Admissions and Application Process
Application Process for All Graduate Degrees
Applicants must hold a bachelor's degree in ministry, chaplaincy, social work or equivalent for master’s programs and a graduate degree from an academic or professional institution for all doctoral programs.
Official academic transcripts or educational records (undergraduate for master’s applicants and graduate for doctoral applicants) are to be sent directly from the granting institution to the Office of the Registrar upon formal application.
Applications are accepted and processed throughout the year. Evaluation of applications takes approximately two weeks.
A ministry statement is required of all applicants. This statement should express the applicant's own personal commitment to the program chosen and why the applicant feels it would serve his/her professional needs. Ministry experience should be listed as part of this statement. This is the core component of the application.
Two letters of recommendation are required for all degree programs. These letters may be from a professional colleague, former professor, lay member of the parish, or ministry professional.
A non-refundable application fee of $75.00 must accompany the application.
