Upon admission, students are required to submit the Proof of Health Insurance Form and the Immunization Form, which verifies that the student is protected against measles, mumps and rubella.

St Vladimir's Seminary does not discriminate in admission or access to its programs and activities on the basis of race/color, national origin, disability, age, marital status, sex, or veteran status. At the same time, applicants are reminded that completion of a seminary program does not constitute a guarantee of ordination in the Orthodox Church. Ordination decisions are only within the competency of  ecclesiastical authority.
