The application may take you some time and we expect you to answer questions honestly and openly. We strongly recommend looking through the questions and considering your responses before you begin to fill them in. You must be admitted to Friends University before you can officially be accepted into the program.

This application also serves as your scholarship application. Acceptance to the program is not dependent on receiving a program scholarship. A scholarship is not guaranteed and, if awarded, can vary in the amount awarded.

Applications will be processed as they are received. Correspondence regarding your application will be sent via the US Postal Service. If you receive a letter of acceptance from us, you will need to read, sign, and return the letter of intent to finalize your admittance into the Christian Spiritual Formation or Christian Formation & Ministry program at Friends University.
