Prospective Students


As you explore what ESR has to offer and how it might fit with your own calling and desire to better know God, please be in touch with us.  We would be happy to help you connect with an alum, a current student, or arrange a campus visit. 

While there are many deeper spiritual questions about calling and ministry to be considered in this process, there are also practical questions: When would be the best time to start?  What kinds of scholarships and loans are available to assist me?  How many on-campus intensives do I need to take for an MDiv/MMin degree?  How are online courses set up?  Where do Access students stay when they come to campus for two-week intensives?  What courses are available next semester? 

I would suggest the following links as a place to begin:

The Student Academic Services website has the academic calendar for the year, as well as course schedules:

Information about tuition and financial aid is here:

We would love to hear from you!  You can tell us about your interests and request more information here:
