Applying to St. Vladimir's

Admissions Applications

Application Deadline: April 1
Late Application Deadline: June 1

Applications for admission to St. Vladimir’s are reviewed on a rolling basis, beginning February 1 and ending June 1.  The Admissions Committee evaluates complete applications at the beginning of each month during this period and informs applicants of its decision by the middle of that month. Prospective students who apply after June 1 will be charged a late application fee and have lower priority for housing.

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.
