We welcome prospective students, students from other seminaries, Meadville Lombard alums, and teaching pastors/mentors to take one or more of our classes!
We know that choosing the best theological school for you is a major decision, so we welcome prospective students to join us in Chicago in January, March, or July, during our Intensives, to take a class and experience firsthand our distinctive Unitarian Universalist education.
Prospective students can also take advantage of other ways to explore and experience Meadville Lombard:
Meadville Lombard welcomes current students enrolled in Master of Divinity degree programs at non-Unitarian Universalist seminaries to join our learning community.
Because our Contextual Learning model programs operate in a unique scheduling which includes Intensives weeks, and some courses are year-long and some are semester-long, we urge you to contact us before the Fall registration opens regardless of the Intensives dates listed on the course offerings page.
To start the process, please complete and submit the student at large application at least a couple of weeks before the registration deadline. Registration for a year-long course must be submitted before the Fall registration closes. After we receive your student at large application, the Registrar will contact you with a student ID and instructions for how to register for a course. Open enrollment starts after our matriculated students register.
Current teaching pastors and mentors are entitled to audit one class each year. For more information, please contact the Senior Director of Contextual Ministry.
