Office of Admissions

Handsome Dan restingThe 2022 application cycle is now closed. Please check back in September 2023 for the new application.

Learn about the application requirements.

YDS is a place where faith and intellect merge in the process of preparing future leaders for service in church and world.  We hope these pages convey to you a bit of the excitement, spirituality, intellectual fiber, joy, and sense of community that characterize life on Sterling Divinity Quadrangle.  Here you will find information about our degree programs, student interest groups, worship, faculty, ministerial formation, and more. 

I look forward to meeting you. In the meantime, please send me a message if I can help you with your questions.
