Graduate and Seminary Application Instructions

The following step-by-step application instructions will assist you in easily completing the application process:


Step 1: Application. Complete the online application, answering each applicable question.

Step 2: Transcripts. Use the Transcript Request Form to request official transcripts from your highest earned degree, for any pre-requisite or transfer work as well as any graduate level work. Transcripts must be received in a sealed envelope or electronically through a third party transcript facilitator. Non-degree-seeking applicants (NDSS) may send official or unofficial copies of their highest earned degree.

Note: Students who have attended a school outside of the United States must have transcripts validated through World Education Services.

Step 3: Additional Requirements. Download the application instructions for your degree program and follow the instructions included to submit your additional requirements to the Admissions Office. 

The requirements for each college are listed in the academic catalog.

If you choose to delay entrance more than one year, you will be required to complete the application process in its entirety.
