and clean before God with careful attention to avoiding anything that detracts from our relationship with Christ (Titus 2:11–14, Rom. 12:1–2, Phil. 4:8).

In light of these principles, Pensacola Theological Seminary has adopted standards to promote an environment that is conducive to academic, social, and spiritual growth. Where the Bible directly addresses a matter, standards are set accordingly. However, since God’s Word does not mention every aspect of college life, biblical principles are followed and conservative expectations have been established to encourage right Christian living.

Personal Character

Each student is expected to act in a manner that reflects biblical values and to develop personal character traits that show maturity. Further, as a community of Christians, students should encourage and support others to live in a manner that pleases God. Characteristics that are representative of Scriptural standards and should be emulated include love for God’s Word; respect for God, other people, and property; kindness and consideration for others; compassion and Christian love; honesty and integrity; discipline and self-control; modesty and purity; diligence; responsibility; thankfulness; and etiquette and manners.

Prohibited Activities

Each student accepts the responsibility to actively uphold the Code of Conduct and to refrain from any action that would be detrimental to spiritual growth, the safety or well-being of others, or that would impair the ability of others to follow the Code of Conduct (1 Pet. 2:11, Rom. 14:13). For this reason, students are expected to abstain from any illegal or prohibited activities including use, possession, or association with alcohol, tobacco, and illicit drugs; pornography or sexual immorality; dancing; profanity or obscenity; harassment, abuse, and discrimination; gambling; stealing; and satanic practices.

College Standards

Formulated to give direction in matters that require discernment, college standards for clothing, music, entertainment, social life, and other general responsibilities are applied in an effort to align with the spirit and intention of biblical principles and to reflect conservative values.
