Return to Seminary Admissions Procedures


Most seminarians are sponsored by a Diocese, Religious Community or Society of Apostolic Life at the time of application. If a qualified applicant is discerning a call to the priesthood but has not yet made a commitment to sponsorship, however, he may enter the seminary at the undergraduate or pre-theology level. He must obtain sponsorship before entering First Year Theology. Vocation directors who visit the seminary are often eager to interview unsponsored college or pre-theology seminarians.
