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. Pre-requisite coursework in theology is not required to apply. 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.

Application Checklist

The following items are required to be considered for admission

3 Letters of Recommendation

Once you have created an account to apply, you will be able to send letter of recommendation requests directly through the application. Your recommenders will then receive a link to upload their letter which will be sent confidentially to the admissions office.

Note: Only one letter is required for the Non-Degree Seeking application.

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.
