Deadlines

The School of Divinity accepts applications on a rolling basis.  This means you can complete an application at any time, but not after the final deadline.  Please review deadlines below.  All applicants are encouraged to submit their applications as early as possible, especially international applicants, in order to allow the maximum amount of time once an offer is made to process the required paper work. Early submission is also strongly encouraged for applicants to be given full consideration for financial aid. Late applications will be considered while openings remain with approval from the Associate Dean of Admissions and Student Services.
