Returning Students

Subsequent to graduation, official withdrawal or after one year’s absence from seminary enrollment, students who wish to attend classes or complete a second degree must apply for readmission to Western Seminary as follows:

  1. Submit the application form.
  2. Provide the non-refundable application fee.
  3. In the short answer section of the online application for admission, provide a 250-500 word statement explaining:
    1. Reason for leave of absence or withdrawal;
    2. How circumstances have changed;/li>
    3. Current plan; and
    4. Intended time frame for degree completion.
  4. Secure two new references, preferably persons who are well acquainted with work the applicant has been doing since attending Western Seminary.
  5. Submit official transcripts of any work done simultaneous with enrollment or after leaving Western Seminary.

Students who are readmitted are admitted to the catalog that is operative at the time of re-enrollment. Due to changes in degree plans and to time limitations on the completions of degrees, some academic work previously completed at Western Seminary may not apply to the degree program to which the student is being readmitted.

Readmitted students should contact the Registrar for a review of the former academic work.
