The application deadline for fall admission is January 20. After this date, we accept applications for the M.T.S., S.T.L., and S.T.D. programs on a rolling basis and as places remain available. The deadline for spring matriculation for the M.T.S., S.T.L., and S.T.D. programs is November 15. Please see deadlines for Scholarship and FAFSA applications on the Financial Aid page.
In order to study in the United States, all international students must carry a legitimate visa for which full-time academic study is permitted. If you wish to obtain an F1 student visa, you are required to demonstrate the financial resources necessary to live in the U.S. for one academic year of full-time study in accord with the cost of attendance. These resources may be confirmed by providing a bank statement in the applicant’s name or in that of the person responsible for the applicant’s financial needs during the entire course of the program. Sponsorship by a diocese or large corporation needs only a letter committing to full financial support during the entirety of the program.
An I-20 document will be provided to applicants who are accepted to a degree-seeking program at the time of course registration.
Information regarding current tuition and fees, scholarships, loans, and other financial information may be found on the Tuition and Fees and Financial Aid pages.
