Applicants Without an Undergraduate Degree
Applicants to Briercrest Seminary who do not possess an undergraduate degree have two options for completing their application:
1. A student can complete the regular application process (click here). That is, if he/she has completed a minimum of 90 total credit hours from any accredited post-secondary institution (or, credit hours from an unnaccredited institution will be reviewed on a case by case basis), he/she can be granted admission through Bachelor's Equivalency. This track will allow the student to apply to the program of his/her choice.
2. An applicant who does not have an undergraduate degree or enough post-secondary credit hours for Bachelor's Equivalency can go through the regular application process (click here), and apply to the Certificate of the Seminary program.
A student can proceed to work towards a Master of Arts or Master of Divinity program offered by Briercrest Seminary after he/she successfully completes the Certificate of the Seminary (i.e. with a 2.5 GPA). A student can apply to the program of his/her choice and be granted admission as a "mature student."
Please note: No more than 10 per cent of the total number of students in a given program can be accepted as mature students. In the event that the 10 per cent limit is met when an application is submitted, the applicant will be informed and placed on a waiting list. As soon as a spot opens up in the program, the applicant will be notified and permitted to continue with his/her studies.
