Admission Information

All applications for degree programs are reviewed by the admissions committee without prejudicial regard to race, ethnic origin, sex, marital status, sexual orientation, physical handicap or age.  All admissions decisions are confidential.

Applications for admission are accepted on a rolling basis for each academic year. Different deadlines apply to each program. The admissions committee reserves the right to postpone action on any applicant. The admissions committee may require an interview with the candidate before making a decision on admission, and in some cases may require a letter from the appropriate denominational body having responsibility for the candidate’s preparation for ministry before making a decision.

If an applicant intends to use The University of Dubuque Theological Seminary housing, an additional housing deposit of $100.00 is required. The deposits are nonrefundable for students who do not enroll.
