Today Christianity is, by far, the most ethnically diverse movement of any kind, religious or otherwise, on the entire planet. But there is still much work to be done. There are thousands of people groups around the globe who still have not heard the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Jesus is fulfilling His promise to build His Church and call men and women from every tongue, tribe and nation to Himself. Asbury Seminary is committed to strengthening the global Church, and plays a leading role in helping to train hundreds of new pastors and teachers to shepherd these new flocks. Asbury Theological Seminary is blessed to have International Students representing 43 countries including Nigeria, Estonia, New Zealand, Brazil, South Korea and India.
For those applicants whose native language is not English the TOEFL (Test of English as a Foreign Language) or the IELTS (International English Language Testing System) will be required.

All International Students must complete the Admissions Process for the degree program for which they are applying. In addition to the admission requirements and procedures, International students are required to submit:
Asbury Theological Seminary has a limited number of tuition scholarships available for international students. Only those who show exceptional promise for leadership and plan to return to their home country to carry out their ministry will be considered. The scholarship is renewable for the duration of the degree program as long as the student continues to meet the requirements of the award.
Scholarships are only awarded to new students at the beginning of their program of study. If a student enrolls without a scholarship, he/she will not be eligible to apply for scholarships at a later date. Therefore, we encourage students to continue building relationships and raising support through family, friends, local church and/or sending organization to cover full educational and living expenses.
International applicants who wish to be considered for a tuition scholarship should complete the admissions process by January 1st preceding the date of expected matriculation.
