Based upon CHED policy for graduate schools, the Seminary has two levels of admission: provisional acceptance and formal admission. Students are not formally admitted into the Seminary until they have completed eighteen units for M.Div. and M.A. programs and nine units for Graduate Diploma programs. Their GPA must be at least 2.0 and all other probationary stipulations must be completed. Provisional acceptance, however, is granted to prospective students who have the following qualifications:

  • Demonstrate sound doctrinal beliefs and a life of genuine Christian character befitting a person called of God to spiritual leadership and witness.
  • Possess an undergraduate degree. Students whose grade-point average is below 2.0 may be admitted on probation.
  • Have at least two years of church ministry experience.
  • Pass the Admission Test.

English proficiency requirements

At ATS, English is the medium of instruction. Thus, in addition to completing all the other application requirements, students whose first language is not English must demonstrate competency in the use of English for graduate-level studies. This will be gauged through the ATS English Proficiency Test. All international students who have not taken the TOEFL will need to take the ATS English Proficiency Test. The following are the status and requirements for each corresponding TOEFL and English Proficiency Test score: Application and reference forms are available from the Office of the Registrar. Return application forms, references, transcripts, and medical certificates to the Registrar. Provisional enrollment of late registrants may be permitted, at the discretion of the Registrar, pending action by the Admissions Committee.
