Submitting this form and the required attachments is the first step in the application process. Please ensure that you read the information in How to Apply carefully prior to starting the application and make note of the applicable deadlines.
Please complete all sections of the application form. An asterisk (*) next to a field indicates a required field. Please ensure that you have all the necessary information ready before you start your application, as the form cannot be saved and returned to later.
At the conclusion of the form, please attach in PDF format your statement of intent and, if required, a bibliography, and writing sample. PhD, DMin, and MA applicants may also attach a curriculum vitae.
TST strongly recommends applicants requisition official transcripts at the beginning of the application process, as official transcripts, from all post-secondary institutions attended, must be received by April 28, 2022 for those holding offers of entry for DMin, and June 30, 2022 for all other graduate programs. However, for the purposes of initial admissions assessment, unofficial transcripts (e.g., scans, copies, or transcripts received from the student) will be accepted - providing that the transcripts are fully legible and are complete copies of the original, including the grading legend; these must be uploaded as part of the application process or received by the GCTS Office prior to January 21, 2022 for doctoral programs, or prior to February 18, 2022 for master's programs. Information on appropriate methods of official transcript delivery can be found on the How to Apply page of your program of interest. It is recommended that unofficial copies of transcripts be attached as PDF scans to this form (preferred method) or they may be sent by regular postal mail to the GCTS, 47 Queens Park Cres. E, Toronto, ON, M5S 2C3, CANADA (please ensure NO signature is required upon delivery). NOTE: TST is unable to receive documents sent by courier at this time.
If you experience difficulty with the attachment function you may email materials to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please do not send if you have successfully attached documents as part of the application process.
Once you have submitted this form, please see your program's How to Apply page (DMin How to Apply; PhD, ThM, MA How to Apply) on how to submit the remaining required application materials (e.g. fee, letters of reference).
Please note that only complete applications received by the stated deadlines above will be considered by the Admissions Committee and that your application is not considered complete unless all supporting material, including the application fee, have been received by TST.
Financial aid must be applied for separately from this application for admission. Please contact the college you have selected on this form for financial aid information.
*Please do not enter information in all-capital letters.*
Applicants may make only one application per academic year.
If you have previously applied to the GCTS for admission to a graduate program or a TST member college for a BD program, you are required to submit all documentation including official transcripts and references as part of the application process. All application fees are non-refundable. Students presenting credentials from international institution please ensure you read and follow the instructions relating to English translations and the possible request for a credential evaluation.
