Western Seminary seeks to not only develop ministry leaders in the United States, but also
all over the world. We currently enroll students from over 15 nations – spanning 6 continents. Many
of our international student graduates have gone on to have significant ministries
in their home countries and abroad. We believe that training men and women for strategic ministry
roles is not just an academic exercise, but one that matures the believer and ignites their passion
for Christ and their heart to serve the Church worldwide.
We are excited that you are considering or have decided to make Western Seminary the place to
further your ministerial training. Answers to many of your questions as both
a prospective or current international student may be found here on our website
- information on the programs we offer, courses, schedules and procedures.
Regardless of your citizenship
or immigration status, we will be glad to answer any specific questions you may
have concerning Western Seminary or the application process. This office has specific concern
for those with various visas and those who are naturalized citizens.
We pray that God will guide your decisions, and we look forward to assisting your admission to
Western Seminary, if possible. If you are admitted, the focus of this office will be to ease your
transition and to provide all necessary practical assistance during your time of study here.
Yours in Christ’s service,
International Student Coordinator
