Admissions

Urshan Graduate School of Theology admits qualified men and women of the Apostolic faith to further prepare them for Christian service. The decision to admit a student rests solely with the Admissions Committee.

Admission to the Master of Divinity, Master of Arts in Christian Ministry, or Master of Theological Studies program is based on the following considerations:

Christian Character

As evidenced by membership and active participation in church, recommendation by Christian leaders, and compatibility with the stated purposes of the Urshan Graduate School.

Commitment to Christian Service

As evidenced by the essay describing call to Christian service, by stated vocational goals, and by an interview with a member of the Urshan Graduate School of Theology Admissions Committee.

Academic Readiness

As evidenced by a command of the English language demonstrated in the admission essay, by the possession of a bachelor’s degree, with an overall grade point average (GPA) of at least 2.7 on a 4.0 scale. In the case where the applicant’s primary language is not English, the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) will be used to test English proficiency.

Urshan Graduate School offers opportunity for students to begin taking classes as a non-matriculated student. In this way, students may enroll in a short-term course or a distance-learning course to discover first-hand whether or not they want to enroll in a degree program. Students may take as many courses as they would like as a non-matriculated student, but they may only transfer up to twelve credits into a degree program. Regular tuition and fees apply to courses taken as a non-matriculated student.
