International Students

If you are an international student studying in the US on a visa, you will need to prove funding for your first year of studies in the United States as part of the visa process. Once you have started taking classes in the United States, you may then apply for scholarships for your second year of studies. More information will be communicated to you during the visa process.

This course is designed to help first year seminary students reflect upon their current reality and develop a plan to meet potential challenges, both inside and outside the classroom, in order to complete their studies at DTS.

This course is best done prior to enrolling in classes or during the student’s first semester. This course is free to enroll in but all assignments are required for completion credit.

Register for Seminary Readiness

This course introduces you to Student Life staff and other support structures at DTS. It also provides information for other required and optional things as you start DTS, such as creating a Student ID Card, getting a Parking Sticker, and taking assessments.
