All incoming students must state their intent of entering the seminary by completing the ILC Registration Form (available from the ILC Office or seminary dean) and submitting it to the ILC Office by June 30.
All applicants must be able to verify successful completion of prerequisite college work (see Entrance Requirements above). This is officially done through the receipt or transfer of final student transcripts.
All applications for seminary enrollment are to be approved by the seminary admissions committee, whose considerations will include a recommendation either from the ILC Committee for the Evaluation of Pre-theological Students or from the applicant's CLC pastor. In some cases an interview with the applicant may be requested. The seminary admissions committee will consist of the ILC president, the dean of the seminary, and the academic dean of the college.
