Admissions Application for Non-Degree Seeking, Visiting Student and Auditor
Non-degree, visiting, or audit students can take graduate-level course work for personal enrichment, jump starting their seminary education, or to get a taste of the rigors of graduate-level work before applying to a specific degree...
Students who would like to take classes for personal enrichment or continuing education are encouraged to apply for admission as a non-degree student.
- Complete the non-degree student application form and submit it with a $35 nonrefundable application processing fee.
- An official transcript showing the conferral of an undergraduate degree is required for all Master’s-level non-degree applicants.
- An official transcript showing the conferral of a graduate degree is required for all DMin-level non-degree applicants.
Students who hold a Doctor of Ministry degree may take DMin classes as a non-degree student. Students who hold a Master of Divinity degree may take one DMin class as a non-degree student with appropriate authorization from the Doctor of Ministry Director. For returning non-degree students, additional items such as references, transcripts, a Christian testimony, and other documents may be required. Non-degree students are limited to 15 semester hours of credit at the Master’s level, or 3 semester hours of credit at the DMin level. After that, they must be admitted into a degree program to continue taking classes.
Individuals wishing to study for no credit are encouraged to apply for admission as an auditor. Credit for course work may not be granted at a later date, but a record of the non-credit course work will be recorded on the transcript. Registration is dependent on space availability in the class and some classes may have prerequisite restrictions.

Non-Degree Converting to Degree Applicant
Students currently or previously enrolled as non-degree seeking students who determine they would like to pursue a certificate or degree from Denver Seminary are subject to the same admission requirements as all other degree-seeking students. Courses taken for credit which are passed with acceptable grades can be applied to an appropriate degree or certificate. A course taken as an audit may not be converted to credit at a later date and applied to a degree or certificate program.
Visiting Student Applicant
Students from other accredited graduate schools are welcome to study on a limited basis. A visiting student may not become a degree-seeking student unless they complete the requirements outlined for a transfer student. Application procedures for a visiting student are as follows:
- Submit a completed application along with a $35 application processing fee.
- Submit a letter from the chief academic officer indicating that the applicant is a student in good standing and authorizing the courses in which the applicant will enroll.
- Official transcripts from current school, if requested.
