Enrollment Procedures

Students submit completed Application Form with all required documents to:
Attn: Office of Admissions
Institute of Lutheran Theology

Admission Status

Admission may be granted with one of the following qualifications:
 
• Full Admission: This status signifies that the student has met all admission requirements and is matriculated candidate for a degree.
 
• Conditional Admission: This status is awarded to students who have met all requirements in principle but from whom one or more official documents are still required. When the materials required are provided to the Office of Admissions, the status is changed to Full Admission. The fulfillment of the condition is the responsibility of the student.
 
• Provisional Admission: In some cases, a student with outstanding credentials in other areas but whose admission GPA is below what is required for the program may be admitted provisionally on Academic Probation.
 

Transfer of Credits and Residency Requirements

Students who transfer from accredited theological seminaries should contact the registrar as soon as possible regarding transferring credit for coursework they have done at their previous institution. Transfer of credits from unaccredited programs will be considered on a case by case basis. Credit for work done in undergraduate programs will not transfer to ILT. No more than half the credits that apply toward a degree from ILT may be from other institutions.
 

Readmission Procedures 

Individuals who have withdrawn or have been suspended for cause, and those who have been denied admission, should contact the Registrar to request information on procedures for re-application.
 

Introductory Methods Course

All students need to take ILT’s Introductory Methods Course before beginning their studies in order to be oriented to ILT’s educational standards, philosophy, technology and library.  ILT offers this course twice a year--in August and in January. It lasts a total of eight hours, with four sessions lasting two hours each over a two-week period.
