  2. Download the health form; complete it, sign it, and mail/email it to our office.
  3. Before we can process your application, we must receive three references: one from your pastor; one from a parent*; and one from an employer, teacher, or mentor. (SOMD or BSN applicants: please include a reference from your most recent YWAM leader.) Please download this reference form and give it to your three references to be mailed to our office or emailed to [email protected].
  4. Please pay a non-refundable application fee of $35. (If the starting date of DTS is less than 15 days away, the fee is $45.) You can pay online right now or send a check to our office.
