Deadlines and Decisions

All application materials must be submitted to the Graduate School.

Application Deadline: February 1

Application Process

Once all required application materials have been received by the Graduate School, the application is forwarded to the Program Director. Generally, a decision is made and communicated within three weeks.

Those lacking the requisite undergraduate hours in theology are encouraged to delay formal application to the graduate program until completion of at least some (3-6) of the prerequisite hours. Prerequisites may be taken at Creighton by enrolling in University College. Contact Maureen Crouchley,, or (402) 280-2669.

In some cases, applicants are accepted into the graduate program on condition of completion of a preparatory program of prerequisites designed in consultation with the Director of Graduate Studies in Theology. Such a program consists of courses in any of the areas in which an applicant lacks sufficient background to succeed in the graduate program: biblical studies, systematic theology, moral theology.
