Degree Program Applications (show | hide)

Calvin Theological Seminary has a rolling admissions policy which means that we will process applications when all the materials arrive. We do not have a specific deadline for admission into any of our master's degree programs. However, a student must be admitted to qualify for scholarships, so there is an admission deadline for those who intend to apply for scholarships. We will, however, process admission applications at any time during the year.

Contact the Director of Admissions and Financial Aid with any questions about the program or application process.
