“Seminary for a Day had a big influence on my decision to come to WSC. Getting to see the campus and personally talk with professors and students helped me get to know the atmosphere of the school, which was important because I was considering moving across the country. I remember calling my wife after hearing Dr. Fesko give a lecture and saying,
'IF WE CAN MAKE IT HAPPEN, I REALLY WANT TO GO HERE.’”
Conference Seminary for a Day
The January Seminary for a Day is held in conjunction with our annual faculty conference. Prospective students who attend Seminary for a Day are able to attend the faculty conference for free! SFAD is held on Friday during the day, and then prospective students are encouraged to attend the conference Friday evening and Saturday during the day. This is a great opportunity to hear many of our faculty teach on an exciting topic.

Explore wsc travel grant
We know that a campus visit with face-to-face interaction is invaluable to making a decision about seminary. We also know that travel isn’t cheap. Therefore WSC offers travel grants which provide up to $300 in financial assistance to serious prospective students who wish to experience WSC in person through a personal visit or a Seminary for a Day event. To participate, you need to schedule a campus visit and submit receipts for your travel expenses to the Office of Admissions during or shortly after your visit. We will reimburse you for up to $300 of your travel costs. Eligible expenses include: airfare, car rental and fuel, or mileage if personal vehicle is used, and lodging. Approval of the travel reimbursements is at the discretion of the Office of Admissions.
We offer places to stay with current students, faculty or local church members for free for up to two nights. Staying with members of the seminary community allows you to get to know the community even better. Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org if this arrangement is of interest to you as you plan your campus visit. These accommodations can become scarce during SFAD, so let us know as early as possible. There are also a number of nice hotels near campus recommended by the seminary.
If you are flying in we recommend that you rent a car, especially if you want to explore beautiful Southern California while you’re here. If you just need a ride to and from the San Diego airport and back and forth to campus, the Office of Admissions is happy to offer that for free.
WSC is located at 1725 Bear Valley Parkway, Escondido CA 92027.
