Foundational Philosophy and Standards

Western Seminary recognizes that students entering seminary represent a wide range of Christian denominations, communities, experiences and backgrounds, and does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, gender, national origin, ethnicity, age or disability in admissions or in the administration of its educational policies, loan programs, and other Seminary-administered programs.

The statements made by applicants within their submitted application are a significant factor in the admissions decision, as is compatibility with the Statement of Faith of the World Evangelical Alliance. During the application process, the Admissions Committee may request that additional information be submitted as it reviews each file to determine compatibility with the seminary. Each student must agree, without mental reservation, to remain in alignment with the theological framework and lifestyle construct as set forth in the Statement of Faith of the World Evangelical Alliance as well as the Student Handbook.
