The application process begins by applying online. For questions email the School of Spiritual Direction.


The following are the components of a complete application package. All of these must be received before a candidate will be considered for acceptance in the School:

  • A completed application form

  • Several required essays (see application form for details Click Here)

  • Three letters of recommendation: one from the candidate’s pastor, one from a colleague or coworker, and one from the candidate’s current spiritual director, if applicable.

  • A non-refundable application fee of $50.00 which will be applied to the cost of tuition.



The directors will review the application, letters of recommendation, and personal statement before making a decision for acceptance or non-acceptance.


Following acceptance, the applicant will receive a letter of confirmation, advising the applicant of the details of attendance. There will be ongoing review and evaluation during the program by each student’s spiritual director in the program regarding progress and fitness for the certification for spiritual direction.
