Missouri Baptist University is committed to maintaining a community that recognizes and values the inherent worth and dignity of every person.  Missouri Baptist University affirms that an important part of the integration of faith and learning is the recognition that all people are created in the image of God and worthy of respect and dignity.  We seek to ensure that all students have full access to the educational, social, and spiritual growth opportunities that the University provides to ensure that students understand and appreciate one of the University’s core values which is “social change through service and leadership.”

Through its curricula and classroom experiences, the university seeks to develop and nurture diversity because it strengthens the organization, promotes creative problem solving, and enriches us all.

The goal is to present materials and activities that are respectful of diverse groups including, but not limited to, race, gender, color, national or ethnic origin, age, qualified disability, military service, learning differences, or socioeconomic status.

Plus, the average annual financial aid grant is approximately $12,000 per full-time student. Our friendly and skilled admissions and financial aid staff are committed to finding resources to help make your education at MBU a reality.

Personal Attention
MBU features small class sizes that allow our instructors bring out the best in each individual student. As a University, we firmly believe this close interaction is the best way to help students realize their potential.

At MBU, students get involved. All of our programs, both academic and social, are inclusive for all students. They provide the life experience and perspective necessary to become a well-rounded individual. We sponsor mission trips and international study programs to encourage a passion for impacting the world you live in.

With a diverse student body comes diverse schedules. That’s why MBU helps students take just about any course just about any time. Students can choose between 16-week daytime classes or eight-week evening classes. We offer classes at extension sites in Troy/Wentzville, Arnold, Franklin and St. Charles Counties and at Jefferson College, Mineral Area Community College and Lewis and Clark Community College. And we have a consortium arrangement with other St. Louis colleges. At MBU, we put an emphasis on convenience to drive your success.

Success is measured by what you do after your time at MBU – not just in your career, but in life. We encourage students to search for truth and to develop their God-given abilities so they can shine on well past graduation.

Because MBU is a Christ-centered institution, students can pursue their education without compromising their faith. We feature a learning environment that provides an ethical and moral basis from reasoning that goes beyond the mere accumulation of facts.
