Cedarville University is a Christ-centered learning community equipping students for lifelong leadership and service through an education marked by excellence and grounded in biblical truth. Cedarville University invites applications to the Master of Ministry (M.Min.) program from those who:
- Have a profession of faith in Jesus Christ
- Hold a bachelor's degree from a regionally accredited institution (preferred GPA of 2.3 or higher)
Applicants must also affirm their commitment to the Cedarville Covenant and agree to abide by the graduate student handbook. Applicants should review the University’s doctrinal statement to understand our beliefs and Christian heritage, which serves as the foundation for our community.
The School of Biblical and Theological Studies and University Admissions review the qualifications of each applicant on an individual basis. Applicants who present satisfactory evidence of their ability to perform at the graduate level are admitted to the M.Min. program. Cedarville University does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national origin, sex, or disability.
We encourage you to apply early for admission to Cedarville. As the applicant, you are responsible for gathering and submitting all the necessary documents required to complete your application.
- Application for Admission [online]
Provide personal, educational, and professional information; submit a personal statement indicating your motivation and goals for pursuing this program.
Provide official college transcripts from all postsecondary institutions in which the student has enrolled, even if no credit was earned. The degree-granting institution should also indicate the degree conferred and the date granted. If you are currently completing a bachelor's degree during the admission review, conditional admission may be granted until the final official degree-granting transcript is received. Program prerequisites will be assessed during the review process using transcripts submitted. If it is determined that you need to fulfill a prerequisite course, you will need to do so as part of your progression in the program and will be conditionally admitted.
