Graduate Study for Occasional Students

Not every student is able to commit to a full-time program of graduate study. That shouldn't be a constraint for those interested in taking seminary courses for professional or personal reasons. ESR provides you with the option of applying for admission to our Occasional Student Program, and registering for residential or Access classes.

Occasional students may take any ESR 100 or 200 level course. Students with the appropriate educational background may take 300 level courses, with the permission of the instructor. Occasional students may take as many as two courses per semester.

Please note that students in this program are subject to the same academic performance requirements as M.Div./M.Min., M.A. and Certificate students. A fee of $35 per year is required to maintain Occasional Student status.
