There's no substitute for a campus visit.

Many students tell us the most valuable part of their preparation for seminary was their day on our campus. Learn more about scheduling an individual visit or attending a detailed Admissions Open House.

An individual visit typically includes a campus tour and meetings with admissions and financial aid counselors. You may also have the opportunity to observe a class, meet with students and faculty members, and experience our dynamic learning environment. At the completion of this experience, your options and opportunities will be much better defined.

When to visit

Visitors are welcome year around and encouraged to come to one of our seasonal Admissions Open Houses. The best days of the week to visit MTSO are Tuesday through Thursday between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. during an academic term. By scheduling in advance, you can ensure a meaningful visit tailored to your interests.

In addition, if you are an admitted student, you may be asked to come to campus for a scholarship interview.

Arranging your visit

E-mail us at with your contact information, housing needs and available dates for a visit. We may have free overnight on-campus housing available during your visit, and we may be able to assist with local transportation needs for out-of-town guests as well.

If you’d like to observe a class, we’ll do our best to arrange it. This term’s course schedule is on our registrar’s page, where you'll also find our academic catalog.

Open Houses

MTSO's four-hour Admissions Open House events are free and open to anyone considering graduate-level, theological education.
