Apply to Take a Course as a Special Student in the Non-Degree Program

The Jesuit School welcomes the application of all qualified persons who wish to pursue coursework through the Non-Degree program. Those admitted into the Non-Degree program may only take classes at the Jesuit School of Theology, taught by JST professors. (Classes taught at GTU member schools require a separate application to that school. This admissions requirement is for Special Students in the Non-Degree program only.)
