  • A Pastoral Reference* from the Pastor of the church that the applicant regularly attends;
  • A Personal Reference* from someone who has known you for two years or more and is not related to you.
    * applicants will enter an email address for their selected references and a link to the online reference forms will be sent once the application is submitted.

2) Order your official high school, G.E.D., or previous college transcripts (minimum 2.0 GPA is preferred).

Admission of Transfer Students

Students requesting transfer credits from other institutions of higher education must submit official transcripts from all institutions they attended for which transfer credits are being requested.

Up to 30 credits can be transferred toward one of GCD’s associate programs; up to 90 credits can be transferred toward one of GCD’s bachelor programs.

Admission will not be granted until ALL documents are received and approved by the Office of Enrollment Management.  Applicants are expected to adhere to norms of Christian conduct and character, as indicated in their personal references.  Admission to Grace College of Divinity will be official upon approval by the Admissions Team.  Applicants will be notified of all decisions in writing.
