Applying to Study at the Pontifical Faculty

Applying for a Degree Program

Students interested in enrolling in the Pontifical Faculty of the Immaculate Conception degree programs are invited to complete and submit an application form. The following must be submitted with the application:

  • A Non-Refundable $50.00 application fee. Checks should be made out to Pontifical Faculty.
  • A recent photo
  • GRE scores (Our school code is 2498)
  • Three letters of recommendation.

The applicant should see to it that official transcripts are submitted to the Pontifical Faculty from all post-secondary institutions previously attended.

All items should be addressed to: Office of the Registrar, Pontifical Faculty of the Immaculate Conception, 487 Michigan Ave., NE, Washington, DC 20017.

Letters of recommendation should be addressed “To Members of the Admissions Committee”.

An application is not considered complete until all of these required items are received.

The deadline for the submission of a complete application for degree programs is July 1 for the fall semester and December 1 for the spring semester.

When completed, all applications will receive prompt attention by the Admissions Committee of the Pontifical Faculty. The Pontifical Faculty reserves the right to request an interview or additional information from any applicant. Applicants who are denied admission may re-apply for admission after one year.

Non-Degree Students and Continuing Education

Anyone wishing to take courses simply for their own enrichment or for continuing education may apply as a non-degree seeking student. Such persons are also welcome to audit courses with the understanding that no papers or examinations will be required or graded, and no academic credit will be awarded. For more information, please see our Continuing Education page.

To apply, a person must submit an application form, application fee ($50.00, non-refundable), official transcript(s), and a recent photo of himself or herself. Students may apply up to the beginning of a given semester, although early applications are highly encouraged. Admission as a non-degree student does not constitute admission to any degree program. However, if a student should later apply for admission to a degree program, course credits earned as a non-matriculated student may be applied to the degree (the maximum number of course credits applicable would vary with the degree program). The application fee for the degree would also be waived.

Special Instructions for Foreign Students

If you are a student outside the U.S., please make your payment online using a major credit card. There is a processing fee of $30.00 for all checks and money orders received from foreign entities.

Students for whom English is a second language are required to submit scores from a recent TOEFL examination, unless they have completed an undergraduate degree with an English-language faculty. Students are expected to have the ability to comprehend, speak, and write English on the graduate level. TOEFL scores are required in the top 15% to 20% (minimum 96-120 total, or 24-30 in each of the four categories). Special attention will be given to aural comprehension and verbal expression. In the case of heavy accents remedial work may be necessary under the aegis of the sponsoring body before beginning academic work under the PFIC.
