Graduate Admissions


Holy Spirit College graduate programs will normally require the prior completion of a Baccalaureate Degree at an accredited institution in the United States or a comparable non-domestic undergraduate institution. In the case of a student who will be over the age of 35 at the time of matriculation, the Admissions Committee may determine that the student is adequately prepared for graduate level work by a combination of life experience and the completion of core undergraduate level courses. Applicants who have been ordained as a priest by the Catholic Church or who have completed the Permanent Diaconate formation program of the Archdiocese of Atlanta from 2010 onward will be accepted as prepared for graduate level work.
