We look forward to welcoming you into Meadville Lombard’s Master of Divinity degree program. In order to apply, prospective students must hold a bachelor’s degree from an accredited institution.*
For applicants residing outside the United States, before an application can be submitted for review, a conversation with our Sr. Director of Contextual Ministry is required to discuss if and how degree requirements could be met in your location.
An on-campus interview is not required; however, a member of the admissions committee may request one.
Meadville Lombard utilizes a rolling admissions model. All applications are reviewed in chronological order according to the date they were completed, and applicants are notified of their acceptance status via email as soon as possible.
*Note: Accredited institutions are those recognized by the Council for Higher Education Accreditation or holding membership in the Association of Universities and Colleges in Canada. Prospective students may alternately hold a documented, educational equivalent of a bachelor’s degree from courses taken at an accredited institution. Exceptions to this policy may be allowed, depending on circumstances. Contact the Admissions Office with questions or to discuss your situation.
