We base our admission decisions on consideration of all criteria. Each applicant is evaluated individually. Your motivation, maturity, work experience, and leadership qualities are carefully considered along with academic records and test scores.

Admission to Saint Leo University is a simple, straightforward process. In order to become a degree-seeking student in our theology program, you will need to complete the following steps.

Application Process

Admission to Saint Leo's graduate Theology program is a simple, straightforward process. Applicants should submit the following materials 60 days before the beginning of the term in which they wish to enroll.

Applicants must hold a bachelor's and/or master's degree from a U.S. regionally accredited institution with a minimum GPA of 3.0 on a 4-point scale, unless otherwise approved by the graduate Theology program office for a waiver.

  1. Fill out the online application or download, complete and return the application for graduate admission.
  2. Send official transcripts from all post-secondary institutions you've previously attended to the Office of Graduate Admission. A United States equivalency evaluation must accompany transcripts from foreign institutions, which must be certified by an approved evaluation service. Graduates or former students of Saint Leo University do not need to submit transcripts if they have been previously been submitted and are on file. Download Transcript Request Form
  3. Arrange for one professional recommendation from your supervisor or pastor in ministry that can be completed on forms you can download here. Download Professional Recommendation Form
