Applicants Without an Undergraduate Degree

Applicants to Briercrest Seminary who do not possess an undergraduate degree have two options for admission.

1. Demonstrate bachelor's equivalency: 90 or more credit hours of undergraduate work completed from accredited insitution(s).

2. 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).

Please note:
Students can appeal for admission into the program of their choice as non-degree students.  No more than 15 per cent of the total number of students in a given program can be accepted as "non-degree student." In the event that the 15 per cent limit is reached, the applicant will be informed and placed on a waiting list.
