When are spots usually filled?

Enrollment for the 2021-2023 cohort was closed and filled in April 2021. We recommend all applicants to begin their application approximately one year before your anticipated start date.

Is there an age limit for students accepted into the program?

Currently, there has not been an age limit set to who can attend the master’s program. However, it should be noted that our program is aimed at ministering to and coaching students at the beginning of their careers.

Are international students able to participate in the master’s program?

Unfortunately, at this time, because of the United States’ policy for international students pursuing degrees in the US, we will not be able to admit any international students moving forward for the Impact 360 Master’s program. This is because the degree-granting institution is not located on the same campus as Impact 360 which doesn’t allow an F-1 visa to be supported.

Of course, we are hoping this will change and we will keep you updated if any new information is available.

Can an applicant be married and still participate in the master’s program?

Yes! We regularly enroll students who are married.

Can a master’s applicant have children and participate in the program?

Unfortunately, at this time we do not have facilities/housing that can accommodate more than a married couple.

The program requires 12 hours of undergraduate biblical studies classes, would this exclude me from the program if I do not meet this requirement?

You would not be excluded. The reason for the requirement is that all masters hit the ground running with intentional discipleship, and we want to do our due diligence in making sure everyone has a certain level of biblical training.

If our faculty were to determine that any masters student would benefit from additional training on Bible basics, we would provide a basic course to be completed. This can be completed online.

What is the housing situation and dining plan for the master’s program?

Impact 360 Masters students receive an on-campus apartment at no additional cost. Utilities are covered by the Institute and there is free use of Institute laundry facilities. The program also includes an Institute meal plan (15 meals/week from late August through mid-May).
