Applicants to the Pre-Theology Certificate program in the School of Philosophy must apply to the School online.

After creating an account, the applicant will be prompted to create a new application. IMPORTANT: Applicant must select “Certificate” as type of application, and “School of Philosophy Non-Degree” as the school in which they plan to study. The degree for which they are applying is “Pre-Theology – Cert.” Submitting an application under the incorrect application type will result in major delays in the processing of the application.

In order for their application to be considered complete, applicants must provide the following:

  • Completed Pre-Theology Certificate Application (see above for specifics)
  • Application fee
  • Official transcripts (Applicants are strongly encouraged to upload unofficial transcripts with their application for the sake of time; official transcripts will be added to the application later, as they are received and processed.) 
  • Three letters of recommendation
  • Statement of purpose
Applicants should send all application materials directly to the University's Office of Graduate Admission.
