Helpful Hints on How to Navigate the Enrollment Process at SFTS

by Dr. David G. Behrs, VP of Enrollment Management

navigating-the-labyrinthBased on my experience reviewing thousands of undergraduate, graduate school, medical school, and law school applications over nearly three decades of my career, I would like to offer a few tips for navigating through the application process. We are here to help you and to guide you through this process every step of the way.

The seminary application process can be a stressful learning experience, and often applicants learn as they go. Staying positive and maintaining calm allows you to be reflective and thoughtful in your discernment. Worrying and obsessing during the final stages of putting one’s application together will not help. In fact, it will likely hinder the ability to think clearly and focus on preparing the best seminary application possible.

At any time during your discernment or application process, please feel free to call or email me directly so that I may help ensure your success. I can be reached at 800.447.8820, ext 802 or via email at dbehrs@sfts.edu.
