Knox encourages all interested prospective students to apply for admission to one of its programs of study. Admission to a program is based on a range of factors, including the applicant’s possession of intellectual skills, personal and spiritual maturity, and desire to serve God and others.
Admission to a master’s program with degree standing requires a bachelor’s degree (or its educational equivalent) from an accredited college with a grade point average (GPA) of at least 2.75 on a 4.0 scale. Exceptions to the GPA requirement are made when, in the view of the Admissions Committee, the student’s other credentials indicate a clear potential to complete the requirements of the degree program to which he or she would be admitted. Therefore, all interested students should apply, regardless of their GPA.
Qualified applicants who have received an unaccredited bachelor’s degree, or whose college GPA is below 2.75, are granted provisional admission with an academic review upon completion of a minimum of 12 credits to determine if the applicant should be granted full admission to continue in the degree program.
Admission may be granted to your program of study on the basis of the credentials stated above, or the Admissions Committee may contact you for one or more of the following:
A personal interview.
The Graduate Record Exam (our GRE code is 5382).
An entrance exam in any subject deemed basic to seminary study.

Late applications will be received, but are subject to an extra $50.00 charge in addition to the Application Fee. Applications are accepted no earlier than one year prior to the date you expect to enter.
