Guaranteed Admission Agreement with Candler School of Theology at Emory University

The Candler School of Theology is one of seven graduate schools at Emory University in Georgia. This agreement guarantees admission to Candler, with scholarship opportunities, in the school's Master of Divinity or Master of Religious Leadership programs. To be eligible, VWU graduates must meet Candler admission requirements, including a 3.0 GPA or higher for all undergraduate course work, and must have successfully completed at least three four-credit courses in the Department of Religious Studies (or religiously-themed courses in the Departments of History and Philosophy) with at least a 3.0 GPA average in those courses. In keeping with Virginia Wesleyan’s strong United Methodist heritage and traditions, this agreement will lead to further opportunities for VWU graduates to make career contributions as pastors, biblical scholars and servant leaders.
