  • Official transcripts sent directly to the Admissions and Records Office from the registrar of each college/university the student has attended. Applicants are advised to follow up to see that these have actually been sent. Students applying for doctoral programs must submit both undergraduate and graduate transcripts. If the original transcript is not in English, a certified literal translation should be attached to the original.

  • A scanned copy of college/university diploma(s) (with certified translation if not in English)

  • One digital photo in jpeg or two passport-size (2” x 2”) photographs if submitted personally.

  • Passport bio-page copy or copy of Birth Certificate (in English)

  • Graduate Evaluation forms for the program applied to are to be given to two persons (not related to the applicant) who have interacted with the applicant in an academic or professional setting and are able to supply the information required. The individuals should complete the forms and email/post them directly to the Admissions and Records Office – the applicant should not have access to these documents. It is the responsibility of the applicant, however, to verify that the recommendation forms have been sent to AIIAS.

    Application Guidelines for PhD Religion

    If you are applying for the PhD in Religion program read our new application guidelines carefully.

    Additional Requirements

        • Some degree programs require a personal statement explaining the student’s reasons for applying to the program. Some programs also require a letter of verification of work experience. Forms will be provided as necessary. For information about specific degree requirements, see the requirements for that program.
        • A Housing Application form is to be completed, when applicable, once the student is admitted to AIIAS (for students coming to the campus).
        • Financial arrangements are to be made to cover fees and tuition. Refundable international student deposits and/or dormitory rental/maintenance deposits are required of all self-sponsored students before their arrival. (See the Financial Information section.) A sponsored student should request the sponsoring organization to complete the sponsorship authorization form and send it directly to the Admissions and Records Office. A self-sponsored student will complete a Declaration of Finances with a supporting bank statement showing sufficient funds to cover school expenses.
        • Applicants must provide written evidence if prerequisites for a degree program have been fulfilled for admission.
        • Demonstrated English proficiency.

    When all forms and documents have been received by the Admissions and Records Office, the program/department committee will assess the student's application and make a recommendation to the Academic Standards and Admissions Committee (ASAC). When an assessment is voted by ASAC, the student will receive notification from the Admissions and Records Office.

    The Admissions and Records Office will assist in providing necessary information for visa arrangements. Each student will receive a copy of their Admission Assessment and Program Checksheet before beginning their program of study.
