Visiting the Seminary | McCormick Theological Seminary

Visiting the Seminary

Visiting McCormick can be helpful to prospective students who wish to clarify their interests and goals in relation to seminary education. Arrangements can be made through the admissions office by emailing admit@mccormick.edu. The Admissions Office will provide opportunities to interview with members of the Seminary faculty and administration, to attend classes (if the Seminary is in session), and to meet for informal discussion with students. All Masters Level applicants must have an interview with a faculty member to be admitted to the Seminary. Prospective students are encouraged to visit Monday through Thursday when most classes are held.
