Clinical Pastoral Education Admissions & Deadlines

Openness to diversity is an essential aspect of this department’s philosophy and contributes to a rich learning environment for students and faculty alike. In admitting students to the CPE program for both single units and residencies, this department and its faculty will not discriminate against any individual for reasons of race, gender, age, faith group, national origin, sexual orientation or physical disability. Equal access to our educational programs will be extended to all qualified persons.

This policy notwithstanding, all students accepted into the program shall be able, with reasonable accommodation, to physically perform the duties outlined in the position description of their particular program (resident, intern) attached to this policy.

  1. Faculty members and any consulting hospital professionals who are invited to participate in reading applications and interviewing students will do so by considering any and all applications from qualified persons.
  2. Formal admissions criteria and processes vary according to the level and duration of the particular program. Such admissions requirements and procedures are in compliance with ACPE standards and are outlined in the position descriptions attached to this policy.
