Application to the Ph.D. Program for M.A. and M.Div. Students and Recent Alumni
Students in their final year of the Divinity School M.A. or M.Div. programs, or in the year following their graduation from the M.A. or M.Div. program, may apply for admission to the Ph.D. program. A.M.R.S. students may not. Admission to the M.A. or M.Div. program does not guarantee admission to the Ph.D. program.
There is no longer an internal petition system for M.A. or M.Div. students; all applicants to the Ph.D. program use the same application process and timeline, with the following exception: Students whose GRE scores expired during their time in the M.A. or M.Div. program may use their expired score in their Ph.D. application within two years of graduating from the M.A. or M.Div. program.
