  • Earned Bachelor's degree with 3.2 cumulative grade point average
  • Graduate Record Exam (GRE) - at least 500 on the Verbal section of the exam.  Applicants can be admitted on probationary status for GRE scores from 450-499. Probationary status means that the student must receive a B in the first three courses that the student takes in the program to remain in the program. We accept scores from the past 10 years.

*The Five Year BA/MA Program with Teacher Certification requires 30 hours in theology for the BA and 27 hours in theology for the MA. If a student does not apply, gain acceptance, and take the course work for the fifth year MA portion of the program, then that student will need to complete six additional hours of theology (two 500-level courses) to complete the BA in theology, which normally requires 36 hours.
