Bethany College supports students as they prepare to enter graduate and professional programs upon graduation from Bethany. Between 40 and 45% of Bethany students attend some post-undergraduate program within one year of graduation. Recent graduates have been the recipients of such graduate fellowships as the Fulbright Program, the James Madison Fellowship, and the Still Fellowship at the University of Kentucky.

The Office of Career Counseling and Placement works with students to prepare them for examinations required by graduate and professional programs such as the GRE, MCAT, LSAT, OAT, and others. Faculty members in specific disciplines assist students in the selection of appropriate graduate or professional programs, as well as assist in the preparation of applications.
