Admission Requirements

Admission will be granted to students who show evidence of a vital faith in Jesus Christ, who exhibit personal integrity and spiritual maturity, who meet the specific academic prerequisites of the program for which application is made. Taylor Seminary admits students of any race, gender, age, colour, national or ethnic origin to all of its programs. It does not discriminate on such grounds in the administration of its educational policies or financial aid provisions.


Academic Prerequisites

The academic prerequisite for admission to the MDiv, MTS, MA, and Diploma programs is possession of an undergraduate degree from a recognized college or university. Graduates of unaccredited colleges, if accepted, are accepted for a probationary year. All applicants should exhibit personal integrity and spiritual maturity.

Students who have taken an undergraduate course which parallels a course required in their program may apply to the Registrar to have the required course waived. The waived course must meet the grade requirement of transfer courses.

Mature Students

Successful completion of a diploma program at Taylor Seminary does not guarantee acceptance into the MDiv or MTS program as a mature student. The number of students who may be accepted into a degree program as mature students is dependent upon the enrolment limitations. No more than 15% of the number enrolled in each of the MDiv and MTS programs shall be mature students.

Mature students who wish to transition from a diploma program to a degree program must fill out and submit the Mature Student Transition to Degree Program form in January for the following fall semester and October for the following winter semester. The academic prerequisite for acceptance into a degree program as a mature student is satisfactory performance in either the Diploma in Christian Studies or Diploma in Intercultural Studies with a cumulative grade point average of at least 2.00.

Mature students who are enrolled in a diploma or a degree program are required to carry a minimum of 12 credits per year.

Applications for acceptance into a degree program as a mature student shall be considered by the Admissions Committee, who will render their decision in writing within two weeks of the application deadlines. An unfavourable decision by the Admissions Committee may be appealed to the Academic Dean, whose decision is final and may not be appealed.

Mature students who intend to remain in their programs must register for the Fall Semester by May 15 and for the Winter Semester by November 1. If they do not intend to take courses in a particular semester, they must notify the registrar in writing by these dates of their intention to take the 12 credits per year required as a condition of their acceptance as mature students. Those who fail to do so may be dropped from their programs.


The Biblical Languages

Because of the importance of the biblical languages for the interpretation of Scripture, Taylor Seminary encourages all students to gain some familiarity with Greek and Hebrew through the 3 credit BI 514 Greek and Hebrew Tools course.


English Language Proficiency

Since the language of instruction at Taylor Seminary is English, students whose first language is not English are normally required to demonstrate facility in the English language by achieving satisfactory scores on the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL), Canadian Academic English Language Assessment (CAEL), Michigan English Language Assessment Battery (MELAB), or the International English Language Testing System (IELTS) unless proficiency in English has been demonstrated in another way. Students who have graduated from a college or university in which English is the primary language of instruction will not be required to submit TOEFL, CAEL, MELAB or IELTS results. However, the Admissions Committee may require a TOEFL, CAEL, MELAB or IELTS exam after reviewing a student's transcript and other written materials.

International students are strongly encouraged to take one of these exams and submit the results rather than hope for an exception to the policy. Test results should be sent to the Taylor Admissions Office.

Scores must be as follows:
TOEFL - 85 (internet-based test), with a minimum score of 20 in each of the four components of the test
CAEL - 70
MELAB - 85
IELTS - 6.5, with no band less than 5.0

Information on the above examinations is available from:

TOEFL: www.toefl.org
CAEL: www.cael.ca
MELAB: www.lsa.umich.edu/eli
IELTS: www.ielts.org

 

Official transcripts from all post-secondary institutions must be sent directly to Taylor Seminary by the institution.

Personal Reference Forms must be given to the individual providing a reference (pastor, church leader) and sent directly to Taylor Seminary by that individual.

The church endorsement form must be completed by the church of which you are either a member or you attend regularly. This form must be sent directly to Taylor Seminary by the church.

Students who wish to be considered for admission under mature student status must submit an application at least four months before they intend to enroll. Their application should be accompanied by a detailed statement concerning their ministry experience to date and sense of call.

When all application materials have been received, Enrolment Services will review the applicant's file and notify him or her of its decision in writing. Applicants will be informed periodically as to the status of their file. Applicants can also check with Enrolment Services to find out which documents have been received to date.

Application forms and related forms mentioned above can be found here.
