Admissions & Financial Aid

Admission requirements:

Perhaps the most important requirement for admission into the MA in Higher Education Program is a student's desire to pursue a vocation in service to God in the college or university setting. We will also closely evaluate students' academic accomplishments in an accredited college (minimum GPA of 2.8 on a 4.0 scale); general preparation in pursuing a program in which biblical understanding is important; gifts, styles, and interests (through letters of recommendation); and, motivations for pursuing the degree (essay). The Graduate Record Examination (GRE) is not required for admission. The components of a completed application are described on the next page. Applications are reviewed as they are received.

Current program costs:

Tuition costs for 2015-2016: $655/credit hour
All textbooks are included in the program at no additional cost.
