HOW
TO
APPLY
TO
BDU

We welcome all seekers of truth who wish to awaken and be of service in the world.
Buddha Dharma University is on a quarter system, and our enrollment is “rolling,” which means that you can be accepted and step into our degree or certificate programs easily and quickly.  Our goal is to be as flexible as possible to allow busy students the opportunity to start – and finish – their education in a timely manner.

To apply, visit our Application page.

Your application will be reviewed by members of the administrative and teaching staff.  Depending where we are in a quarter, the application process can take a couple of weeks.  If you have not heard from us within two weeks, or if you have questions regarding the application process, please e-mail Admissions.

If you have questions regarding financial aid, please e-mail Financial Aid.

Dec 2021: We are sorry to announce the passing of our chancellor Most Ven. Dr. Wonji Dharma. Buddha Dharma University’s operations will be on a temporary hiatus as we undergo some administrative changes. An announcement will be made when the next quarter will begin and when enrollment can commence. We appreciate your understanding and support.
