Applying to Midwestern

The first step to becoming a student is to apply for admission!

Upon completion of your application, we will ask for a pastor/church recommendation, personal recommendation, and all transcripts from previous coursework.

Of course, if you forget what you need to do, don’t worry; your admissions counselor will be in touch with you along the way, filling you in on the next steps.



Once you have been admitted, the hardest part is done! The admissions team will help you make sure that you are fully prepared for the first week of class, but in the meantime, here’s an enrollment checklist that you can focus on.
