Due to limited financial aid resources, WSC cannot accommodate all international applicants. Applicants are selected on the basis of potential for significant contribution to Christ’s Church in general, and the Reformed and Presbyterian faith in particular, in their own home country. International students are typically expected to return to their native countries to minister upon completion of their studies at WSC.
