Questions about this policy?
Provisional status may be offered for up to 18 months to applicants who do not meet the minimum academic requirements but who otherwise meet admission criteria and standards. The minimum academic requirements for regular admission are a bachelor’s degree from an accredited college or university; a minimum cumulative GPA of 3.0 on a 4.0 scale; and, when applicable, TOEFL test scores that meet minimum acceptable scores. (Cumulative GPA is calculated from all higher education coursework.)
Provisional status may also be offered to applicants whose files contain insufficient information for the committee to determine if they meet the minimum academic requirements and who otherwise meet admission criteria and standards.
Provisional status provides a student with the opportunity to demonstrate successful participation in the academic life of the institution.
Provisional status is for the Master of Divinity (MDiv), Master of Arts in Social Transformation (MAST), or Master of Theological Studies (MTS) programs only. Admission without a bachelor’s degree to any of our other programs will be decided by the Admissions Committee on a case-by-case basis.
- Applicants complete and submit the standard program application with the same required supporting materials.
- Provisional status is offered by the Admissions Committee based upon its review of the application file.
- Applicants who do not possess a bachelor’s degree must have a minimum of two years’ worth of undergraduate coursework in order to be admitted to any program.
