Admissions Requirements

Admissions Process

The GSRRE invites applications for admission from those serving the Church who seek to deepen their knowledge and ministerial competence, those preparing to seek employment at parish, school, and diocesan levels, and those seeking personal enrichment through the study of Christian faith.

Applications for all master's level degree programs may be submitted at any time throughout the year. It is recommended that international students submit all application materials three months before the semester in which they wish to enroll to ensure sufficient time for the securing of a visa to study at Fordham University.

Students are admitted on a rolling basis, at the beginning of each semester, AND mid semester.
On-Line courses run in 8 week sessions, rather than traditional 15 week semesters.

Admission Procedures

The following steps should be taken to facilitate the process of acceptance to either of the degree programs:
  1. Request that the registrars of all colleges and universities you have previously attended send official transcripts directly to:
    Fordham University
    Graduate School of Religion and Religious Education
    Office of Graduate Admissions
    Keating Hall, Room 303
    Bronx, NY 10458
  1. Recommendations are sought from two professors or other significant professional persons under whom you have studied or worked. Please enter the contact information for your recommenders directly into the online application.
  2. All foreign students who have not attended college or university in a country where English is the language of instruction, must take the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL). The application will not be considered without the result of this examination.
