Admission Requirements and Process

PRTS accepts applications year-round. You can begin an online application for any of our degrees, certificates, or even to take one course as a visiting student.

Applicant Checklist

  • An academic reference
  • An ecclesiastical reference
  • Transcripts reflecting all post-secondary education; evidence of a completed undergraduate degree (BA or BSc) is necessary. Transcripts must be mailed directly to the seminary.
  • All applicable application essays
  • An academic writing sample
  • TOEFL or IELTS score sent to the seminary (for all ESL applicants)
  • A $50.00 application fee

What to Expect

Applications are reviewed on a rolling basis; the Admissions Committee meets and considers applications every two to three months. Please review the checklist in order to determine what is necessary to successfully submit your application.

First, you must submit a small pre-application form to help us determine which application you need. After submitting this, a new window will open where you can complete your full application. As you work on this application, each field automatically saves! You will receive two separate emails from Populi (our online student software).

  • The first is to verify your email address
  • A second email will contain a link to your application; please save this email so that you can revisit your application if you do not finish it in one sitting!

“ If you feel called by God to minister and are looking for training that combines solid Reformed theology with robust, biblical piety, our programs may be exactly what you are looking for! ”

Mail In Application

While the online option for completing an application is preferred (it is much more efficient and more streamlined), you may complete the application by mailing (or having sent) all documents to the seminary. Please contact the Admissions Office for the appropriate forms.
