In most cases, you must have a baccalaureate degree or its equivalent from an institution that is accredited by a recognized regional or national accreditation body for admission to Fuller. More information on the application requirements and process is available on the
Office of Admissions page
. Please note that admission is considered only for Fall and Spring Quarters.
If you have not earned an accredited bachelor’s degree, but have three to five years of ministry experience and your gifts and calling have been verified by the church, you may be considered for admission as a special student. In addition to applying through the Admissions office, you must meet with the Assistant Dean of the African American Church Studies Program and demonstrate an ability to perform at the graduate school level. Upon completing admissions requirements, applicants may be accepted as special non-degree students, and after successfully completing 48 units, may be admitted to a master’s degree program.
We encourage you to explore Fuller as you consider continuing your education. The African American Church Studies Program staff, partnering with Fuller’s admissions counselors, would be happy to assist you in your discernment and admissions process. As you consider Fuller, we invite you to take advantage of the many opportunities we offer to visit campus and
about the seminary.
