Applying to St. Vladimir's


Admissions Applications

Application Start: February 1, 2021
Application Deadline: May 1, 2021
Late Application Deadline: June 1, 2021

Applications for admission to St. Vladimir’s are reviewed on a rolling basis, beginning February 1 and ending May 1, 2021. Prospective students who apply after June 1 will be charged a late application fee and have lower priority for housing.

The Seminary is using an online, cloud-based admissions system. Applicants are no longer required to submit paper-based application forms and documents via physical and/or electronic mail, as in previous years. Applicants are instead required to create an online account on the new admissions system, where they will be able to fill out the standard application form, pay the admissions fee, submit documentation required by the degree program they apply for, track the progress of the admissions process, ask for information and assistance from the Admissions Office, receive and manage their offer of admissions, and pay the required deposits before enrollment.

Interviews. Interviews with faculty are required as part of the application process.  Arrangements for interviews may be made with the Academic & Recruitment Advisor. Please see Visits and Interviews for more information.

Ordination. Please note that acceptance into and the completion of a seminary program does not constitute a guarantee of ordination in any Church.  Only ecclesiastical authorities have the competency to decide if a person should be ordained.

Non-Discrimination. St. Vladimir’s Seminary does not discriminate in admission or in access to its programs on the basis of race/color, national origin, disability, age, marital status, sex, or veteran status.
