We are so glad to have your interest in a school or seminar with us, however, before you begin filling out an online application there are a couple steps we need to go through. Each school or seminar has its own application requirements. For example, a complete DTS application consists of 3 reference forms, while a Reformation Generation seminar only requires 1. It is very important that you understand the requirements of the particular program you intend to apply for. Here is a list of the different requirements for each of our programs.
DTS: Application fee of 70.00 USD, Application (online or paper), recent passport-style photo, Pastor reference form, Friend reference form, Employer reference form, signed financial form, signed medical form and passport form. All of these pieces must be received in order for YWAM Maui to begin processing your application.

If you have questions about this process please call YWAM Maui or email us.

This fee covers our processing costs, and without it YWAM Maui cannon begin processing your application. This fee can also be payed online by clicking the application fees link under the contact us tab.
Now that you are more familiar with the application process, and what is required before your application can be processed you may continue with the online application process by hitting the "next page" button in the bottom right hand corner of this page. There are eight pages to the online application and you may hit the "back" button to return to a previous page if you desire, however on the last page once you have clicked the "submit application" button you can no longer edit your application, so please keep that in mind.
