Admission to the Seminary is based upon academic capability and upon spiritual and moral character. A Bachelor's degree from an accredited institution, or its recognized equivalent, is the first requirement for admission to UTS. (Exceptions may be made, particularly for students who graduated from foreign post-secondary institutions but who do not have the equivalent of the U.S. Bachelor's degree.)
Academic qualifications are considered by the Director of Admissions and other members of the Admissions Committee to determine whether the applicant's educational background and ability ensure reasonable chances of success in academic work at the Seminary. An applicant's spiritual and moral character may be evaluated by personal interview, by his/her application essay or by recommendation of church elders or other knowledgeable individuals. Two letters of recommendation, at least one from a church leader, are required.
Applications are normally accepted for entry in the Fall Term.
Applications are welcome from men and women of all religions, nationalities and races. No particular course of undergraduate preparation is required, although a basic knowledge of history, the social and natural sciences, psychology and philosophy is desirable.
In seeking admission, a candidate agrees to abide by the policies, rules and regulations of the Seminary.
