Apply

Here in the Admissions Office our priority is to accompany each applicant along the path of discernment, and we would invite you to give us a call at any point during the application process.

In order to allot adequate time to process your application and for you to get settled and get all of your questions answered before the term starts, please complete your application 1 month in advance of your intended start date (see priority deadlines below). The processing time for applications varies, but once your application is complete, the average length of time is 2 weeks. You may apply up until the week before classes begin, but your space is not ensured, and you may be asked to defer to the following semester.

Thank you, and we look forward to receiving your application. Please do not hesitate to contact the Office of Admissions with questions regarding the application process.

Application Requirements

Our Admissions Committee seeks prospective students who demonstrate both an academic and spiritual readiness to complete a master’s degree in theology.   

Our minimum requirement is a bachelor’s degree from an accredited college or university. The committee also evaluates the candidate’s writing sample, transcript, letters of recommendation, and overall presentation of the application materials.  

Applicants demonstrate the maturity of their faith through frequent involvement in the Church, ongoing education in the Faith (formal or informal), and letters of recommendation that testify to the candidate’s consistent life of Christian virtue and devotion.  

The Admissions Committee also strives to affirm that the prospective students’ future goals are compatible with the educational pillars of the Augustine Institute.

International Applicants

In addition to the checklist requirements, foreign nationals must do one of the following:

Submit your TOEFL scores (Test of English as a Foreign Language) with your application (Note: The TOEFL is a very costly test).

OR

Request that your admissions essay be considered as evidence of competency in the English language.

You will be evaluated on your English competency by the Admission’s Committee in order to determine your capacity for success in graduate studies. It is often the case that foreign nationals for whom English is a second language are recommended to pursue coursework on a non-degree seeking basis.

On Campus Applications
At this time, the Augustine Institute is not a SEVIS authorized school, and therefore is not authorized to issue the I-20 form, which is required for your student visa application.  The Department of Homeland Security requires an information protocol on nonimmigrant students and exchange visitors to be collected during the course of their stay.  Receiving a SEVIS authorization requires a great deal of resources and responsibility that we cannot afford at this time but may be able to achieve in the coming years as the graduate school grows.

"This education and formation has changed my life...

...I am eternally grateful for what the Augustine Institute has done for my soul, my family and my apostolate. If you feel called to further your education and theological studies, I cannot recommend anything better than the Augustine Institute.

LEAH DARROW
MA Theology, Alumna ’17

"I pray that my teaching and writing will be of...

...service to the new evangelization, helping equip my students to engage post-modernity and propose the timeless teachings of Christ in a timely way for our age.”

DR. TED SRI

"I really cannot say enough good things about...

the education and human formation we received as students at the Augustine Institute. From the outstanding professors to the rich curriculum, everything lends itself to the development of the intellect and the zeal to bring Jesus Christ to the world. I would highly recommend the Augustine Institute to anyone looking to achieve excellence in knowledge, wisdom and virtue.”

SR. MIRIAM JAMES HEIDLAND, SOLT
MA Theology, ’15

"Forming future leaders today is one of the most...

...pressing tasks we now face, and no one in this country does it with more energy, depth, and skill than the Augustine Institute.”
