Admission Requirements

Age and Background

As a “second career” Seminary, the general range for acceptance is 30 to 60 years of age. The expectation is that an applicant will have obtained an undergraduate degree. Any exceptions to this degree requirement will be in accordance with Association of Theological Schools standards.


Candidates apply for admission to our Seminary under the sponsorship of a diocese or religious order. The Seminary must have formal evidence of sponsorship prior to reviewing an application. Members of nearby religious communities who are studying for the priesthood may do so as day students at the Seminary, if the religious community desires that option.
