Relocation to Old Mission San Luis Rey
We are thrilled to be opening our new campus at Old Mission San Luis Rey in Oceanside, CA. This location is an intimate link to the history of Franciscans in California, and a beautiful environment.
On this page you will find information specific to students applying for degree and non-degree studies at the new site.
The First Academic Cohort
at Mission San Luis Rey:
All new applicants of FST, hoping to begin in the fall of 2013, will study at Old Mission San Luis Rey. These students will be part of history as the first academic cohort of the new location and vision of the Franciscan Intellectual Tradition.
University of San Diego and
The Franciscan School of Theology
FST has created an academic affiliation with the University of San Diego. This means as a student of FST, you will also have access to limited (and higher level) courses offered by USD. It also means, in some cases, USD students are able to take courses at FST. Initially, however, all new students of FST will begin their first-year studies at the Mission (Unless otherwise determined with their advisor).
Both USD and FST are committed to the success of this affiliation, and the mutual benefits of the academic opportunities each school as to offer.
USD is located about 35 miles south of Oceanside.
The Application Process for FST
at Old Mission San Luis Rey
Your application process is exactly the same as students who attend FST in Berkeley. This means almost all of the information in the Admissions area of our website also applies to you. In cases were specific changes pertain to new students of the Oceanside campus, a note is provided.
In addition, your application form is slightly different because it includes “Old Mission San Luis Rey” in its title. It also lists the academic opportunities available to FST-Old Mission San Luis Rey students. Again, to see it CLICK HERE. Currently, once your application is complete, it must be sent to:
FST-Office of Admissions 1712 Euclid Ave Berkeley, CA 94709 Attn: Vince Nims
You will notice the mailing address is NOT in Oceanside, CA. New Applications are currently received, reviewed and processed from the FST-Berkely campus. As you will see in other areas of Admissions information on this website, simply contact Vince Nims at firstname.lastname@example.org or call: 510-848-5232 Ext 18 if you have any questions.
