Applicants wishing to pursue the M.Div degree must be admissible to both
McGill University and
to the United Theological College. Please refer to the McGill University website for full details of their admission requirements
UTC’s academic admission requirements dovetail with those of McGill University. In brief, the following may be helpful in determining academic eligibility.
- You will normally hold a bachelor’s degree or its recognized equivalent, with a CGPA of 2.70 or higher for admission to the two-year B.Th. degree programme.
- If you are over 26 years of age and “lack the academic background normally required for entry into the B.Th programme” you may apply for entrance as a Mature Student. If accepted, you will be enrolled in a qualifying year of designated Arts and Religious Studies courses. (see the McGill Calendar for details). Students in this qualifying year who achieve a CGPA of 3.00 with no grade less than 65% in their first term of study (=15 credits) are retroactively advanced into the 90 credit B.Th program. Otherwise students completing the qualifying year (= 30 credits) with a CGPA of at least 2.50 and no grade less than 60 % are then promoted to the 90 credit year.
If you are seeking admission to the United Theological College as a degree student you must also meet the following requirements:
- Satisfactory relationship with judicatory body of denomination for those seeking ordination
- Demonstrate capacity for leadership, and willingness to pursue spiritual and professional development
- Submission of supplementary written documentation (see Application forms) and an interview with College representatives.
