Admissions Deadlines

Master of Divinity Deadlines

The School of Divinity has deadlines and accepts applications on a rolling basis until the final deadline. 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 by the early and priority deadlines are also strongly encouraged for applicants to be given full consideration for financial aid, including the Wake Divinity Scholars Visit. Late applications will be considered while openings remain with approval from the deans of admissions.
