Prospective students who would like to have their credentials, experience, and previously completed coursework assessed for degree program eligibility and/or possible transfer credit before formally applying to the Graduate Theological Foundation are welcome to request a pre-application assessment from the Office of the Registrar. This is a free service provided by the GTF.
Prospective students may submit a letter of introduction and any relevant documentation by email to the Registrar or by mail to our general address. Please indicate in the letter of introduction which degree program and specialization interests you. Documentation for assessment can include:
- Resume or CV,
- Transcripts (unofficial or official) of coursework whose units have not been applied towards the completion of an academic, professional or clergy degree
- Confirmation of CEUs or units of CPE completed
- Verification of professional training institutes and/or continuing education seminars or workshops completed
The review process takes approximately one week, after which time the prospective student will be notified by email regarding program eligibility and transfer credit. The prospective student is then at liberty to determine whether or not to pursue formal application to the GTF. Pre-application assessments are current only until December 15 of the year in which they were provided.
