Supplementary Admission Information

CSR Applicants

It is strongly recommended that you have basic introductory knowledge of the Bible, theology, church history and ethics before matriculating into the CSR program. This recommendation can be satisfied in one of the following three ways:

  1. Undergraduate or graduate level course work in these areas at an accredited institution;
  2. Proof of completion of an MDiv degree program;
  3. Completion of a reading list supplied by PSR.

Transfer Students

Transfer credit from an accredited seminary or graduate school is accepted if that credit has not already been applied to a degree and if that credit is evaluated by the Associate Dean as an appropriate part of the MDiv program. Transfer students should contact the Associate Dean as early as possible in the application process. Petitions to the Associate Dean should include an official transcript showing the credits earned. In some cases, the Associate Dean may request that you supply syllabi to accompany the written request.

If you are transferring to the Master of Divinity program you should contact the Field Education office during the application process to determine your filed education requirements and to plan for a placement if necessary.
