Admission & Registration

The Ecumenical Institute of Theology has a rolling admissions policy. Students may apply at any time for admission by submitting the appropriate materials. Students planning to pursue a degree may take courses prior to official admission into the degree program. It is prudent, however, to complete all admission requirements as soon as possible, and prospective degree candidates must normally complete all admission requirements before earning 30 credits.

An interview is required for all prospective students other than auditors (recommended for auditors). All applicants are also required to submit a recent photograph of themselves. (Electronic versions are acceptable.)

Criminal Background Checks

Consistent with our objective to safeguard individuals with whom students interact and to establish a uniform policy at St. Mary’s Seminary & University, the Ecumenical Institute requires criminal background reports on its students. All applicants must sign and return a Disclosure and Authorization to Release Information form (available here) that authorizes St. Mary’s to obtain a criminal background report. Any information that is received is strictly confidential. Any issues that arise because of the background checks are handled on a case-by-case basis by the Office of the Dean.
