While the college has an open admissions policy, suggesting a non-restrictive and inclusive application process, on-campus housing is available to foster a closely-knit living environment for those who choose to reside within the campus bounds. Central Baptist College fields athletic teams, known as the Mustangs, but does not particularly emphasize athletics as a cornerstone of the college identity.
