First-time Applicants to Certificate and MTh programs: The deadline has passed for new admission to the current academic year. You may begin an application for fall 2021 admission at any time. Application deadline is March 15 of each year.
Continuing Students: Current and former students who were admitted under the Certificate program and now wish to be considered for the Master of Theology degree must complete a Bridge Application, so-named because it forms the "bridge" between the Certificate and MTh programs. Applications are due by October 1st of the third semester of study (Unit III) in order to be considered for the Thesis semester immediately following the completion of coursework (Unit VI). Bridge Applications may be submitted up to 10 years after Certificate completion, but please keep in mind that the Bridge Application deadline is 15 months prior to starting work on your Thesis.
PhD applications are accepted only during even-numbered years (2022, 2024, etc.).
How does the online application work?
First, you will provide your contact information and select the correct application from the drop-down menu below. You'll then be prompted to pay the non-refundable application fee by credit card. Once you click SUBMIT, a link to your full application will be sent to you. You will be able to return to your application using that link up until the time that you submit your application. Letters of reference (when required) are submitted via the online application portal. You will provide the person's name and email address in your application, and they will receive a link with instructions for submitting their letter directly into your application via the online portal.
Which application should I choose? If you are a first-time applicant and already hold an undergraduate degree, and your goal is to obtain the Master of Theology (MTh) degree, please select the "MTh in Applied Orthodox Theology" application from the drop-down menu. The "Certificate" application is for students who are not planning on pursuing the Thesis and Master's degree. Course work is the same; MTh students simply have the additional Thesis semester.
