Letter of Permission Application
The Master of Divinity degree program is designed to provide opportunities for academic, personal, and spiritual growth. As such, admission is based not only on academic considerations, but also on evidence of personal maturity, good character, and the potential for spiritual growth. In order to assess these criteria for admission to the MDiv, we rely on the candidate’s application, the confidential statements made by referees, and where the Admissions Committee so recommends, an interview with the candidate.
Once an application file is complete, with all supporting documents received by Huron, it is reviewed by an Admissions Committee comprised of the Dean of Theology and two full-time members of the Faculty of Theology. After their review of the completed application, the Admissions Committee may recommend that the candidate be interviewed. The candidate will then be contacted by the Dean to arrange for a final interview before a decision is made and communicated to the candidate.
