Answers to Your Questions

Questions about the Josephinum’s admissions process and requirements? Answers to some common questions may be found here; please contact us with any other questions or if you need assistance using the form upload feature. 

If you have not already done so, contact the Vocations Director in your diocese. He will be able to offer support and guidance throughout the application process.

Prospective applicants and the individuals assisting them, such as pastors and vocations directors, may find an outline of the process – as well as information on pre-discernment, admission guidelines, applicant requisites, irregularities and impediments, and admission procedures and policies – on our Applications page

More About Application

Yes! Twice during the academic year, the Josephinum hosts a Live-In weekend for high school juniors and seniors and college students who are interested in learning more about the seminary. Visits to the Josephinum outside of Live-In weekends are also welcomed and encouraged; the Vice Rector for the College of Liberal Arts is available to coordinate your visit.

Plan a Visit

Once the necessary paperwork is on file, an Admission Committee reviews the application and related forms. A Zoom or in-person interview is conducted. The application is submitted to the rector for a final decision based on the recommendation of the admissions committee.
