We understand that taking the next step toward obtaining a graduate theological degree can feel a bit daunting. That is why we continue to host students who are comfortable making the trip on campus for Individual Visits.

Is a virtual event the option for you?

"I visited seven seminaries...
and out of them all, Perkins had the most welcoming community. I felt like I was a welcomed student before I even applied. Through Perkins connections, I have been able to work as a classroom leader in a nonprofit after-school program. This experience invites me to connect my theological education with a ministry in West Dallas. I feel led to start a nontraditional church in my home conference, and my classes at Perkins provided a space of open discernment for what that could look like.”
