Reentry Student Degree-Seeking Application Steps and Requirements

Reentry Student Degree-Seeking Application Steps and Requirements

If you have previously been a student at Denver Seminary and would like to return to finish a degree or start a new one, here are the steps and admissions requirements.

1. Biographical Questionnaire

The biographical questionnaire only needs to be completed once and contains all the information for us to start an application for you. Once you hit submit, the admissions team will start compiling your application documents and a designated admissions counselor will stay in touch with you about what we still need from you. You will choose your desired campus, program, and start term in this step. 

2. Writing Portion

Give us an update on what’s happened in your life since you last attended Denver Seminary:

  • Address any major life challenges and changes that have impacted, or continue to impact, your personal growth and development and how you have dealt with or are dealing with those issues.
  • Include the ways God has worked in your life since you last attended Denver Seminary, including additional calls to ministry/vocation, life experiences, and spiritual development opportunities.
3. References and Transcripts

Submit one pastoral reference (a Christian leader who has known you over one year and is not related to you) and one general reference (anyone else in your life who has known you over one year and is not related to you). Denver Seminary professors count for both reference types.

Submit official transcripts from any institution where you’ve completed a degree since attending Denver Seminary. Note: Master of Theology (ThM) applicants must submit one academic reference in lieu of the general reference.

4. Supplemental Documents

Doctor of Ministry: Submit a resume of your educational and professional experience.

Master of Theology (ThM): Submit an academic writing sample.

Admissions Requirements

1. Cumulative GPA that meets your desired program requirements:
  • The Master of Arts in Counseling, Theology, Apologetics & Ethics, New Testament, and Old Testament and the Master of Theology require a 3.0 cumulative GPA.
  • All other programs require a 2.5 cumulative GPA.

(Don’t meet this requirement? Email to talk through your options for supplementing your GPA.)

2. Completion of the admissions application by the start of your desired start term.
