The admissions office is excited to help you become an ETS student! Whatever your educational background, ETS has a degree program that’s right for you.

For all of our degree programs, the first step is to fill out our online application and pay the $45 application fee. Even if you’re unsure as to which degree program will be the best fit for you, filling out the application will help our admissions team begin a conversation with you about your options.

In addition to the application, each degree program has its own requirements for admission; please check the “Degree Programs” page to identify the requirements for your specific program.

We have a rolling admissions policy at ETS, meaning that we accept new students all year round. When your application is completed, the admissions committee will consider admitting you into the next quarter for your degree program. For the Doctor of Ministry program, this means that we admit new students in August and January; for the Master’s programs, it means we admit new students four times a year – fall, winter, spring, and even summer.

Tuition and Fees

There are several different payment options available to students. The widely used options include:  Self-Pay, Financial Aid and Payment Plan.

Tuition and Fees are due in full by the first day of each Quarter. You may contact Jacquelyn Hines in the Finance Business Office at (313) 831-5200 or by email at for any questions or to establish a payment plan.
