Application Instructions & Procedures

An admissions application is required for all new students of the Veterum Sapientia Institute and returning students who have not studied with VSI since March 2022. After admission, a student will have at least one academic year to enroll in a class. After which time, the student may be asked to resubmit an application.

  • Please fill out your contact information in the boxes below. You will be able to enter your prefix (Fr., Dr., etc.) on the next part of the application.
  • After clicking the “Submit” button below, you will be taken to the second page of the application and sent an email verification link. You will also be sent a link to your application so that if you do not complete it immediately, you can come back to it. Your answers will be saved as you fill them out.
  • The second part of the application will collect information concerning:
    • Demographic and affiliation data,
    • Your educational background, especially concerning spoken Latin and Greek,
    • Your emergency contact information,
    • Which course(s) you are interested in taking in the upcoming term, etc.
  • In order to submit the application you will need to complete all required fields and submit payment via the application for a non-refundable fee of $25 (Credit/Debit Card or PayPal).
  • Once you have submitted an application, it will be reviewed by an admissions officer. It may take over a week to process your application. Serva Patiéntiam! If the admissions officer has any follow-up questions about your responses, they will contact you via your verified contact method (email or text).
  • Submission of an application does not guarantee admission nor enrollment into any particular program or course.
  • After being admitted, you will be issued a VSI student account on Populi Learner Management System, Gmail, and Zoom.
  • Once the next registration period opens for your selected program, you will receive a notification from Populi and be able to self-enroll.
  • Class sizes are limited to ten students per section and some are restricted to Ecclesiastics (priests, deacons, seminarians, male and female consecrated religious). Classes are filled on a first come, first served basis. Once a class is full, students may add themselves to the waiting list. If a seat opens up, they will be notified and have the chance to join the class.
  • Students are allowed to withdrawal from, add, or change courses during the first week of the term.

If you have any questions prior to or during the admissions process please email admissions@veterumsapientia.org. Once you have been admitted, if you have any questions regarding your courses, please email registrar@veterumsapientia.org
