Applying to Graduate School

After prayer and contemplation, you have decided to apply to graduate school at Missional University. While reaching this decision may seem monumental, the process is just beginning! Graduate school can be competitive and it is important that you find ways to stand out during the application process. At Missional, you have the opportunity to do this through your personal faith statement, your written essay, and your letters of recommendation.

If you are applying to a Missional graduate degree program and have a bachelor degree earned from a different college or university, you will need to provide official transcripts for the completion of the program from that institution. If you are a Missional University bachelor degree graduate, please be sure that all of your undergraduate obligations are satisfied and note this on your application.

Likewise, if you have never applied and been accepted to Missional University you are required to answer the standard essay question and personal faith statement. However, if you are a current Missional student or graduate, you are required to answer the alternate essay question and personal faith statement, as noted on the graduate application.
