Students apply for a program by filling out an online application and providing the other materials required for an application listed under each program.



Students who have withdrawn, been suspended, or been denied admission should contact the Registrar to request information on procedures for re-application.


Admission may be granted with one of the following qualifications:

Full Admission

This status signifies that the applicant has met all admission requirements and is a matriculated candidate for a degree.

Conditional Admission

This status is awarded to applicants who have met all requirements, but some official documents are still required. When the required materials are provided to the Office of Admissions, the status is changed to Full Admission. Fulfillment of the condition is the applicant’s responsibility.

Provisional Admission

In some cases, an applicant with outstanding credentials in other areas but whose GPA is below what is required for the program may be admitted provisionally on Academic Probation. A provisional student must maintain at least a 2.5 GPA for one year to be admitted as a regular student.


Students are responsible for contacting their previous institutions and arranging to have those institutions send official transcripts directly to ILT. Students who transfer from accredited theological seminaries should contact the registrar as soon as possible regarding transferring credit for coursework they have done at their previous institution. Credit for work done in undergraduate programs will not transfer to ILT graduate programs. No more than half the credits that apply toward a degree from ILT may be from other institutions. Transfer of credits from unaccredited programs will be considered on a case by case basis. The most important considerations are the nature, content, and level of the courses taken at other institutions, as well as their appropriateness for the student’s ILT program.

ILT normally does not accept the following courses from other institutions as substitutes:

  • BT 503 Lutheran Exegetical Method
  • BT 504 Lutheran Biblical Interpretation
  • PTE 501 Faith, Knowledge, and Reason
  • HST 655 The Lutheran Confessions
  • PT 501 Pastoral Care I
  • PT 521 Homiletics I


New students are required to set an appointment with the registrar prior to enrolling in their first course, to go through an orientation process which includes instruction in the use of Microsoft Teams, Populi, Library and tuition payments. To set up this orientation please fill out the contact form and we’ll send you an email to make an appointment!
