Pre-Application Form

In addition to our pre-application form below, prospective students must also submit an online application to the Graduate School.

Among other components, the application requires a Statement of Intent specific to the M.Div. Program, setting forth the applicant's goals for Christian ministry and detailing how the M.Div. will assist s/he in meeting those goals.

Applicants must also submit an Autobiographical Statement, written according to a form specified by the M.Div. Director. The Autobiographical Statement should be uploaded under the 'Additional Uploads' section.

An academic writing sample is not required, but the applicant may choose to include this by uploading it in the 'Writing Sample' section.

Finally, a personal interview is normally required and is held at the University of Notre Dame with the admission committee of the M.Div. Program.
