Admissions

Episcopal Divinity School welcomes applications from prospective students seeking theological education who share our commitment to serve and advance a mission of justice, compassion, and reconciliation.

We offer graduate degree programs leading to a Master of Divinity, Master of Arts in Theological Studies, and a Doctor of Ministry.

EDS also offers several certificate programs, including one in Anglican Studies that is primarily designed for Episcopalians in the ordination process who need to complete their Anglican studies requirements.

Both our degree and certificate programs are highly flexible and can be completed through our residential Traditional Learning option, or through our Distributive Learning option, which combines on-campus residences with a unique distance learning program.

All of EDS’s programs are open to students from all faith traditions; Episcopal postulancy or plans for ordination in another denomination are not requirements for any program. 

EDS offers generous scholarships and grants on the basis of financial need and merit. The average institutional financial grant received by students on financial aid amounts to 70% of tuition costs. 

Several more full-tuition scholarships are also available each year. For more information on finanical aid, scholarships, and grants, visit our financial assistance page.
