The Committee on Admissions cannot guarantee action on any application received after June 1

Interviews are required of all applicants.  Arrangements for interviews may be made with the Director of Admissions. (Please see Visits and Interviews for more information.)

Upon admission, students are required to submit a completed Medical Information Form and proof of protection against measles, mumps and rubella. (Persons born prior to January 1, 1957 are exempt from the latter requirement.)  The form may be found on the New Student Information page.

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.
