Application Requirements

Applicants may be accepted as pre-degree or as special students.

International students are not eligible because of visa restrictions.

Once admitted, a special student must maintain a 2.5 grade point average to continuing enrolling.

Some courses (e.g., field education, courses at Northwestern or in the Association of Chicago Theological Schools) are not open to special students.

Applications must be completed six weeks before term of entry in order to facilitate required background checks.
