Helpful information for international students

As a part of the Master of Divinity distance learning program, students are required to come to campus twice a year for an 8 day ‘intensive’ of face to face class interaction. For international distance learning students in the Master of Divinity program, Calvin Seminary will issue one I-20 per academic year (as long as the two intensives are less than 5 months apart) to F-1 international students in the distance education program.
